Clayton Kershaw regrets turning down an invitation to pitch for Team USA at the World Baseball Classic.
He says he was encouraged by the Dodgers to say no.
"That's a huge honor to get to do that. I would have loved to," Kershaw said. "I think I owed it to the team to show I was healthy in spring training, even though I had two starts at 100 percent last year. I wanted to come in and show I'm 100 percent great and I know they didn't feel great about me going.
"Hopefully, in four years I'll get the honor to do it again, but I'll definitely have regrets watching it."
