|Masahiro Tanaka feeling less pain |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(7/24/14) Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka is starting to feel less pain in his elbow, general manager Brian Cashman said on ESPN Radio.
"He’s improved, but he still feels it, although on a daily basis it decreases," Cashman said. "So that’s good, but it’s not good that he’s still feeling it at this stage. So it’s just day-by-day, week-by-week and we’ll adjust accordingly. It’s too early to call."
Tanaka went on the DL on July 9 with right elbow inflammation and a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament. He won't try to throw for two more weeks, manager Joe Girardi said.

(7/23/14) Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka is still dealing with arm discomfort, according to MLB.com.
General manager Brian Cashman said "it's too early to call" regarding the team's plan to rest Tanaka. The alternative would be Tommy John surgery, but the team will wait to make that decision. Tanaka posted a 2.51 ERA over 129 1/3 innings prior to the injury.
|Masahiro Tanaka hoping to avoid Tommy John surgery |

(7/18/14) Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka met with the media on Friday and told reporters he remains optimistic that a six-week rehab program will allow him to avoid Tommy John surgery, according to MLB.com.
After receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection earlier in the week, Tanaka will have to rest and wait for the pain to subside before he is cleared for a throwing program.
"All I can do is to believe them and go with the treatment and the rehab program that the team will be having for us," Tanaka said through an interpreter, via MLB.com.
|Masahiro Tanaka receives PRP injection Monday |

(7/14/14) Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka took the first step in his rehab Monday, receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection, the New York Post reports.
Tanaka will rest his injured elbow for an undetermined amount of time before beginning an exercise program. He'll attempt rest and rehab for his partially-torn ulnar collateral ligament.
|Masahiro Tanaka to miss at least six weeks with partially torn UCL |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/10/14) After visiting three different doctors, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told reporters that pitcher Masahiro Tanaka has been diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing arm, the New York Daily News reports.
Tanaka is expected to receive a PRP injection Monday and has been recommended throwing program. Although Tommy John surgery has not been ruled out, Cashman expects Tanaka to be back in six weeks, if the rehab program is effective.
"That's our hope. Obviously timeframes are subject to change," Cashman said.
|The hype on Masahiro Tanaka escalated to near mania when the 25-year-old right-hander signed with the Yankees in January. Not that it was entirely unexpected, but as Fantasy owners well know, anyone who dons the pinstripes immediately assumes mythical status. And looking at Tanaka's numbers in Japan, it's easy to get carried away. Over the last three seasons, he went 53-9 with a 1.44 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 8.7 strikeouts per nine innings, twice winning the Sawamura Award, Japan's equivalent of the Cy Young. But of course, translating those numbers across the Pacific is hardly straightforward. The ball is different. The strike zone is different. The players are different. The workload is different. That doesn't mean Tanaka won't be good, potentially even ace-caliber, but with all the adjustments he'll need to make, he may not hit his stride until the second half. In terms of upside, he doesn't have Yu Darvish's stuff, but his control is superior. In time, he could be something like Hisashi Iwakuma was last year, but again, he may take some lumps along the way. The safe approach is to target Tanaka as a No. 3 starting pitcher, right around 30th at the position, and hope he performs like a No. 2. Any higher than that, and you're living and dying with him.
