Yankees Agree to Terms with Hiroki Kuroda

One piece of the Yankees pitching rotation puzzle has been solved with the reported agreement between the Bombers and right handed pitcher Hiroki Kuroda. This fills a major hole in the Yankees rotation that now consists of CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, Ivan Nova, Michael Pineda and whoever the Yankees go out and sign. There are rumors that if Japanese pitcher Tanaka posts, the Yankees will be heavy favorites to sign the Japanese star.

Despite Kuroda struggling at the end of the season, the Yankees believe that an off-season of rest and workouts will help Kuroda to freshen up and come back recharged and ready to pitch 200 innings for the Yankees in what the Yankees hope will be a World Series Championship
winning club.
