Re-signing with the Dodgers, moving to Texas, retiring… What’s next for ‘shocking 162.00 ERA’ Kershaw?

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw (35) are still together.

Major League Baseball’s official media outlet reported on July 13 (ET), “The Dodgers always know that the offseason is important. But the Dodgers didn’t expect to end their season this early, losing 2-4 to Arizona in Game 3 of the National League Division Series on April 12.”

The biggest question facing the Dodgers is whether to re-sign Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw has performed well this season, going 13-5 with a 2.46 ERA in 24 games (131⅔ innings). However, he started the all-important Game 1 of the National League Division Series and was tagged for six runs on six hits (one home run) and one walk in ⅓ innings. “It will arguably go down as one of Kershaw’s worst outings,” wrote.

Kershaw, the Dodgers’ franchise ace, has been on a roll lately. According to, “Kershaw has been honest in deciding his future on a year-by-year basis. He debated whether or not to return to the Dodgers after the 2021 season, but ultimately signed a one-year deal in March. Last winter, he had a healthy season and wasted no time in re-signing with the Dodgers, agreeing to a one-year deal,” he said of Kershaw’s last two years.메이저놀이터

“But this season is different,” noted, “Kershaw struggled through what was always thought to be a more serious left shoulder injury. He took a big hit in Game 1 of the Division Series,” highlighting Kershaw’s insecurities.

“I’m not sure, either,” Kershaw said of this winter. All I know is that the season ended in the worst possible way for me personally. But that doesn’t ultimately matter. It’s just that I didn’t help the team win. From now on, we will find the best course of action. I don’t really know what that is, I’m just going to see what happens.” reports, “In the past, Kershaw has said he makes decisions based on how healthy he finishes the season and whether he can handle being away from his family in Texas. There are a lot of unknowns, but only Kershaw knows that,” explaining that it’s impossible to know exactly what Kershaw will decide, but predicting that Kershaw’s future will either “end with another year in Texas or L.A. or the retirement of the Dodgers’ greatest pitcher ever.”
