LOS ANGELES (AP) — If Clayton Kershaw is pitching his final games for the Los Angeles Dodgers, the three-time NL Cy Young Award winner isn’t saying.
Kershaw can opt out of the last two years and $70 million remaining on his contract after the World Series ends.
He says he hasn’t made a decision.
Kershaw is speaking a day ahead of his Game 5 start in the NL Championship Series against Milwaukee on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium.
Manager Dave Roberts says he isn’t thinking about Kershaw’s future with the team.
Kershaw admitted after his last regular-season start that he had considered the possibility of it being his last go-round with the Dodgers, the only team the 30-year-old left-hander has played for during his big league career.
Kershaw says he’s grateful and that it’s been a “great” run during his time in Los Angeles. The Dallas native says he’s grown up in the city, noting that he’s gotten married and had two children during his years with the team.
