Hiroki Kuroda made his decision and will head back to Japan to pitch for 2015. He will be pitching for his first professional team, the Hiroshima Toyo Carp, on a one year deal worth around $3.3 million. He pitched for the Toyo Carp from 1997-2007 until signing with the Dodgers.
Kuroda will turn 40 in February and has no doubt been the most reliable/durable starter for the Yanks as of late. Last season he went 11-9 and a 3.71 ERA in 32 starts. He will finish his 7 year MLB career at 79-79 with a 3.45 ERA and 986 strikeouts in 1,319 innings pitched.
