#Dodgers Clayton Kershaw upset by leak that led to report of "progress" in contract talks.
FOX Sports Ken Rosenthal reported Saturday that the Dodgers and Kershaw's representatives are making progress towards a contract extension for over $180m.
Kershaw was not happy to see those talks go public.
"I think the reason we've been able to continue discussions this long is that it hasn't been talked about (publicly). Now that it's being talked about, it's a distraction because I'm being asked about it."
Asked if he was upset that some details of those discussions had gone public, Kershaw said. "Yeah."
"I don't love the fact that I have to talk about it."
Kershaw pointedly directed questions at the Dodgers.
"You'll have to ask them why they talked about it now. We had an agreement we weren't going to talk about. It didn't come from our side. That's all I can say."
