Hiroki Kuroda Eviction Watch

  • Jon Heyman,
    The strong belief among some contenders is that the Dodgers' Hiroki Kuroda will not waive his no-trade clause for a deal. At least five American League clubs have checked in on him -- the Tigers, Indians, Red Sox, Rangers and Yankees. While Kuroda has been noncommittal on his no-trade powers, it seems to some like a long shot that he'd accept.
  • Tim Brown, Yahoo! Sports:
    Kuroda, 36, may not be an easy sell. He has great affinity for Los Angeles and the Dodgers, and could choose to stay.
    "My honest feeling is that I can't fathom wearing another uniform than the Dodgers uniform right now," Kuroda said through a translator.
