NEW YORK -- Yankees right-hander Hiroki Kuroda said that his bruised right middle finger is giving him some discomfort, one day after he was struck by a line drive, but he still hopes to make his next start.

Kuroda has been receiving ice, tape and laser treatment since he made contact with Shane Victorino's second-inning liner in New York's 7-4 loss to Boston on Thursday. An X-ray and CT scan showed no fracture or other damage.

"The bottom line is, I'm going to try to make my next start," Kuroda said through an interpreter. "I'd have to say I don't feel normal. I feel a little discomfort there. It's a batted ball that hit my hand in my fingers, so that's natural, I think."

Kuroda said that he will know more when he throws a bullpen session on Friday at Comerica Park. If he is unable to pitch, right-hander Adam Warren could get the call after providing 5 1/3 innings of one-run relief on Wednesday.
