I like your team as it is. Kuroda is certainly worth a roster spot but you can't cut anyone. You're correct in identifying Danks as your weakest player but he will only improve. Sox temporary 6-man rotation won't last forever and he will get better. I rate him ahead of Kuroda, who despite an increased k-rate himself, won't match what Danks will put from here till the end of the season.

It's close and if you're truly frustrated with Danks you can make the switch; he is prone to blowups and if it comes next start he might even lose his rotation spot(!), however, I believe he will outperform Kuroda from here on out in every category.

Help with mine, please:
