So much for California teams having the edge.

After weeks of wondering where Hiroki Kuroda would end up, he chose to come back to the Bronx for one more season, as he signed a one-year deal worth $15 million, according to Buster Olney of ESPN.

 

The 37-year-old Japanese starter was 16-11 with a 3.32 ERA last season and got a raise from the $10 million he made in 2012.

Kuroda had interest from the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels, Boston Red Sox, plus his former team in Japan, and for a while it seemed like the two California teams were in the lead to land him for 2013.
