NEW YORK (AP) - Hiroki Kuroda says he still feels a little discomfort in his bruised middle finger but will try to make his next scheduled start for the New York Yankees.
Kuroda was injured Wednesday night against Boston when Shane Victorino's line drive deflected off his pitching hand. The right-hander remained in the game for a few more batters but struggled with his control and was lifted with one out in the second inning.
Kuroda says a trainer advised him not to throw Thursday, but he will attempt to complete his regular bullpen session Friday. Until then, he won't know whether he can take his next turn in the rotation.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi says Kuroda remains scheduled to start Monday in Cleveland.
