Report: Yankees made one-year offer to retain Hiroki Kuroda
According to a report, the Yankees have already made a one-year offer to free agent starter Hiroki Kuroda worth somewhere in the $15M-$16M range.
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.
Kuroda was 11-13 with a 3.31 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 150 strikeouts in 201 1/3 innings last season for the Yankees.
A few other teams -- such as the Dodgers -- have been rumored to have interest in Kuroda and he's also been said to be pondering finishing his playing career back in his native Japan in Nippon Professional Baseball.
