Tsuyoshi Wada signed a one-year deal with Chicago. From ESPN's Jesse Rogers:

The Chicago Cubs agreed to terms with left-handed starter Tsuyoshi Wada on a one-year contract, the team announced Monday.

... Wada is expected to compete for a bottom-of-the-rotation spot with the Cubs in 2015.

The deal is for $4 million, a source confirmed.

Hiroki Kuroda "iffy" to get qualifying offer from the Yankees. From CBS Sports' Jon Heyman:

... while [the Yankees] haven't made the ultimate call on veteran starter Hiroki Kuroda, they don't seem especially likely to make him the same offer.

... There is some belief Kuroda could retire, anyway, but it is hard to see anyone signing him to his usual one-year deal for more than $15.3 million and being willing to give up the draft choice. The $15.3 million salary probably isn't too far above Kuroda's value, though, making the choice difficult. He was 11-9 with a 3.71 ERA this past year.
