Clayton Kershaw

Admittedly, the chances of him leaving LA would be slim to none at this point in his career, but Clayton Kershaw will be hitting the open market again, and it would be extremely fun if the Pirates signed him. Kershaw has battled injuries over the last few years, which have diminished his Hall of Fame career only slightly. Kershaw has still been an effective pitcher, but given that 2024 will be his age-36 campaign, he’s probably not leaving LA until he hangs up the cleats.
