Yankees Insider: Kuroda durable, and impressive

Joe Girardi joked before Sunday’s game that he’s thought more than once about how it’s possible Hiroki Kuroda is the only one left standing from the five-man rotation that opened the season, despite his age.

Hiroki Kuroda has become a very important Yankee

The Yankees went into Sunday's game against the Reds with a chance for a weekend sweep -- a great way to start the second half of the season after finishing the first half with a .500 record. And they had their ace on the mound: Hiroki Kuroda.

Kuroda remains last starter standing

Hiroki Kuroda didn’t get the win for the Yankees on Sunday. But he walked off of the mound with his health in tact. And that alone is considered a big victory for the Yankees these days. The 39-year-old Kuroda gave up three hits and no earned runs over 6 2/3 innings in his 200th major league appearance on Sunday, a no-decision in the Yankees’ 3-2 win. “He was outstanding,” Joe Girardi said of Kuroda. Sure, the manager made a great point.

Postgame notes: “We’re getting good pitching”

Hiroki Kuroda is the last man standing from a Yankees rotation depleted by elbow, shoulder and knee injuries. He was the team’s oldest starting pitcher on Opening Day, and he’s the only one who hasn’t landed on the disabled list. With Kuroda on the mound tonight, the Yankees could not easily blame this loss on […] The post Postgame notes: “We’re getting good pitching” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Yankees are in survival mode now

BALTIMORE -- A franchise built on championships now is forced to evaluate itself based on avoiding doctor visits. Not once, not twice, but three times, Hiroki Kuroda -- in the wake of another Yankees loss -- brought up his health as the best part of his first half, and his goal for his second. You can hardly blame the 39-year-old, because he is the lone survivor of the Yankees' Opening Day rotation. On Friday, the Yankees wasted Kuroda's seven strong innings because the offense is so weak, unable to give him the minimal support he needed.

Hiroki Kuroda pitches well, but gets no Yankees' support

An optimist might say that Hiroki Kuroda, on the bright side, earned another "quality start" Tuesday night. In Brett Gardner's estimation, though, it was simply a "wasted start."
