Hiroki Kuroda, who this season won his 200th career game in top-flight pro baseball, said Tuesday that he will hang up his spikes at the end of this season.

The 41-year-old Kuroda has a 124-105 record in Nippon Professional Baseball and went 79-79 in the majors with the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees. In 2015, he turned down major league offers, leaving millions of dollars on the table to fulfill a promise and return to the Hiroshima Carp, the ballclub he started his career with in 1997.
