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.

Yep, because it resets their penalty clock so in 2019 when they go over by a mile, they only pay 30% tax (or whatever it is) and not 55%. That $21m will pay for itself.
