Dodgers Retain Kershaw On One-Year Deal
Having Kershaw back gives the Dodgers a veteran presence in their starting rotation.
Kershaw being back helps some with that.
With Jacob deGrom off the board, the Dodgers still find themselves in need of a frontline starter.
Carlos Rodon remains a possibility.
If Kershaw remains healthy, then this could turn out to be a solid move for the Dodgers.
The team won 111 games during the regular season, but were knocked out in the NLDS, falling in four games to the San Diego Padres.
The veteran lefty started the All-Star Game for the National League squad at Dodger Stadium in July.
