Kershaw, Dodgers agree to an extension

Kershaw, Dodgers agree to an extension”

Kershaw has spent all 11 years of his career in LA, and despite injury issues, he has finished in the top five in Cy Young voting seven times.

The Chicago Cubs exercised their $20 million option on left-hander Cole Hamels, who went 4-3 with a 2.36 ERA in 12 starts after he was acquired from Texas on July 27. Dodgers stars Clayton Kershaw and Joc Pederson attended LAFC's playoff game against Real Salt Lake at Banc of California Stadium on Thursday night.

The deal will pay Kershaw $93 million, a source told ESPN, and includes incentives based on workload and performance.

The seven-time All-Star had two years and $65 million left on his contract. I'm looking forward to proving a lot of people wrong with that.

The left-hander gets an additional $28 million in guaranteed money.

If that turns out to be the case, it seems the sides would be more or less adding another season at the same average annual value that Kershaw has been playing on under his prior extension.

The reigning National League champions held a $6 million option on the 35-year-old infielder, who joined the team in August after a trade from the Pittsburgh Pirates. Signed in January 2014, it called for salaries of $32 million next year and $33 million in 2020. "And myself personally, a chance to win every single year, it doesn't come around like this in LA very often".

"Winning is still the most important thing for me", he said.

A free agent can be made a qualifying offer only if he has been with the same team continuously since opening day and has never received a qualifying offer before.

Friedman said the "central theme" of the World Series disappointment was "how much we struggled offensively", which put the bullpen in a vulnerable position. The interest and desire is there.
