According to a Tweet from Jack Curry from the YES Network, the New York Yankees have reached a one-year deal, pending a physical, with pitcher Hiroki Kuroda that is worth between $10 million and $11 million.
Big night for the Yankees. They have agreed to a 1-year deal with Kuroda, pending a physical. Deal will be between $10 and $11 million.
This news came literally moments after it was announced that the Yankees acquired Michael Pineda via a trade with the Seattle Mariners. Looks like somebody isn't messing around.
Kuroda is coming off a 2011 season in which he went 13-16 as a starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He started 32 games, struck out 161 batters, allowed 24 home runs and had a 3.07 ERA.
