Kuroda rejects offer

You can add Hiroki Kuroda to the list of players who rejected their qualifying offers. He had until 5 p.m. tonight to decide.

In fact, every player who received the $13.3M qualifying offer from their respective teams, B.J. Upton, Michael Bourn, Kuroda, Nick Swisher, Rafael Soriano, Kyle Lohse, Adam Laroche, and Josh Hamilton, rejected them.

If Kuroda, Soriano and Swisher all sign elsewhere, the Yankees will get draft picks.
