Yankees Sign Hiroki Kuroda

The New York Yankees have come to terms on a one-year deal with starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, according to Jack Curry of YES Network. Curry reports the deal is worth between $10-$11 million - a few million less than what Kuroda had been seeking for, and certainly less years.

The move comes just minutes after Yankees GM Brian Cashman acquired Michael Pineda in a trade with the Mariners, and now gives the Yankees a really good starting rotation. Kuroda will take a slot in the rotation, which gives the Yankees a surplus of starters. They can move one, or let A.J. Burnett, Phil Hughes and others battle it out for the last rotation spot.

So much for a quiet offseason for the Yankees, huh?

  • Twitter / @JackCurryYES - "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."
