Update: Hiroki Kuroda returns to the Yankees on a one-year, $16 million deal according to multiple reports.

Great signing for the Yankees. Kuroda could have definitely gotten a multi year deal elsewhere but elects to return to New York for $16 million.

The Yankees have made a one-year offer to free agent starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda worth somewhere in the $15M-$16M range, ESPN New York is reporting. Kuroda made $15 million last season and turned down a $14.1 million qualifying offer from the Yankees last month, so an offer like this makes sense for a pitcher who will turn 39 years old before next season begins.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said that he has not been told if Hiroki Kuroda plans to pitch next season.

Hiroki Kuroda pitched 8 shutout innings in Monday's 2-1 win over the Angels. Kuroda allowed just three hits, one walk, and struck out seven lowering his ERA to 2.33 (second best behind Mariners Felix Hernandez's 2.28).

Hiroki Kuroda shut out the Dodgers over 7 innings Wednesday allowing five hits, one walk, and struck out eight in the no-decision in the Yankees 3-0 win.

The 38-year-old continues to deal. He gave up a mere two runs in July (33 innings pitched) and struck out four batters for every walk issued. The Yankees offense isn't scoring a lot of runs these days, so Kuroda's daily value is lower than his year long value, but he has remained consistent and is a solid play every time he goes out there.

Kuroda (8-6) was second in the AL in ERA (2.65) entering Sunday’s action. But Leyland tabbed Baltimore’s Chris Tillman (11-3, 3.95) to replace Tigers ace Justin Verlander.

Hiroki Kuroda pitched five shutout innings Friday walking two and striking out five in the Yankees 2-0 win over the Twins. Kuroda lowered his ERA from 2.77 to an American League leading 2.65 after this stellar outing.

Kuroda is a guy who is perfect to target if you're looking for a solid SP2/SP3 player who's undervalued. Granted, Kuroda is as old as dirt... hence the undervaluing... but all he's done is consistently put up top 20 pitching production for the last 2 years... and among the top 20 guys, he'd be the most attainable via trade.

Hiroki Kuroda pitched seven shutout innings against the Orioles Sunday walking one and striking out four in the no-decision as Mariano Rivera blew his first save at home since Sept. 26th, 2010.

A very nice bounce back outing for Kuroda who had allowed four runs on seven hits, three home runs in his last start, which was also against the Orioles. Kuroda lowered his ERA from 2.95 to 2.77 on the season, but only has one win in his last nine starts.

While Kuroda hasn't been getting the Wins, he's been pitching brilliantly again this year. The aging pitcher is showing no signs of slowing down, and is a solid buy-low candidate, as he should get more wins/run support in the 2nd half of the season.
