No Urgency for Kershaw Extension
The agent for Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw said there’s no rush to sign a long-term contract extension with the Dodgers. General manager Ned Colletti suggested the sides sit and talk. Hendricks said he would listen, but that it was early in Kershaw’s career and “it would have to be the right deal.” Kershaw’s $500,000 salary could explode to the $8 million neighborhood in his first year of arbitration eligibility.
Hendricks met with Colletti to talk about free-agent reliever Mike MacDougal, but said no deal was imminent. — Ken Gurnick
