Last season, Kuroda put up a 3.32 ERA and 3.86 FIP at 37 years old. His transfer from NL West to AL East, ballpark included, was always a question mark a year ago. After a year as the Yankees’ #2 pitcher, his value increased this offseason. After making $10 million in 2012, the Yankees agreed to a $15 million deal with less than $1 million in incentives for 2013.
This marks the Yankees first major move of the offseason. They now look to re-sign Andy Pettitte on what will most likely be another one year deal.
