The Dodgers have the highest payroll in baseball history and a lot of that money is tied up in their outfield.

That could change soon as Los Angeles is reportedly interested in dealing one of their high-priced outfielders, according to Fox Sports.

FOX reported league sources indicated that a trade is a real possibility, and that the Dodgers have told prospective suitors to make an offer.

Dodgers GM Ned Coletti is perhaps most eager to deal Matt Kemp -- who is owed $128 million over the next six years -- than either Andre Ethier or Carl Crawford.

The three outfielders earned a combined $53.3 million last season, with Kemp appearing in only 73 games and having recently undergone ankle surgery.

With Kemp's current trade value at an all time low, the Dodgers would have to eat a big chunk of his salary to have any hope of moving him. 

Yasiel Puig, who the Dodgers recently locked into seven-year $42 million contract, appears unlikely to be traded.
