Fantasy Baseball Sleeper Pitcher: Hiroki Kuroda, New York Yankees
Kuroda has had only one winning season in his four year career, all previously with the Dodgers, but has a career ERA of just 3.45. He recorded 16 losses, a career high, for the Dodgers in 2011 but at the same time only gave up 3.07 runs a game while striking out 161 batters in 202 innings, all career highs.
The run support was not there at all for Kuroda last season. Fast forward to today and Kuroda has all the run support he could ever want in New York. If he can maintain his career ERA I wouldn’t be surprised to see 15 wins in 2012.Written by winmyfantasyleague.com contributor Zach Greubel.
