MLB Rumors: Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers Agree to New Three-year Deal

Clayton Kershaw will not hit the open market. 

The Dodgers and their star pitcher have agreed to a new deal, according to multiple national reports. Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports was first to report the news

According to reports, Kershaw's new deal with the Dodgers is for three years and $93 million. The deal can be increased through incentives, and Brown reports there are no opt-outs in the contract. 

Kershaw went 9-5 in the regular season, his lowest win total since 2009. The lefty dealt with arm and back injuries this season, but still had a 2.73 ERA over 26 starts. 

Once again, Kershaw showed he is in the upper echelon on pitchers when healthy. But theme continued with him unable to perform on the biggest stage.

In the NLCS Kershaw had a 4.09 ERA this year against the Brewers, and he was way worse in the World Series. As the Dodgers came up short for the second straight season, Kershaw went 0-2 with a 7.36 ERA in the Fall Classic against the Red Sox.
