Now Yankees sit and wait with Tanaka

Masahiro+Tanaka+Toronto+Blue+Jays+v+New+York+qlfipwihL3_l

Yesterday, Masahiro Tanaka made his first start since early July, going 5.1 innings while only surrendering a run with four strikeouts. Aside from the first inning where there was understandably some rust, he looked like the Tanaka the Yankees had seen in the first half of the season. Now, the Yankees have to wait until ...

Brian+McCann+Toronto+Blue+Jays+v+New+York+sudKHVIsouIl

For the first time since July, I am happy to announce that today is Masahiro Tanaka Day, but I can't say it with much confidence like I have done in the past. If I could summarize Tanaka's first start since coming off the disabled list, it would be this; with the reward, there are risks, and ...

Masahiro Tanaka prepares for start on Sunday, despite the risks

Masahiro+Tanaka+Minnesota+Twins+v+New+York+ajKNTez0BYkl

Masahiro Tanaka was spotted throwing in the outfield earlier this afternoon and his main goal is for him to be ready for his start on Sunday, his first start since being diagnosed with a UCL tear. There's a chance the Yankees could postpone Tommy John Surgery or there's a chance Tanaka's elbow will blow out. ...
