Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka to pitch at Triple-A again Wednesday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4:27 pm ET) Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) will make his next rehab start Wednesday against Triple-A Pawtucket. He is scheduled to throw 65 pitches.
Tanaka made his first rehab start Thursday. He threw 41 pitches, including 25 strikeouts. His fastball sat in the low 90s, according to The Star-Ledger.
Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) makes 41-pitch rehab start

|(5/21/15) Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka made his first rehab start on Thursday. Tanaka, who has been on the disabled list with a forearm strain and wrist tendinitis since April 29, pitched three shutout innings for Triple-A Scranton. He allowed just two hits, struck out two and did not issue a walk. Of his 41 pitches, 25 went for strikes.
His fastball lived around 91-92 mph, according to the Star-Ledger. Tanaka will now head back to New York, though the team has not revealed any future next steps or an updated timetable for his return to the rotation. He will likely need at least one more rehab start, though that has not been confirmed.
“I was looking to obviously pitch all my pitches with force and I think I was able to do that tonight,” Tanaka said afterward through an interpreter, the New York Daily News reports.
“I feel pretty confident about all the pitches,” Tanaka said when asked if they were major-league quality.

|(5/19/15) Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will make his first rehab start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, according to The Journal News. He is expected to throw 45 pitches in his appearance.
"It is a decision that we'll make after each start," manager Joe Girardi said to ESPN. "I'm not going to put a number on it. Let's see how he does with the 45 and decide after that."
Tanaka, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a forearm injury, was able to throw a bullpen session on Monday. He is 2-1 with a 3.22 ERA in 22 1/3 innings of work this season.

|(5/18/15) Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka threw a 29-pitch bullpen session on Monday at Nationals Park, the team announced.
Tanaka could head out on a rehab assignment Thursday if he hasn't suffered a setback. He's on the disabled list with wrist tendinitis and a strained forearm. Tanaka is 2-1 with a 3.22 ERA and 24:7 K:BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings across four starts.
Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka could pitch in rehab game Thursday

|(5/16/15) Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka (wrist) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session on Monday and could pitch in a Triple-A rehab game on Thursday, reports MLB.com.
Tanaka was placed on the 15-day disabled list April 29 with right wrist tendinitis and a right forearm strain.
Tanaka threw a bullpen session Friday and reported no issues or setbacks.
|2014 summary: Masahiro Tanaka's major league debut went as smoothly as anyone could have expected for the first three months. Tanaka pulled into July looking like a Cy Young candidate, going 11-3 with a 2.10 ERA and 127 strikeouts in 115 2/3 innings. Then he turned in a pair of subpar starts in July, and shortly thereafter an evaluation turned up a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament. After a platelet-rich plasma injection and more than two months of rest, Tanaka returned to make two starts in September, one of which was decent, but the other -- his season finale -- was his worst outing of the season. Tanaka wound up his rookie season at 13-5 with a 2.77 ERA.|
Playing time status: Tanaka is expected to be in the Yankees' rotation at the start of the season, but given how the second half of 2014 played out, he could be a risk to stay healthy.
2015 outlooks: If not for his injury, Tanaka would be entering 2015 as a projected Fantasy ace, but now he will likely come at a discount. The potential is still there for a performance that would place him in the top 10 of starting pitchers, especially since he has had the offseason to further recover. Tanaka is still worth an early round pick, though not one in the first three rounds as he probably would have been had he stayed healthy.
