The Detroit Tigers were pushing for Hiroki Kuroda, but according to a tweet by Sports Illustratred's Jon Heyman, it seems like he'll veto the trade:
#tigers have pushed for kuroda. but 1 source said he doubted he'd OK move from LA to detroit. #tradedeadline
ESPN's Andrew Marchand reports that Kuroda could ok a trade to the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox:
Los Angeles Dodgers starter Hiroki Kuroda would consider waiving his no-trade clause if he were traded to the New York Yankees or Boston Red Sox, according to a baseball official with knowledge of the situation.
