MLB: Yankees, Kuroda agree to one-year deal

The New York Yankees have brought back Hiroki Kuroda, as the club agreed to a one-year deal with the veteran starting pitcher on Tuesday.

It was originally thought that the Yankees or perhaps going back to Japan were Kuroda’s only options, but in recent days reports surfaced that Kuroda might be leaning towards playing in Southern California, where his daughters’ go to school.

The deal will pay Kuroda $15 million in the 2013 season, plus some incentives.
