Hiroki Kuroda cleared to make next start

1 Comment

Hiroki Kuroda exited his season debut in the second inning shortly after he was hit on the finger by a line drive, but the Yankees right-hander has been cleared to make his next scheduled turn in the rotation.

Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger reports that Kuroda threw a bullpen session today without any issues, so he’ll face the Indians on Monday.

New York’s rotation depth is pretty thin right now with Phil Hughes already on the disabled list and Kuroda has started at least 31 games in each of the past three seasons.
