Los Angeles Dodgers And Clayton Kershaw Won't Talk Long-Term Deal During Season

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw will not have any long-term contract discussions during the regular season, according to a tweet from Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times.

 

Kershaw signed a two-year, $19 million contract this offseason allowing him to avoid arbitration until he becomes a free-agent in 2014.

The 24-year-old, however, has quickly established himself as one of the top pitchers in Major League Baseball. In 2011 he won the pitching Triple Crown, by leading the National League in wins (21), ERA (2.28) and strikeouts (248).  Through six starts this season, Kershaw is 2-0 with a 2.63 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 37.2 innings pitched.

The Dodgers recently signed slugger Matt Kemp to an eight-year, $160 million extension this winter. It is believed that Kershaw is looking for a similar long-term deal.
