07:44 AM ET 12.01 | Free-agent pitcher Hiroki Kuroda declared his intention to leave his native Japan to play in the major leagues next season. The 32-year-old right-hander is a target of the Dodgers, who sent a three-man delegation that included closer Takashi Saito to meet him in Tokyo last week. The Mariners, Diamondbacks and Royals are also reportedly in pursuit of Kuroda.
