Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Continues to give up home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka gave up four runs on seven hits and zero walks while striking out six in six innings Saturday in Seattle.

He continues to give up home runs at an alarming rate, serving up a pair of long balls in this one, which gives him 26 home runs allowed over 115.2 innings this season. Not only does this represent a new career-worst mark for Tanaka, but to put it in perspective, he gave up 22 home runs in 199.2 innings last year and gave up 25 home runs in 154 innings in 2015. If he can just cut back on the round-trippers, the rest of the package appears to be there for Tanaka. His next start comes Friday at home against the Rays.

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Takes loss despite quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka allowed three earned runs over 7.2 innings in Sunday night's loss to the Red Sox. He allowed eight hits and posted a 9:0 K:BB in the game.

Tanaka was effective Sunday after getting hit around in his final start before the All-Star break, but he still took the loss for the third straight start. He will have a chance to break that streak his next time out against a Mariners team he has gone 5-0 against since making his major league debut in 2014.

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Shelled by Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka gave up five runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five in 4.1 innings against the Brewers on Sunday.

Just as Tanaka was getting back in his owner's good graces (three straight quality starts), he had one of his worst starts of the first half, which is saying something. His 103 strikeouts places him in the top-25 among big-league pitchers in the first half, but his 5.47 ERA and 1.37 WHIP have negated the positive value his strikeouts and seven wins provide. That said, his 3.88 xFIP gives hope for better days ahead.

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Continues resurgence with win over Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka (7-7) thew seven innings of one-run ball in Monday's win over the Blue Jays, allowing five hits and one walk with eight strikeouts.

Tanaka was sharp in this one, throwing first-pitch strikes to 20 of 27 batters and inducing a whopping 21 swinging strikes. He was strong throughout the game and was only scored upon in the seventh inning after a hit batsman and a throwing error from Gary Sanchez put a man on third base. Tanaka endured some miserable outings in May and June that bloated his ERA up to 6.34 at one point, but he has rattled off three straight quality starts in which he has allowed just three earned runs over 21 innings to bring that figure back down. He finally appears to be hitting his stride and will look to build on his recent success Sunday against the Brewers.

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.
