Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Triumphs over White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka (6-7) tossed six solid innings against the White Sox on Wednesday, striking out five while allowing two runs on six hits and two walks in a 12-3 victory.

Don't look now, but Tanaka's turned in three strong efforts over his last four starts, posting an impressive 32:7 K:BB and 2.92 ERA over 24.2 innings in that span. Crucially, after a nine-start stretch in which he gave up a ridiculous 18 homers, Tanaka has kept the ball in the yard over his last two outings. Continuing to do that will be a huge key to success for the Japanese righty, whose underlying stats are otherwise promising.

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Fires eight shutout innings Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka (5-7) allowed no runs on three hits and two walks while striking out nine across eight innings, but received no-decision Friday against the Rangers.

Tanaka was unable to get any run support and his outstanding effort was unable to notch him a victory. He's been very up-and-down over his last seven outings, and his 5.74 ERA makes him very hard to trust in fantasy lineups, but he has exceptional upside, and that cannot be ignored. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the White Sox.

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Drops to 5-7 with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka (5-7) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out 10 batters over four innings during Saturday's loss to Oakland.

The 10 strikeouts salvaged some fantasy value from the otherwise dreadful outing, and Tanaka now owns a disastrous 6.34 ERA and 1.49 WHIP for the year. He also allowed three homers Saturday to inflate his HR/9 to 2.5 for the campaign, and his 5.65 FIP suggests Tanaka's struggles are legitimate. He's a risky start until proven otherwise, and a daunting matchup against the Rangers is on deck at hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium.

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Quality start in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka was charged with three runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks over 6.2 innings in a no-decision Monday against the Angels. He struck out eight batters.

The extra rest between starts seemed to do Tanaka well, as he was mostly excellent outside of a first-inning homer surrendered to Kole Calhoun. Of course, the Mike Trout-less Angels don't exactly field the most daunting lineup. Tanaka has been maddeningly inconsistent lately -- he hasn't put together consecutive quality starts since the end of April -- so owners in shallower leagues may want to think twice before jumping back in with both feet.

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Start pushed back to Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka will start the series opener against the Angels on Monday instead of his scheduled spot Sunday, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

It is no surprise that Tanaka's start was pushed back as this has been an option of Manager Joe Girardi's for the past few days. In light of his recent struggles, Tanaka will not throw against the Orioles, a team that recently roughed him up for seven earned runs in late May. The Yankees may consider to take more extreme measures if he continues his recent form, but for the time being it appears as though the club will either give Chad Green or Bryan Mitchell the start Sunday, or promote Chance Adams from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to the 40-man roster for his first big-league start.
