Joel Sherman reports that the Yankees have been in “regular contact” with the Dodgers about starter Hiroki Kuroda. Kuroda, however, told MLB.com last night that “My honest feeling is that I can’t fathom wearing another uniform than the Dodgers uniform right now.”
And given that he has a full no-trade clause, he doesn’t have to wear any other uniform if he doesn’t want to.
Kuroda would be a good get for any number of teams given his a 3.11 ERA and 103/36 K/BB ratio in 133 innings. But with that no-trade clause and various rumblings about how happy he is in Los Angeles, I’m skeptical that any deal can happen with the guy.
