But on Friday, an ESPN report revealed that the left-hander was signing a new deal that will keep him in Los Angeles for another three years. While he doesn't come with any prior managerial experience in Major League Baseball, he managed the New Zealand team during the World Baseball Classic in 2017 and has extensive experience as a former minor league infield coordinator and infield coach for the Mariners, not to mention the two years he spent as bench coach in the Dodgers' organization. "This deal gives me another chance to prove a lot of people wrong".

Kershaw reportedly walked away from a two-year, $65 million guaranteed deal.

Los Angeles has discussed adding a season or two on Kershaw's deal if he's willing to pass on becoming a free agent.

A back injury this season prevented the three-time Cy Young Award victor from continuing his streak of consecutive All-Star appearances, but he still posted a 2.73 ERA over 161 1/3 innings in 26 starts.

Kershaw has a 153-69 regular-season record with a 2.39 ERA in 318 games but is 9-10 with a 4.32 ERA in the postseason.

The left-hander also can earn award bonuses of $1.5 million for winning the NL Cy Young Award or $500,000 for finishing second or third in the voting.

Roberts has guided the Dodgers to back-to-back World Series. By extending a qualifying offer, a team is in line to receive draft-pick compensation if the player signs with another team.

The Braves also opted against qualifying offers to catcher Kurt Suzuki, starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez, starter Brandon McCarthy, infielder Ryan Flaherty of Portland and reliever Peter Moylan. That is $1 million more than the Rangers would have owed the Cubs if Hamels' option had been declined, which would have triggered a $6 million buyout and allowed him to go free.
