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.
