Tanaka's two-seamer not fast enough as Yankees fall to Mets


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/25/2015) After not allowing a run in his first two spring starts, Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka was touched for three runs (two earned) on four hits while striking out seven in 4 2/3 innings against the Mets on Wednesday.

Tanaka gave up a home run to Mets left fielder John Mayberry in the fourth inning.

Tanaka has been working on a two-seam fastball this spring which has resulted in a lower velocity.

“The reason I’m not throwing much is that a lot of the four-seamers have been hit last year during the regular season,” Tanaka said. “So I’m doing this on purpose, I’m working on the two-seamers purposely.”

While Tanaka said he’s basically throwing all two-seam fastballs this spring, he still intends to use his four-seamer during the regular season.

“I think there’s room for both [fastballs],” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Mets GM Sandy Alderson delves into reasons for 'quiet' offseason


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2015) While the Mets have been linked to trade rumors involving Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond, the team has had a relatively quiet offseason. The Mets' top signings have been Michael Cuddyer and John Mayberry Jr.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson did his best Monday to explain why the team hasn't been overly active this offseason.

"We expect to take the next step forward as well," Alderson said on MLB Network on Monday, per NJ.com. We won 79 games last year, which was an improvement over the year before but we need to take a bigger jump next season. One of the reasons we've been quiet in the offseason is that we have quality players at every position. They're not all proven above-average major league players, but we're at the point now where we have to give them an opportunity to perform.

"We've got players with the potential to improve us by 10 games, which is what we need. So we're comfortable going into spring training and excited actually to see those players and see what kind of step forward they take and whether that can translate into 10 or 12 games for us in the win column."
