Release him? They've taken on his contract.  Release him and eat the $21+M?  Doesn't make sense.

it makes sense given they are just trying to reduce payroll to come under the luxury tax.  Kemp is what, a .4 WAR player right now?  It's arguably better to pay him to not play than to have him on the roster.
