New York Yankees Trade Rumors: Hiroki Kuroda Won't Accept Deal to East Coast

One of the more prominent names on the trade market this year is Dodgers righty Hiroki Kuroda, who has a full no-trade clause and isn’t willing to waive it if he is traded to the east coast, according to Peter Gammons of MLB.com.

That takes a big name off the list for the Yankees, as they have said to be favoring rentals at this year’s deadline.

Not only is Kuroda a rental as a free-agent-to-be, but he has a 3.13 ERA and a 114 ERA+ in 120.2 innings this season. He has a 3.51 ERA and a 111 ERA+ since coming to America, starting with the 2008 season.

Gammons collected this info from “two East executives,” so it sounds solid, but it is certainly not firsthand. The Dodgers are rumored to be looking to shed payroll and don’t exactly have a lot of options, though.
