Kershaw Signs Contract

Opening Day starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers agreed to a one-year, $500,000 contract for 2011. Kershaw earned $440,000 last year and will not be eligible for salary arbitration until after this season, when his salary figures to multiply. However, with his current service time of two years and 105 days, he had no leverage in negotiations. He received $404,000 in 2009. The Dodgers payroll this year will be approximately $115 million, up from $95 million last year. — Ken Gurnick
