Clayton Kershaw contract news |

I believe that “All things end badly, or else they don’t end,” so this is good news…


LOS ANGELES —¬†Clayton Kershaw reached a three-year, $93 million contract extension with no opt-outs with the Dodgers on Friday shortly before he was eligible to end his current deal. Kershaw, 30, had signed a seven-year, $215 million contract in 2013 that included a player option to become a free agent after five seasons. By opting out, he would have walked away from $65 million guaranteed over the next two seasons. The Dodgers enter the free-agent season with a corps of starting pitchers. In addition to Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Rich Hill, Ross Stripling, Kenta Maeda, Alex Wood, Julio Urias, Caleb Ferguson, Dennis Santana and Brock Stewart return. Hyun-Jin Ryu is a free agent.
