The Padres have no time to waste in trying to move outfielder Matt Kemp, writes Eddie Brown of the San Diego Union Tribune. Brown says that Kemp's value is going to be at its peak right after the All-Star Break, and moving him will put the Padres in a better place.

It will give them the payroll flexibility that they will need, and it will open up some room for their two top outfield prospects, Manuel Margot and Hunter Renfroe.
