Description: The Yankees have brought back starter Hiroki Kuroda on a one-year pact worth $16 million.
Insight: Kuroda had a 3.31 ERA and a 1.162 WHIP in 2013, nearly identical to the 3.32 ERA and 1.165 ERA he had in his first season with New York. However, his record fell to 11-13 from 16-11. He's had an ERA of 3.76 or lower and a WHIP of no higher than 1.216 in his six major league seasons.
 
Cold8/28/2013 10:54:00 PM
Description: New York starter Hiroki Kuroda lost for the third time in a row Wednesday against Toronto (5 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 5 ER).
Insight: Kuroda's slump has to be very troubling if you're a Yankees fan. If they can't count on Kuroda (0-3, 8.10 ERA in his last three starts), the only New York starter who's pitched with any kind of consistency this year, who can they count on? An aging CC Sabathia? Punching bag Phil Hughes? It's just been that kind of year for the Bronx Bombers.
 
Cold8/23/2013 10:32:00 PM
Description: Yankees righthander Hiroki Kuroda had another rough outing Friday against Tampa Bay.
Insight: The Rays pounded him for nine hits and seven runs in just six innings. Kuroda has now lost three out of four for the Bombers, compiling a 4.39 ERA over that stretch. He'll try to get back on track next time out against Toronto.
 
8/17/2013 8:40:00 PM
Description: New York starter Hiroki Kuroda struggled in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox (5 2/3 IP, 11 H, 5 R, 3 ER).
Insight: Saturday was the first time Kuroda (11-8, 2.41 ERA) has allowed four runs or more since June 30th. Boston has a pretty formidable lineup so we wouldn't hold it against him. Expect Kuroda to be better next time out against the Blue Jays.

Hot8/1/2013 10:20:00 AM
Description: New York starter Hiroki Kuroda lowered his ERA to 2.38 after hurling seven shutout innings Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Kuroda is pitching out of his mind right now. In five July starts, he allowed just two runs in 33 innings. Many questioned the Yankees for re-signing Kuroda because of his age (he turned 38 in February) but now it's looking like the best deal of the 2013 offseason.
