The Los Angeles Dodgers decided not to wait until Clayton Kershaw was eligible for free agency next year to make their move.

And, they’ve made the two time Cy Young Award winner the highest paid pitcher in the game’s history.

The two parties have agreed to a seven year, $215 million dollar contract, making his annual salary the biggest in baseball history.  Kershaw is only 25 years old and will not turn 26 until March.

Kershaw said a seven year contract was what he was looking for.  The agreement has a five year out clause.

And the Dodgers may not be done.

General Manager Ned Colletti has confirmed he’s had talks with the agent for Japanese star Masahiro Tanaka nearly every day this past week.  Teams have until next Friday to reach an agreement.
