Kershaw now highest paid pitcher in terms of Average Annual Value in Baseball History
Kershaw deal - $215M, 7 yrs with out after 5, per
- is nearly same as deal
almost struck with him last season.
The two sides were close on 210/7 before
backed off. That deal also included an out after five years. Kershaw can now be FA at 30.
Well, if there is a guy who looks to be a safe bet to live up to that contract, it's Kershaw. I think these large contracts are the new normal for consistent all stars.
