Dodgers, Kershaw agree on big contract

The Dodgers and star southpaw Clayton Kershaw have reportedly agreed to a record breaking 7-year 215 million dollar contract. The deal will pay out 30 million per season if it is a balanced contract.

Kershaw is one of the best pitchers in baseball as he has 2 Cy Young awards and will be 26 on Opening Day. The lefty went 16-9 last season with a 1.83 ERA in 236 innings pitched. He punched out 232 while walking 52. In his career he is 77-46 with a 2.60 ERA with 1206 strikeouts and 393 walks in 1180 innings pitched

I think the deal is a good one for the Dodgers as Kershaw has proven he is durable and can pitch at elite status. The only concern I would have is if he gets injured down the road but I do believe he will stay healthy and perform at a high level/
