Clayton Kershaw agrees to $215 million contract with Dodgers

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Dreams of Kershaw in a Rangers uniform shatter.

According to ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne, Clayton Kershaw has agreed to a 7 year, $215 million contract with an opt out after five years.

The contract is record breaking both in terms of total dollars and average annual value for a pitcher.  Kershaw was heading into his final arbitration year and could have become a free agent after the 2014 season.

Many Rangers fans had Clayton on their wish list as a potential return of the Highland Park pitcher to his hometown and this announcement ends the hopes of  Kershaw signing as a free agent next winter.
