Here are a few notes from the Yankees before tonight’s game with the Baltimore Orioles.
Masahiro Tanaka: Masahiro Tanaka threw again on flat ground today, this time throwing nothing but fastballs. Tanaka reported no pain and he feels he could return to the Yankees very soon with the progress he’s making.
Hiroki Kuroda: The Yankees sent out a pitching rotation yesterday that originally didn’t include Hiroki Kuroda. The Yankees admitted their error and have now said Kuroda will start on Sunday vs. the Tampa Bay Rays.
