LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Los Angeles Dodgers and pitcher Clayton Kershaw have agreed to a seven-year, $215 million contract, breaking the record for the highest contract for a pitcher.

The 25-year-old left-hander went 16-9 in 2013 with a 1.83 ERA, the lowest in the majors in 13 years, and led the league in strikeouts with 232.

He was named the National League Cy Young Award winner for the second time last year. He first won the award in 2011.

Kershaw, who has been with the Dodgers since 2008, has also won multiple awards for his involvement with charity, including the prestigious Roberto Clemente and Branch Rickey awards.
