Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka doesn't impress scouts

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/31/15) Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka was 1-1 with a 1.74 ERA this spring. More importantly, he remained healthy, despite the partially torn ligament in his elbow.

But scouts contacted by the Daily News weren't impressed with Tanaka's stuff. 

"I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt based on what he did last year," one Major League scout said. "But would I be worried based on what I’ve seen lately? Yeah, I’d have to be a little worried. ... He’s either saving himself for the season or he’s protecting that elbow a little bit, because his fastball has been around 89-90 (mph), with no life on it today. Two-seamer or four-seamer, it was flat and hittable."

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka allows three runs vs. Twins

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/15) Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka surrendered three earned runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings while striking out one and walking none in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Twins.

"Obviously it wasn't the best pitching today out there on the mound, but I felt that I was able to work on what I wanted to work on this spring," Tanaka said through a translator after the outing, per the New York Daily News. "I feel pretty much ready to go for the season."

Tanaka's fastball sat in the 87-to-91 mph range and touched 92 mph once in the loss, per Newsday. His fastball averaged 91.2 mph during the 2014 season, according to Fangraphs. Tanaka has posted a 3.07 ERA and 13:1 K:BB ratio in 14 2/3 innings and appears to be healthy heading into the end of spring training.

"I think he’s ready to go," manager Joe Girardi said.

Tanaka is set to start on Opening Day and will be limited to 90 pitches in the debut outing.

Yankees tab Masahiro Tanaka for Opening Day start

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced Friday starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will start Opening Day (April 6) against the Blue Jays. It will be his first Opening Day start.

Girardi added Tanaka will be followed in the rotation by Michael Pineda, CC Sabathia and Nathan Eovaldi. Sabathia has started the last six openers for New York.

“We feel that’s the way it works the best. We feel that gives everybody a chance to be pretty ready,” Girardi said, per the New York Post. “Tanaka will be on a little bit of a pitch count the first time. We just like the way it works for our guys.”

The Yankees have not yet officially announced a fifth starter, but general manager Brian Cashman indicated earlier this week Adam Warren is the favorite to land the final spot in the rotation.

Tanaka and Sabathia were considered the top two candidates to start Opening Day. However, Girardi held off in making the decision as he wanted to see how both pitchers responded this spring coming off injury-plagued campaigns in 2014. While Sabathia is coming off knee surgery, Tanaka did not undergo surgery last season for a partially torn UCL. Although, he did miss a few months due to the elbow injury.

Tanaka is 1-1 with a 1.74 ERA in three spring starts. He also has 12 strikeouts to just one walk in 10 1/3 innings.

Tanaka's two-seamer not fast enough as Yankees fall to Mets

(3/25/15) After not allowing a run in his first two spring starts, Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka was touched for three runs (two earned) on four hits while striking out seven in 4 2/3 innings against the Mets on Wednesday.

Tanaka gave up a home run to Mets left fielder John Mayberry in the fourth inning.

Tanaka has been working on a two-seam fastball this spring which has resulted in a lower velocity.

“The reason I’m not throwing much is that a lot of the four-seamers have been hit last year during the regular season,” Tanaka said. “So I’m doing this on purpose, I’m working on the two-seamers purposely.”

While Tanaka said he’s basically throwing all two-seam fastballs this spring, he still intends to use his four-seamer during the regular season.

“I think there’s room for both [fastballs],” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Report: Tanaka the favorite over Sabathia to start Opening Day

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/24/15) Masahiro Tanaka appears to be the favorite over CC Sabathia to start on Opening Day for the Yankees on April 6 against the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium, according to ESPN.

Sabathia has started on Opening Day 11 times, including the last six years with the Yankees. Tanaka has done it once, while pitching in Japan.

Tanaka went 13-5 with a 2.77 ERA last season, and has not allowed a run through 5 2/3 innings of work in Grapefruit League play. Sabathia is coming off a knee injury that limited him to just eight starts in 2014. He owns a whopping 11.57 ERA this spring.
