Both parties were able to come to an agreement prior to Kershaw's option deadline Friday afternoon. Per Rosenthal, there will be potential bonuses for Kershaw, though there's no options or any opt-out clauses attached to the deal. Instead of the two-year, $65 million he would've had by "opting in" to the player option, Kershaw will now make slightly less ($31 million per year as opposed to $32.5 million) but will add another year on top and have some incentives. This new deal will take the left-hander through his age-33 season. In 2018, he logged a 2.73 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 155 strikeouts across 161.1 innings in the regular season.

Pollock and Patrick Corbin likely leaving, the Diamondbacks are at a crossroads

For much of the 2018, the Arizona Diamondbacks led the way in the NL West. Entering September, Arizona still had a tenuous hold on the division, but an abysmal final month saw them fall completely out of playoff contention. They just managed to stay above .500 as they ended the year with 82 wins though their Pythagorean record and 3rd Order winning percentage put them at 86 wins.

It was a disappointing end, and things don’t appear to be getting any better. After a breakout year, Patrick Corbin is entering free agency. Unless Clayton Kershaw opts out, he’ll be the most sought-after starting pitcher on the market. Also entering free agency is A.J. Pollock. Pollock might not be the player he once was, but he was still a solid player for the Diamondbacks. He cracked a career-high 21 home runs for a team that struggled to score]]>
