The Los Angeles Dodgers are reportedly "optimistic" about reaching
a contract agreement with starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw.According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal Jim Thome Jersey , a source said both sides "really want" a deal to happen.Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports added that Kershaw and the Dodgers are nearing a deal that will keep the superstar pitcher in L.A. The sources called the deal "very close."Kershaw can either opt in to the final two years of his contract or opt out and become a free agent. Rosenthal noted that while talks between the Dodgers and Kershaw can continue even if he opts out by Friday's 4 p.m. ET deadline, other teams would then have an opportunity to sign him.If Kershaw opts in, he will make $32 million next season and $33 million in 2020, perSpotrac.The 30-year-old southpaw has dealt with multiple injuries over the past three seasons, but he has remained productive when healthy.Over 26 starts in 2018, Kershaw went 9-5 with a 2.73 ERA and 1.04 WHIP, while striking out 155 in 161.1 innings pitched.While Kershaw's numbers were excellent compared to most of his peers, his ERA and WHIP hadn't been that high since 2010.Although Kershaw helped lead the Dodgers to the World Series for the second consecutive season in 2018, he struggled once again on the playoff stage.In six playoff appearances (five starts), Kershaw went 2-3 with a 4.20 ERA. He lost both of his World Series starts and posted a 7.36 ERA in those outings.Kershaw missed time with abiceps injuryin 2018 after landing on the shelf with back ailments the previous two seasons.Recent injuries notwithstanding, Kershaw is perhaps the greatest pitcher of his era and boasts a Hall of Fame resume.He is a seven-time All-Star, five-time winner of the National League ERA title, a three-time NL Cy Young award winner and a one-time NL MVP.Even though he was limited to 27 starts in 2017 , Kershaw finished second in the NL MVP voting, marking the seventh straight year he finished fifth or better.If the Dodgers fail to retain Kershaw, look for 24-year-old Walker Buehler to become the heir apparent as L.A.'s ace. MIAMI (AP) The last-place Miami Marlins were sellers at the trade deadline, as usual, but kept a foundation for their future.All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto and closer Kyle Barraclough, both subjects of trade talk, were among those staying in Miami. The Marlins parted with right-handed reliever Brad Ziegler and outfielder Cameron Maybin, two well-traveled veterans who increased their market value by playing well lately.Ziegler returned to his former team, the Arizona Diamondbacks, who bolstered their bullpen for the pennant race and gave up Double-A reliever Tommy Eveld. Maybin went to another contender, the Seattle Mariners, for minor league middle infielder Bryson Brigman and international slot money.There had been considerable trade speculation regarding Realmuto, but instead he could now become the centerpiece in CEO Derek Jeter’s rebuilding project Odubel Herrera Jersey , with the Marlins interested in a long-term contract.Also staying are Barraclough, outfielder Derek Dietrich and first baseman Justin Bour. All were subjects of trade speculation in recent days, but none is on the verge of free agency.The deals not made may signal a shift in direction under Jeter for a franchise long accustomed to constant roster turnover.”We’re building something,” president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. ”The controllable pieces we have in Miami, we’re extremely happy to have them a part of the organization. They’re definitely a part of what we’re trying to build to be a consistently competitive organization. We knew there were some names out there that were popular, but in the end those players are still Miami Marlins, and we’re excited that they are.”Realmuto has a $2.9 million salary and two years of arbitration to go. A long-term contract with Miami is now a possibility.”At the appropriate time, I think it’s something that will be discussed,” Hill said.Ziegler and Maybin weren’t part of the Marlins’ long-term plans.The 38-year-old Ziegler is 1-5 with a 3.98 ERA this season. The sidewinder’s ERA was 7.88 on June 1, but since then he has allowed two runs in 28 innings. He’s in the final year of a $16 million, two-year contract, and the Diamondbacks will assume the remaining $2.95 million of his salary this year.The 31-year-old Maybin is batting .251 with three homers and 20 RBIs in 99 games this season, but he’s batting .329 with a .912 OPS since June 29. The Mariners are the seventh team for the 12-year veteran , who has a $3.25 million, one-year contract.”We’re very happy with deals we were able to make, maximizing the value of two expiring contracts,” Hill said.Eveld, a 24-year-old right-hander, has a 1.11 ERA in 35 games in the minor leagues this season. He’s a native of the Miami area, played football at the University of South Florida and was a ninth-round draft pick by the Diamondbacks in 2016.The 23-year-old Brigman is batting .304 this year for Single-A Modesto with 15 stolen bases. He was a third-round pick by the Mariners in 2016.Eveld will be assigned to Double-A Jacksonville, and Brigman to Single-A Jupiter.The Marlins optioned right-hander Ben Meyer to Triple-A New Orleans, returned from rehab and reinstated right-hander Tayron Guerrero, recalled right-hander Jarlin Garcia from New Orleans, and selected the contract of outfielder Isaac Galloway from New Orleans.—
