The eight-year, $160-million agreement between Matt Kemp and the Dodgers officially will be announced at a Friday-morning news conference at Dodger Stadium, according to people familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity because plans for the event haven’t been made public yet.

Finalized on Monday, the deal is the largest-ever for a National League player and seventh-richest in major league history.


Kemp and teammate James Loney were at the ballpark Thursday for Clayton Kershaw’s Cy Young Award news conference.
