Hiroki Kuroda scheduled to make next start


Hiroki Kuroda is currently scheduled to make his next start, manager Joe Girardi told reporters this afternoon. The right-hander said he still has some soreness in his right middle finger and will know more about his status after throwing a bullpen tomorrow.

Kuroda took a line drive to the finger tips last night and left the game with a contusion, but post-game x-rays showed no broken bones. It’s just a bruise, which is why the team is optimistic he will be on the mound in Cleveland on Monday. It’s not set in stone, however.

    With the way this season has gone I was worried they’d have to amputate.

    Can you put up one of those old school “X days since last injury” signs? would be fitting for the season.

  3. Bob Buttons says:

    I got a bruise on my middle finger once, and doctor told me it takes roughly a week or so to heal. I would not be surprised in the least if he sits next time around to be safe.

    Just give him Tommy John and a dye-contrast MRI to be safe.

    Can’t be too careful.

    Whew. Thought I would have to use the old “from Cy Young to Sayonara” line. (Poetic license)
