Clayton Kershaw was expected to take a step back in 2022 in his age 34 season. Instead, he took a step forward. Kershaw went 12-3 with the Los Angeles Dodgers with a 2.28 ERA in 22 starts. His 12 wins were the best in three seasons, his ERA and 0.96 WHIP were his second-best marks since 2017.
Kershaw has won three Cy Young Awards, 197 games (to just 87 losses) and a 2.48 career ERA in 15 years, most of it during a hitting-friendly era of baseball.
He’s also a free agent. Again.

Kershaw signed a one-year deal with the Dodgers last offseason. It was talked about inside MLB circles that if L.A. would have won the World Series, the three-time NL Cy Young Award winner would have finished his career on top. But they didn’t, and now the feeling is there is unfinished business.
Kershaw is one of the greatest pitchers in Dodgers history, and baseball history. If he’s really planning to give it one more year to try and win another World Series, a return to the only team he’s known makes all the sense. If he leaves, expect it to be with an American League team that won’t openly compete with the Dodgers.

Rumors are strong that Kershaw would like to return to Texas to be closer to immediate family. Wife Ellen and their four kids live in the Dallas area – the Rangers are right up the road. Texas has money to spend and Kershaw would immediately be the starter No. 1 for the AL West team.
Kershaw might be a solid Plan B for teams attempting to lure Jacob deGrom. The Mets, Rangers and Yankees fit into that category. The Angels are, per usual, desperately seeking another starting pitcher. If he prefers to remain in L.A. but the Dodgers are moving on, the Angels could jump at the opportunity.
