X-rays negative on Hiroki Kuroda’s left foot
Yankees right-hander Hiroki Kuroda had X-rays performed on his left foot during Friday’s Subway Series game against the Mets, which were negative. The hurler was diagnosed with a contusion.
Kuroda was hit on the foot by Daniel Murphy’s seventh-inning liner, which ricocheted to Alex Rodriguez at third base on the fly for an out. The play completed Kuroda’s stellar one-hit performance, in which he walked one and struck out seven.
Joe Girardi said that he is “somewhat concerned” about Kuroda making his next start, but Kuroda believes he’ll be able to. He left the Stadium wearing a wrap and using crutches.
