Kuroda starts for the Yankees this evening in Toronto. He’s been the Yankees best starting pitcher, overall, this season, to date.
But, in his last six starts prior to today, since August 25th, he has an ERA of 4.91 (in 40.3 IP).
Kuroda has pitched 207.3 innings this year. It’s the first time he’s been over 202 IP in his MLB career. Has he now hit the wall?
Since today is a must win game for the Yankees, it will be interesting to see how Kuroda does in the contest, given his recent struggles.
