As Sunday’s deadline looms, we can scratch another big name off the list of available players.

According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, right-handed starter Hiroki Kuroda told the Dodgers on Saturday that he does not intend to waive his no-trade clause this season.

The Red Sox, Yankees and Rangers were known to have serious interest, but Kuroda has a full no-trade clause in his current contract and is simply more comfortable on the West Coast.

The 36-year-old has registered a stellar 3.11 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 103/36 K/BB ratio through 133 innings this season for Los Angeles. He’s earning $12 million this year and can become a free agent in the offseason.

    if the Red Sox don’t bring in Jimenez or Bell now I will be shocked. they need pitching and they’re running out of options. Lester and Beckett in the playoffs is great but with Buchholz’s health up in the air they really need a #3

      aaaaaand Im shocked. like Jimenez can really help the Indians, they just gave up a bunch of their best prospects to add a pitcher to a team that needs offensive help. so be it

    At least, he’ll be out of Dodger hell after the season…
