NEW YORK, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Free-agent starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda has re-signed with the New York Yankees, the team announced Tuesday.

The deal is worth $15 million, the New York Daily News reported.
"I am very happy and excited to re-sign with the Yankees. I am very grateful for all of the interest and all of the offers that I received from the various teams that courted me," the Japanese right-hander said in a statement.
Kuroda, 37, sports a 57-57 record and a 3.42 ERA during his five-year North American career.
