Dodgers Close To Resigning Kuroda

Hiroki Kuroda is back with
the boys in blue
  • One of the top free-agent hurlers might not be moving at all.  ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting that the Los Angeles Dodgers are close to finishing off a contract extension with Hiroki Kuroda.  The deal is thought to be a 1-year pact worth $12M, and would bring one of the Dodgers' best arms back to the organization.  The 35-year old Kuroda went 11-13 with a 3.39 ERA last year, and its beyond me why the Dodgers would only sign this guy to a one-year deal.  They had to pay more to get a shorter deal, and a two-year deal worth $20M total seems like it would have been a better business decision.  It's nice to see the Dodgers open up their wallet books though, especially with the chaos that is ownership.
