After the Dodgers re-signed left handed pitcher Clayton Kershaw to a one-year contract through the 2022 season, the three-time NL Cy Young award winner made it clear on Sunday that Los Angeles was not the only team he considered this offseason.
Kershaw, a Dallas native, said his decision came down to the Dodgers and Rangers.
“Once I got healthy it was no secret I was either going to go play in Texas or stay here,” Kershaw told reporters on Sunday at the Dodgers’ spring training facility in Camelback Ranch in Arizona. “At the end of the day I wanted to be here and win a World Series and I think the Dodgers give me the best chance to do that. For this year, this was the right call.”
The great news is that Clayton Kershaw says he will be 100 percent for opening day.
