Breaking: Dodgers Make Huge Decision on Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw, a Los Angeles Dodgers legend and future Hall of Famer has left everyone in the dark this offseason about his future. Retirement or a 17th MLB season? The Dodgers have now answered that question, as they've signed Kerhaw for the 2024 season.

The 3-time Cy Young Winner pitched through a left shoulder injury for nearly half of the 2023 season, yet still had a 13-5 record with a 2.46 ERA, better than his 2.48 career mark, and a 1.06 WHIP in 24 starts.

He won’t be ready to pitch at the start of 2024 due to offseason shoulder surgery, and probably won't return until after the All-Star break due to the lengthy recovery and rehab process that's necessary for the soon-to-be 36-year-old.

And when he does come back, if health holds up for all others concerned, the Dodgers will go down the stretch and into the playoffs with a killer rotation of past and current aces Walker Buehler, Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Kershaw, Tyler Glasnow and Bobby Miller. Incredible. 

Kershaw has spent each of the last 3 seasons pondering whether to return for another year, and each time has signed one-year contracts with the only team he's every known. 

He has won an MVP Award, 3 Cy Youngs, 10 All-Star berths, and has compiled a 210-92 record, a 2.48 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 16 seasons. Cooperstown-bound without a question.
