Masahiro Tanaka loses second in three starts for Yankees
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(8/21/15) Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka dropped to 9-6 on the year with a loss to Cleveland on Friday.
Tanaka lost for the second time in three starts. He gave up four runs, three earned, in six innings. He's given up at least three earned runs in five of his last seven starts.
Tanaka lasted at least six innings for his ninth straight start.
Yankees SP Masahiro Tanka goes the distance in win over Jays
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/15/15) Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka had his ace-like stuff on display Saturday against the Blue Jays. Tanaka twirled a gem, throwing a complete game victory. He allowed just one run on five hits. He walked three and struck out eight, as he shut down a very potent Blue Jays offense in the 4-1 win.
The only run the Jays would get off of Tanaka came in the fifth inning, which tied the game at 1-1. But Tanaka kept the Yankees in the game, allowing them to regain the lead, en route to the win.
The Yankees were in much need of this kind of performance from Tanaka, as their bullpen was rather depleted. Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller were both unavailable on Saturday after being used heavily each of the previous two ballgames. But Tanaka came up huge, in what was likely the most significant outing of his career to-date.
This was the first complete game this season for Tanaka, who is now 5-2 with a 3.10 ERA over his past seven starts.
Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka receives loss in Sunday's start
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(8/9/15) Despite producing a quality start in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka was on the losing end of the 2-0 loss.
Tanaka gave up two runs on three hits over six innings, but two of the hits were solo home runs by Josh Donaldson in the first inning and Jose Bautista in the fourth. He also struck out five and did not walk a batter.
Tanaka has earned a quality start in six of his last seven starts.
Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka earns eighth win of the year
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(8/4/15) Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka allowed three runs on five hits in six innings of work in New York's 13-3 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday. Tanaka, who struck out three and walked just one, didn't run into problems until the fifth inning.
Tanaka allowed runners on first and third with one out before allowing a Blake Swihart single to left center to plate a run. Then, a Jackie Bradley sac fly scored another run. Tanaka then allowed a solo home run to Pablo Sandoval in the sixth.
Tanaka, now 8-4, moved his ERA to 3.84 in 93 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Saturday against the Blue Jays.
|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.
