Kershaw, The ‘Eternal Blue Blood’, Remains with the MLB Dodgers… “FA Contract Agreement”

Shoulder surgery last November... Dodgers honor franchise star

‘Blue-blood ace’ Clayton Kershaw (35) will remain with his former team, the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Local media, including, reported on the 7th (Korean time) that “free agent (FA) Kershaw has agreed to sign a contract with the Dodgers of the Major League Baseball (MLB).”

The specific details of the contract are not known. 토토사이트 quoted a source as saying, “Kershaw only has a physical exam left.”

Kershaw is an iconic player.

Kershaw, who debuted in the big league wearing a Dodgers uniform in 2008, never left the Dodgers.

Kershaw is a ‘Dodgers icon’ who left a lasting mark both on and off the field.

He ranked first in the National League (NL) earned run average for four consecutive years from 2011 to 2014, and received the Cy Young Award, given to the best pitcher, three times during this period.

In 2014, he achieved outstanding results with 21 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 1.77, and even won the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award.

He received a lot of love from fans for his exemplary words and actions even off the field.

Clayton Kershaw , who was evaluated as the ‘Dodgers’ living legend,’ has suffered from frequent injuries and a decline in performance since 2019.

In the 2021 season, he qualified as a free agent without being able to play the postseason due to left arm forearm pain, and was also ignored by the market.

Kershaw was unable to find a team to sign with in the free agent market, and it was not until March 2022 that he signed a one-year, $17 million contract with the Dodgers.

Kershaw, who gritted his teeth and strengthened his will to make a comeback, achieved good results in the first half of 2022 with 7 wins, 2 losses, and an average ERA of 2.13.

He seemed to have regained his prime, including starting in the All-Star Game.

However, Kershaw suffered from pelvic pain and collapsed again.

Kershaw, who became a free agent after the 2022 season, again signed a 'short-term contract' with the Dodgers for a one-year contract period and a total of $20 million.

Kershaw shed tears due to injury last year as well.

He had a not bad record of 13 wins, 5 losses, and an ERA of 2.46 in 24 games, but was put on the operating table in November last year due to injuries to the left shoulder glenohumeral ligament and joint capsule.

His shoulder surgery is devastating for the pitcher.

It is rare for a pitcher to successfully return to the mound after having a knife cut on his shoulder.

Even if the surgery is successful, he will not be able to return to the mound until the first half of this year.

He will also not be able to participate in the two-game series between the Dodgers and San Diego Padres in the MLB official opening game held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul next month.

The ‘face of the Dodgers’ also changed to Shohei Ohtani .

The Dodgers even recruited Japanese special pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto.

However, Kershaw chose the Dodgers again.

The Dodgers also decided to honor franchise star Kershaw.

The Dodgers plan to officially announce the signing of a contract with Kershaw in the near future and reveal the details of the contract. 온라인카지노

Kershaw appeared in a total of 425 games, recording 210 wins, 92 losses, an ERA of 2.48, and 2,944 strikeouts.

Even if he retires right away, he is evaluated to be in the Hall of Fame.
