NEW YORK (AP) — The Yankees have finalized their $10 million, one-year contract with free-agent right-hander Hiroki Kuroda.

The deal, which had been pending a physical, was agreed to on Jan. 13, the same night the Yankees acquired right-hander Michael Pineda from Seattle in a trade that sent catcher Jesus Montero to the Mariners.

Kuroda was 13-16 with a 3.07 ERA for the Dodgers last year. The 36-year-old had a 41-46 record with a 3.45 ERA in four seasons in Los Angeles.

In addition, Kuroda can make $1 million in performance bonuses: $200,000 each for 160, 170, 180, 190 and 200 innings.

To clear a roster spot, right-hander Kevin Whelan was designated for assignment.

New York also settled its final salary arbitration case, agreeing with left-hander Boone Logan on a one-year contract worth $1,875,000.
