Hiroki Kuroda May Be Heading Back To Japan

Hiroki Kuroda has basically said that he would likely sign either with the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, or go back to his native Japan to finish out his career. The Yankees are thinking that Kuroda is leaning towards the latter to pitch for the Hiroshima Carp before riding off into the sunset to end his career. The Yankees offered him a qualifying offer so they would only get a pick if he signed with a team like the Dodgers and not if he returned to Japan. Kuroda is expected to decline that offer after making $15,000,000 last season plus incentives.

Kuroda has disappeared down the stretch two years in a row now and entering his age 39 season I have to admit that I would not be terrible upset if he went to Japan and I would be borderline ecstatic if he went to the Dodgers for one more round.
