HIROKI KURODA RUMORS

Preview: Yankees vs Blue Jays (9/19/14)

Hiroki Kuroda‘s (10-9, 3.81 ERA) time in the Bronx is winding down just like the captain’s. He will take on Mark Buehrle (12-9, 3.40 ERA) as the season comes closer to the end. Kuroda has been taking it easy between starts to avoid a second half collapse like last year, and so far its worked. He is 3-2 with a 3.33 ERA in eight starts since August 1st, holding opponents to...

Last night, watching Hiroki Kuroda lead the charge across the diamond toward the Rays, it occurred to me that we may be seeing the last of another great Yankee

When benches clear, an unwritten rule says that the no-names must protect the stars. You don't want to lose your starting centerfielder in a rugby scrum on pitchers mound.Along those lines, heros sometimes are made. I shall always remember Shelley Duncan with fondness, because years ago - after a miserable Tampa Ray flattened Francisco Cervelli with a cheap shot, nearly...

Yankees game 148: Cannot close out the finale

New York Yankees 2 — Baltimore Orioles 3 A pair of former Yankees come through in the ninth to break hearts again. Hiroki Kuroda took the mound looking to keep the slimmest of hopes alive for the Yankees. After a very easy first inning, the Yankees offense would have a flash of power. Against Chris Tillman, Martin Prado would hit a home run just out of the reach of Alejandro De...

Preview: Yankees at Orioles (9/14/14)

Hiroki Kuroda (10-9, 3.91 ERA) and Chris Tillman (12-5, 3.36 ERA) close out the series at Camden Yards. Since the break, Kuroda has cut back on throwing between starts trying to avoid a late season collapse like last season. That didn’t help his last outing, which was his shortest of the season against the Rays, allowing nine hits in just 3 1/3 innings. Tillman went five innings...

Yankees game 142: Yankees fall short to Rays

Tampa Bay Rays 4 — New York Yankees 3 A strong start would have a bad finish for Hiroki Kuroda. After striking out the side on 10 pitches, Hiroki Kuroda’s start would begin going downhill. His first pitch in the second inning to James Loney would not come back as the Rays’ first baseman hit a home run into deep right field. He would finish the inning but the third would not...

Joel Sherman says it (He said it last August too): "Maybe these Yanks would be better off getting clobbered by the lowly White Sox this weekend, having their fate fully defined and taking advantage of pitching needs with the Angels and Dodgers to see if t

It's what we all know: If the Yankees last August had accepted their dismal, starkly apparent, also-ran fate, imagine the implications for 2014.1. No trade for Alfonso Soriano, who through July sat in our bellies like a State Fair deep-fried pat of butter.2. We could have traded Robby Cano for a front-line prospect, or maybe three. If we scored a young 2B, we would have been...

New York Yankees trade rumors: Cliff Lee edition

S.O.S.! Four starting pitchers down.The New York Yankees NEED, I repeat NEED at least one GOOD pitcher to help them through the rest of the season. Tanaka’s out, Pineda’s out, Sabathia’s out, Nova’s out. That leaves Hiroki Kuroda left of the starting five. General manager Brian Cashman has already made two small trades, Arizona Diamondbacks’ Brandon McCarthy and Oakland...

New York Yankees Need Tanaka

Well, a week ago all indications pointed towards the Rakuten Golden Eagles team not posting and not allowing right-handed stud Masahiro Tanaka to become available to MLB teams. Masahiro Tanaka would be a great pick-up for the New York Yankees (photo credit: AP Photo/Kyodo News) MLB and the Nippon Professional Baseball league in Japan agreed on a new posting system earlier this month...

Will Yankees Pitcher Hiroki Kuroda Retire?

It’s not exactly recent news that Hiroki Kuroda is contemplating retirement. The New York Yankees pitcher said as much at the end of the season, and, unfortunately, he has yet to decide against it. We kind of thought that Kuroda’s mention of retirement was smoke and mirrors, but it looks like he may be serious. Yanks GM Brian Cashman recently said that he doesn’t know...

Is this the end for Hiroki Kuroda and the New York Yankees?

All season long, the New York Yankees have been waiting to race with all their horses. And just when it looked like the barn was finally healthy, their thoroughbred has gone lame. Hiroki Kuroda has faltered for the first time all season. Hiroki Kuroda, the team’s de facto ace since April, has stunningly fallen apart in his past two starts. After pitching brilliantly for four and...
