Kuroda signs with Dodgers

Says the LA Daily News

Hiroki Kuroda is in the process of finalizing a three-year deal with the Dodgers, the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

It's going to be worth more than expected, $36 million-$40 million according to the report. That seems like a ridiculous sum for a right-hander who might not be more than a fourth or fifth starter, but he does have more upside than Kyle Lohse and Carlos Silva, both of whom figure to get $10 million per year anyway.

The result of this signing is interesting. The Dodgers are now likely out of the race for Blanton, Bedard and Santana. It leaves the potential suitors for the above pitchers the Reds, Yankees, Mets, Indians and RedSox, with the RedSox still on the Verge of Santana.
