Clayton Kershaw contract status
The Los Angeles Dodgers have “made progress” on a seven-year contract extension with ace Clayton Kershaw that would make the 25-year-old lefty the highest-paid pitcher in baseball history, FoxSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal is reporting.
The deal would be worth more than the $180 million the Detroit Tigers gave Justin Verlander before the season. The two sides discussed proposals of 10 years, $250 million and 12 years, $300 million earlier in negotiations, according to the report
10 years 250MM?!?! Kershaw or not that is a long time and a lot of money for a pitcher. I know the dodgers have a ton of money to give, but wow.
