According to this article, Japanese starter and possible MLB import Hiroki Kuroda is headed to L.A. to have his elbow examined by Dr. Lewis Yocum.
That was my friend’s and Babelfish’s rough translation, at least. If you actually speak Japanese, feel free to add more detail in the comments (or email me).
I believe the article says that Kuroda is mainly coming to the U.S. to watch Japanese players in the World Series. The possiblity of another surgery is low.
The Cubs and Mariners have been linked to Kuroda so far.
