Hiroki Kuroda Will Not Be Traded

The Padres were negotiating a waiver trade with the Dodgers for pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, reported Bill Center of the San Diego Union-Tribune, but the Dodgers pulled him back over the weekend.  That the Padres made the claim on Kuroda shows they were willing to take on his $2.33MM remaining salary.

Kuroda, 35, sports a 3.39 ERA, 7.3 K/9, and 2.2 BB/9 in 162 innings after last night's one-hit effort.  He'll be eligible for free agency after the season.  He projects as a Type B, though it's not clear whether his contract allows for an arbitration offer or if the Dodgers would consider it.
