Yankees going with Chase Whitley on Tuesday

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/26/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said pitcher Chase Whitley start this Tuesday against the Rays, according to the Wall Street Journal

Whitley will make a spot start on the day Masahiro Tanaka was initially projected to go. Tanaka will receive an extra day of rest and start Wednesday instead. 

Yankees ace Tanaka performs well again in no-decision

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/15) If only Masahiro Tanaka could have lasted just two-thirds of an inning longer.

The Yankees ace couldn't quite hang around long enough to earn his third straight win Thursday, but he did pitch well enough against the hard-hitting Tigers to allow his team to emerge with a victory.

Tanaka was removed with one out in the seventh having given up one run on three hits with two walks and six strikeouts. He was taken out after a double and walk. The Yankees then took the lead in the eighth.

"When he's hitting the mitt, he's really hard to hit. He had everything going," catcher Brian McCann said after the game, per MLB.com. "He had the cutter going, the sinker in, he had the split, obviously -- I feel like it's always there. He got a lot of early count outs, which I think is a big deal for him to pitch deep into ballgames."

Tanaka's numbers, however, continue to shine. He owns a 3.22 ERA, but has allowed just one run in his last 14 1/3 innings with 14 strikeouts. Tanaka will shoot again for his third victory Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

Yankees concerned with Masahiro Tanaka's grip in wintry conditions

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/23/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters he's a bit concerned with Masahiro Tanaka's grip and releasing the baseball come Thursday against the Tigers. The projected game-time temperature in Detroit is 43 degrees, per the Journal News.

"I don't worry so much about his elbow as I worry about his grip on the baseball when it's this cold," Girardi said. "I think it can be very slippery on days like today, and I think around game time it's going to be 43 (degrees), so we'll just have to see how it goes. ... You just try to keep your hands warm and rub up the baseball as much as you can to try to get some heat in the ball. That's the best idea I have."

Tanaka, who is coming off a partially torn ligament in his elbow last season, has allowed nine runs -- seven earned -- on 11 hits and five walks while striking out 18 innings over three starts (16 innings). He holds a 3.94 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP over that span.

Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka will start Thursday's game

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/20/15) After mulling when to start pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, Yankees manager Joe Girardi has decided to start Tanaka during Thursday's series finale at Detroit, reports MLB.com.

Thursday's game will Tanaka's first game starting on four days rest this season. He threw only 85 pitches during his last outing, which Girardi said allowed them to start him on short rest.

"He's going to have to pitch on his normal rest eventually," Girardi said, "so we just felt that because of the amount of pitches that he threw and how he looked, it's probably a good thing to do."

Masahiro Tanaka's next start up in the air for Yankees

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi isn't sure when Masahiro Tanaka's next start will be. 

The possibility of rain on Monday is causing the uncertainty. Girardi said that Tanaka could start Thursday or Friday, depending on whether Monday's game is played as scheduled, per MLB.com.
