So much for California teams having the edge.
Sources: The Yankees have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Hiroki Kuroda.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) November 20, 2012
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.
But in the end, he chose to stay in New York.
So with Kuroda locked up for 2013, how will the Yankees approach the rest of the winter free agency period?
Let's take a look.
