Howie Kendrick could become an interesting trade target as the deadline nears.

Kendrick, who turns 36 soon, is in the final year of his contract with the Washington Nationals.

He is hitting .333/.383/.602 with 12 home runs. His career high of 18 came in 2011.

Kendrick has played three infield spots for Washington this season and has experience in the outfield as well.
