Latest on Kuroda, from the Daily News' Christian Red:
... Before Friday's game against Baltimore, Kuroda said he had seen a doctor earlier in the day who gave him clearance to throw a bullpen session. "I'm going to prepare myself to get ready as early as possible," Kuroda said through his interpreter, when asked when he could make his next start. 2But it's not my decision to make."
Kuroda added that he had pitched through pain before in his career, but had never experienced hip flexor discomfort. An MRI taken earlier this week revealed no damage in the hip.
