Dodgers GM Declines Comment on Clayton Kershaw Contract, SP Has 'Open Dialogue'

Los Angeles Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi said his team has kept an "open dialogue" with ace Clayton Kershaw as he approaches potential free agency next winter.

Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reported the news, noting Zaidi wouldn't specifically mention whether the two sides have discussed Kershaw's contract but that he still called him "our franchise player" when mentioning the dialogue.

The southpaw has an out clause in his contract and could test free agency following the 2018 season.

Kershaw will turn 30 on March 19 but showed few signs of slowing in 2017, notching a 2.31 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 202 strikeouts in 175 innings. The last time he had an ERA above 2.91 was during his rookie year in 2008, and he has posted an ERA below 2.00 three times
