HIROKI KURODA RUMORS

Preview: Yankees at Tigers (8/28/14)

Hiroki Kuroda (9-8, 3.94 ERA) faces Kyle Lobstein (0-0, 4.76 ERA) in the final game in Detroit. Joe Girardi called Kuroda’s last outing “gutsy.” He threw six ” innings against the White Sox allowing two runs on five hits while striking out six in the win. “He’s a guy that we’ve tried to make sure he gets the extra days when we can,” Joe Girardi said. “We gave...

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...

Yankees game 122: Kuroda great, offense good in series win

New York Yankees 4 – Tampa Bay Rays 2 Hiroki Kuroda starts for the Yankees and the first inning would continue to haunt the righty. After getting the first out, Ben Zobrist and Matt Joyce would hit a pair of singles to put runners on the corners. A ground out to second baseman Martin Prado would score the first run of the game. On the other side, Rays Jeremy Hellickson would be...

Hiroki Kuroda closed his eyes before serving up home run to Andrew Romine

Kuroda closed his eyes as he threw that pitch to Romine. Seriously. pic.twitter.com/io3iR5VvT3 — Detroit4lyfe (@Detroit4lyfe) August 6, 2014 I would too if I knew I was about to throw a meatball to a hitter with a slugging percentage of .250. Romine took Kuroda deep, cutting the Tigers deficit to 3-2.

Hiroki Kuroda returns to form

After his last couple of outings, Yankees fans had to be relieved with how Hiroki Kuroda pitched yesterday. Kuroda pitched well into the eighth inning and was denied a win due to a Mike Trout triple followed by a single by Albert Pujols (given up by Shawn Kelley). Hiroki's final line was impressive by any standard - 7 2/3 innings pitched, 5 hits, 3 runs (only one earned...

New York Yankees Need Tanaka

Yankees rumors: Yankees ‘more upbeat’ about signing Hiroki Kuroda, others

The New York Yankees suffered through a 2013 season filled with devastating injuries to both the offense and the pitching staff. One pitcher, though, remained healthy all season, missing just one start: Hiroki Kuroda. Even at age 38, he stayed on the mound and gave the Yankees the innings, durability, and results that they desperately needed to stay in the race as long as they did...

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...
