Via Joel Sherman: The Yankees have signed Hiroki Kuroda to a one-year deal worth $16M and it includes the same bonus package that he had in 2013 which was $250,000 for 190 innings pitched and an interpreter.
Kuroda finished 11-13 with a 3.32 ERA in 2013 and pitched 201.1 innings. Kuroda had a rough end to his season and seemed to hit a wall late in the summer. He won his last decision on August 12. Hopefully he’ll rebound a bit in 2014.
And according to Ken Rosenthal, the talks between Seattle and Cano are not done. I guess cooler heads prevailed or maybe the original report was false. Who knows? In the age of Twitter, news materializes in an instant and it also changes just as quickly.
Be sure to check with us for any updates on the Cano situation.
UPDATE: 10:59 A.M. Annnd just as I post this piece, a tweet comes along…
Enrique Rojas reports Cano done with #Mariners for 10 years, $240M
