Sponichi reports that the Arizona Diamondbacks are pushing fairly strong to sign Hiroki Kuroda and could be preparing a multi-year deal worth around US$12M a year.  An unnamed MLB source is also quoted as saying that the Diamondbacks may invite Kuroda out to Arizona, with his family, to alleviate any concerns he might have about the location/facilities.

The Colorado Rockies, Boston Red Sox, and Chicago Cubs are amongst the teams that are said to be interested in Kuroda.
