The Dodgers’ aggressive ownership group has been in full swing this winter, fulfilling the expectations fans were hoping for sure. However, there is one major item on the ownership’s to-do list, sign Clayton Kershaw to a long-term deal. As of today, those discussions haven’t taken place quite yet. As we recently heard from a recent interview between Clayton Kershaw and Dylan Hernandez, Kershaw and the Dodgers haven’t started discussing a contract extension. “We’ll see,” Kershaw said. “I don’t have any expectations.” The Dodgers are fully expected to discuss an extension before Spring Training begins next month, Hernandez writes. Kershaw is set to earn $11MM in 2013 and is currently on track to hit free agency following the 2014 season. He’ll go to arbitration one last time after the conclusion of this season, but I highly doubt the Dodgers will ever let this situation get to that point. Kershaw, the NL Cy Young winner in 2011, was the runner-up for the award this past season. He posted a 2.53 ERA with 9.1 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 in 227 2/3 innings in 2012, leading the NL in ERA for the second consecutive season. Unsurprisingly, the expectations are just as high for Kershaw in 2013.
