Saturday January 14th, 2012

The New York Yankees have agreed to terms with Hiroki Kuroda, according to several online reports.


Buster Olney of ESPN is reporting that the deal is one-year worth $10 million. Kuroda, 36, has spent the last four seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers. His best season was last year, when he had an ERA just over three and 13 wins. He will join a starting rotation in New York that has just added ex-Seattle Mariner starter Michael Pineda.
