Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka gets tripped up by Rangers in loss
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/29/15) Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka had a rough go of it in his start against the Rangers on Wednesday. The right-hander allowed four runs on nine hits over six innings. He walked three and struck out three, throwing 64 of his 103 pitches for strikes in the 5-2 loss.
Tanaka (7-4, 3.80 ERA) was given a 2-0 lead in the second inning, but he gave the lead right back as the Rangers scored three in the bottom half.
In five starts this month, Tanaka went 3-1 with a 3.67 ERA.
Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka has start moved to Wednesday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/25/15) A desire to keep starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka healthy and strong has motivated the Yankees to push his next start back a day. He will now pitch Wednesday in Texas, according to ESPN.
That move will also mean that Tanaka will get extra rest before his next start on Aug. 4 against Boston since the team is off the previous day.
"He's pitched pretty well on that extra day of rest," Joe Girardi said. "We just beel he is probably more comfortable doing that."
Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka wins despite allowing three homers
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/23/15) Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka earned an unusual win on Thursday against the Orioles, as he allowed three home runs but still found a way to come out victorious.
Tanaka tossed 7 2/3 innings, allowed three runs on four hits while picking up his seventh win of the season. He was fortunate that the three home runs he allowed were all solo shots.
Tanaka (7-3) now has a 3.64 ERA with 81 strikeouts and 15 walks in 81 2/3 innings this season.
Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka delivers strong outing in win Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/17/15) Right-hander Masahiro Tanaka gave the Yankees seven strong innings on Friday, as the Yankees beat the Mariners 4-3. Tanaka allowed three runs on five hits, while walking two and striking out seven. He threw 103 pitches with 63 going for strikes.
All three runs Tanaka gave up came on a pair of home runs by Kyle Seager. Tanaka left the game with the score tied 3-3. But the Yankees were able to push across the go-ahead and game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh, allowing Tanaka to pick up his sixth win of the season.
Tanaka (6-3) has made three straight quality starts following a pair of ugly performances. Friday's outing brings Tanaka's season ERA to 3.63.
Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to open second half
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/12/15) The Yankees will send pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to start the second half opener Friday against the Mariners, reports MLB.com. Tanaka will be followed by Michael Pineda on Saturday and CC Sabathia on Sunday.
"I feel pretty good about where we're at from a physical standpoint," manager Joe Girardi said. "I'm sure when Tanaka has a rough start, I'm going to be asked about his health. I don't think I'll ever get away from that. But I think the way Pineda's come through the first half, that CC's been able to make all his starts, that Tanaka's healthy again. I think it's a good sign."
|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.
