NO JOKIE…HIROKI TOOK LARGE PAY CUT TO RETURN TO JAPAN

untitled

Hiroki Kuroda made $88 Mil over his 7 year MLB career.  In 2014, Kuroda made 16 million with the Yankees.  That is the most he had earned.  Kuroda probably would have earned less if he signed with the Yankees for 2015.  Kuroda did take a large cut in pay to pitch in his native Japan.  The Hiroshima Carp will pay Kuroda 400 million Yen, which converts to a little over 3 million.  The deal will include performance bonuses, which could make the contract higher.  The lowest Kuroda made in MLB was 7.4 million in L.A.  The highest paid player in Japan is Shinnosuke Abe, a catcher, who earns 600 million Yen or 6 million.  The highest paid American player was Andruw Jones at 3.8 million.
