The deal will pay Kershaw $93 million, a source told ESPN, and includes incentives based on workload and performance.

The reigning National League champions held a $6 million option on the 35-year-old infielder, who joined the team in August after a trade from the Pittsburgh Pirates.

This replaces Kershaw's previous deal, which had two seasons remaining on it worth $65 million.

The two sides struck a deal Friday afternoon. It called for salaries of $32 million next year and $33 million in 2020. He's a three-time NL Cy Young Award victor (runner-up twice) and a seven-time All-Star. He's eager to prove the doubters wrong while wearing a Los Angeles Dodgers uniform.

"It was more valuable to me to just stay here", he said.

At 30, Kershaw has experience a fastball velocity decrease, and he missed time this season because of two stints on the disabled list.

Bernd Leno shaky, Lucas Torreira tenacious as Arsenal hold Liverpool
Arsenal responded and finally got a deserved equaliser through Alexandre Lacazette late in the game, much to Leno's relief. And, as Klopp was keen to underline in his own press conference, it was Liverpool who had the best chances on Saturday.

"It really wasn't as much of a question for me this time around", he said. "And myself personally, a chance to win every single year, it doesn't come around like this in LA very often".

"We could not have any more respect for any individual than we have for Michael", general manager Chris Antonetti said. He signed a seven-year, $215 million with the franchise in 2013 that included an option that he could become a free agent after the fifth-season. "But that's as long as I was willing to commit to right now".

In his career with the Dodgers, he has gone 153-69 in 316 starts, including one game finished and 25 complete games.

A free agent can be made a qualifying offer only if he has been with the same team continuously since opening day and has never received a qualifying offer before.

Gonzales, who turns 27 in February, went 13-9 with a 4.00 ERA in 29 starts in his first full season in the majors.
