Clayton Kershaw On Future: ‘No Idea’

Has left-handed pitcher Clayton Kershaw thrown his final pitch with the Los Angeles Dodgers?

Kershaw got hurt in his final start of the regular season, leading to questions about his future as he is set to reach free agency after the World Series when his three-year, $93 million contract expires.

Despite pitching in MLB since 2008, Kershaw is 33 years old and has only ever played with another team.

Los Angeles Times’ Jorge Castillo reports that Kershaw said he had “no idea” when asked specifically about his future.

“I think I said a while ago I have no idea, still have no idea. So, we’ll win the World Series and go from there,” Kershaw said.

Kershaw seemed to give a hint about what he is thinking when addressing questions Friday about his status, as he told reporters he received a PRP injection that should allow him to avoid surgery and said he should be ready for spring training.

The 33-year-old pitcher went 10-8 with a 3.55 ERA in 121.2 innings this season, reports.

Last month, OutKick reported that both Kershaw and the Dodgers are likely to hold off on contract talks until a new collective bargaining agreement is reached.

In his career, Kershaw has made $257,701,142. It will be interesting to see how things playout for the pitcher and the Dodgers this offseason.

  1. Clayton’s best days are behind him. The Dodgers would likely want to take a hometown discount, which he’d likely not take

    The Angels will probably be overpaying for pitching, or he’d probably be tempted to go home to Texas. Of course these career NL pitchers don’t typically make the jump to the AL if the can avoid it.
