UPDATE: Wednesday, August 13 at 8:21 a.m. ET
Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News is reporting Kuroda is not hurt and is being skipped for rest:
To clarify my last tweet: Hiroki Kuroda IS being skipped this turn, but Brian Cashman said it is NOT being done because of an injury.

End of Update
So as a result of that combined with the rain out in Baltimore on Tuesday night, the team will skip his next turn in the rotation, which likely would have come this weekend down in St. Petersburg when the Yankees played the Tampa Bay Rays, as per Brendan Kuty of the Newark-Star Ledger.
"The Yankees will skip Hiroki Kuroda's next start. The Yankees haven't said whether Kuroda is hurt or just getting extra rest. The Yankees will start Michael Pineda against the Orioles Wednesday before Thursday's off day. Then Brandon McCarthy will kick off a three-game weekend series against the Rays Friday, followed by Shane Greene Saturday and Chris Capuano Sunday."
