GOODYEAR, AZ: Tony Kemp, an outfielder/infielder, has been dismissed by the Reds, according to his transactions tracker on

He had already agreed to a minor league contract with the team, which gave him the option to opt out on March 23 if he wasn't added to the roster. He was moved to minor league camp, the Reds confirmed Tuesday.

The outcome is the same regardless of whether he exercised his opt-out or the club actively allowed him to move on to another club. Kemp is once more a free agent and will search for his next project.

Kemp, 32, spent the last four seasons in Oakland and in 2023, he slashed .209/.303/.304 with 5 home runs across 359 AB.

Tony Kemp could easily catch on with another club as a bench piece or on a minor league deal. With his versatility and defensive abilities, he could prove valuable for a club looking to add another bat.

Kemp is certainly on the wrong end of age, with his career on the tail end. With his veteran presence and ability on the field, he could catch on to a club before or at the start of 2024.
