Matt Kemp and his ex-Padres teammates give us the first #hugwatch of the MLB trade season

Matt Kemp’s time in San Diego is officially over. The Padres traded him to the Atlanta Braves in exchange for left fielder Hector Olivera.

And while his exit could have been a quiet one were it not for a game taking place when the trade was announced, Kemp’s farewell became an emotional one for fans to see. He hugged the people in the Padres’ dugout who at that point became his ex-teammates.

Good luck in Atlanta, Matt!
