As a result of their rainout against the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday, May 19, the New York Yankees will skip SP Vidal Nuno in the rotation. SPs CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes and Hiroki Kuroda are scheduled to face the Baltimore Orioles in a three-game series beginning Monday, May 20.

New York Yankees SP Hiroki Kuroda allowed just one earned run, three hits and a walk over 7 1/3 innings Saturday, April 20, in a no-decision against the Toronto Blue Jays. He also struck out seven batters in the 108-pitch quality start. The Yankees are being careful with Kuroda, who has thrown 100 or more pitches in three of his first four starts. "We've got to remember that he's not 25 anymore either," manager Joe Girardi said. "It's a long season. I think he went 114 (pitches) the time before, but I knew he had an extra day - an extra day leading up to that and an extra day after. We're on five days for a while, and I don't want to kill these guys early."

New York Yankees SP Hiroki Kuroda tossed a five-hit complete game shutout against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, April 14, for his fifth career shutout. He struck out four and walked none in the start while inducing 18 ground-ball outs.
Fantasy Tip: Kuroda's sinker was in top form in this one, and it's obvious that the finger injury that he suffered in his first start is far in the rearview mirror.

New York Yankees SP Hiroki Kuroda (finger) threw a 36-pitch bullpen session Friday, April 5, and is expected to make his next start versus the Cleveland Indians Monday, April 8, barring a setback.

Fantasy Tip: Unless Kuroda suffers a setback this weekend, start him as you usually would against the Tribe on Monday.
