Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Inks new three-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw signed a three-year, $93 million contract with the Dodgers on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Both parties were able to come to an agreement prior to Kershaw's option deadline Friday afternoon. Per Rosenthal, there will be potential bonuses for Kershaw, though there's no options or any opt-out clauses attached to the deal. Instead of the two-year, $65 million he would've had by "opting in" to his existing player option, Kershaw will now make slightly less per year ($31 million as opposed to $32.5 million) but will add another season on top and have some incentives. This new deal will take the left-hander through his age-33 season. In 2018, he logged a 2.73 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 155 strikeouts across 161.1 innings in the regular season.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Option deadline extended
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw and the Dodgers agreed to extend the deadline on his option decision until Friday.

The original deadline for Kershaw to decide whether he'll opt out of the final two years of his contract -- worth $65 million -- was Wednesday night. Despite a slight downtick in velocity, Kershaw still posted a 2.73 ERA and 1.04 WHIP across 26 starts in 2018.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: May opt out of contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw said Sunday in the aftermath of the Dodgers' World Series loss to the Red Sox that he hasn't decided whether he'll opt out of the final two years of his contract and become a free agent this winter, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. "I've got three days now to think about [the contract situation] before anything happens. And so it will be an eventful three days for me, and I'll try to figure it out."

With the 2018 season officially coming to a close, he'll have until Wednesday to make a decision on his contract status for the upcoming campaign. If he opts out, Kershaw will forgo the $65 million remaining on his deal, though he likely wouldn't have much trouble recouping that amount -- and then some -- in free agency while re-signing with the Dodgers or joining another club. Although a stark decline in velocity this season in addition to recurring health issues in recent years casts some doubt about Kershaw's ability to continue pitching at an elite level well into his 30s, he was still unquestionably an ace-level talent in 2018. The southpaw delivered a 2.73 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in his 26 starts, with the stellar ratios somehow representing his worst marks since 2010.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Set to start Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw was announced as the starter for Game 5 of the World Series against the Red Sox, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The Dodger ace was roughed up a bit in the first game of the series, allowing five runs on seven hits in just four innings of work. Kershaw will get a chance to redeem himself in Game 5 at home, as he hopes to keep the Dodgers in the series before it potentially goes back to Boston.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Officially named as Game 1 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw was confirmed as the starter for Game 1 of the World Series in Boston on Tuesday, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports.

The decision was an expected one, despite Kershaw pitching Saturday to close out the Brewers in Game 7 of the NLDS. The Dodgers' ace threw just 15 pitches in that game, the equivalent of a standard bullpen session, so he should be ready to go without a pitch count on Tuesday. Kershaw made two starts and one relief appearance in last year's World Series, finishing with a 4.02 ERA in 15.2 innings.
