Yankees, Kuroda closing in on deal
The Yankees have reportedly finalized an agreement with Hiroki Kuroda, securing him with a one-year contract and his same bonus package as the 2013 season.
According to the New York Post‘s Joel Sherman, Kuroda will sign a one-year, $16-million deal with a $250,000 bonus for innings pitched. It also includes an interpreter.
There has been mutual interest between the two parties to find a deal after Kuroda won double-digit games in each of his first two seasons in the Bronx.
