While the wounds of losing a second consecutive World Series are still sore, the Dodgers and their star pitcher Clayton Kershaw have come to terms on a 3-year, $93-million extension to keep the 30-year-old ace in LA for a little while longer. 

Kershaw has spent his entire MLB career as a Dodger and it looks like there's a chance he will end it as one too now. Over 11 seasons, Kershaw has posted an incredible 2.39 ERA.

Kershaw essentially used the threat of his opt-out clause against the Dodgers and in turn was able to negotiate an additional year and $28 million guaranteed. Kershaw was already the highest-paid pitcher in Major League Baseball, and this should help him keep that title for a little bit longer.
