Tigers, Dodgers Talking Kuroda

The Tigers and Dodgers have had dialogue about a deal that would send Hiroki Kuroda to Detroit, sources tell Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.  However, other teams remain involved and a trade is not yet close.

The Rangers and Indians are among the other teams with interest in Kuroda, according to major-league sources.  We also heard this week that the Red Sox also inquired on the veteran hurler. 

The 36-year-old's no-trade clause could potentially be a stumbling block in any deal.  It has been rumored that Kuroda would decline trades to the East Coast. 

Kuroda signed a one-year, $12MM deal with the Dodgers before this season.
