2012 MLB Offseason: Diamondbacks Have Pitching Interest In Hiroki Kuroda, Mark Buehrle

The Arizona Diamondbacks have continued shopping during the 2012 MLB offseason and turn their attention to pitching. According to MLB Trade Rumors, the Diamondbacks have interest in pitchers Hiroki Kuroda and Mark Buehrle.

The 36-year-old Kuroda has spent his four season pro career with the Los Angeles Dodgers, winning on average 47.1% of his pitching match-ups. Last season, Kuroda recorded a 13-16 record with a 3.07 ERA and 161 strikeouts.

Buehrle, 32, has spent his entire 11-year MLB career with the Chicago White Sox. The left-handed pitcher posted a 13-9 record last season with a 3.59 ERA and 109 strikeouts. He won 59.1% of his games last season and has made three All-Star Game appearances during his career (2002, 2005 and 2009).

The Diamondbacks signed Aaron Hill to a two-year contract over the weekend and will look to bolster their roster with pitching next. Arizona will continue surveying the free agent market as the organization builds its roster for the 2012 season.
