Masahiro Tanaka will make his pinstripe debut today at Yankee Stadium, but it’s not going to be in a game. Instead, Tanaka will be introduced by the Yankees organization in a press conference event, the fourth press conference event this offseason.
Tanaka (of course) is scheduled to be in attendance; there was a story Tanaka rented a charter jet for five people and his poodle for $195,000 in order to make a one-way trip to New York City. I imagine after the press conference, he’ll be on his way to Tampa, Florida for Spring Training on Friday.
The press conference is scheduled for 1 p.m. and will be televised on the YES Network.
