AP source: Kuroda, Yanks agree to $15 million deal


NEW YORK (AP) - Hiroki Kuroda is staying with the New York Yankees, agreeing to a $15 million, one-year contract.

A person familiar with the negotiations said the right-hander reached the agreement Tuesday. The person was speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal was not yet final.

Kuroda, who turns 38 in February, was the Yankees' most consistent pitcher during the regular season. He went 16-11, tying for the team lead in wins, and led New York with 33 starts and 219 2-3 innings.
