Yankees still hopeful Masahiro Tanaka returns
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Even though Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka didn't exactly dominate in an instructional league game Monday and hinted afterward that he may not be ready to face major-league hitters with the stuff he showed, pitching coach Larry Rothschild told Newsday that the 25-year-old could still start this weekend if he says he feels good Tuesday.

Tanaka, who is attempting to rehabilitate a partially torn UCL, allowed six hits while striking out four in five innings. His fastball topped out at 92 mph.

Masahiro Tanaka struggles to put away minor-leaguers
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, who is attempting to rehabilitate a partially torn UCL, technically pitched five scoreless innings in an instructional league game Monday, but according to LoHud.com, he didn't look good doing it.

Facing mostly teenagers, he allowed six hits, including several on hard-hit balls, and struck out four. His fastball topped out at 92 mph, giving him some doubt about whether he's ready to face major-leaguers.

"I don't know," he said. "It's hard to say."

Tanaka threw 65 pitches in all and, for his struggles, said he felt good. The Yankees had hoped he could return for this weekend's series at Toronto.

Masahiro Tanaka to throw instructional league game Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka is scheduled to throw an instructional league game Monday, MLB.com reports.

Tanaka felt good Wednesday after throwing 45 pitches in a simulated game one day earlier. He has continued to feel improvement in his injured elbow and could return to action late next week. Tanaka, who has been sidelined since July 8, is 12-4 with a 2.51 ERA and 135:19 K:BB ratio in his first major-league season.

Masahiro Tanaka eyeing start in series late next week
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka could return from the disabled list to pitch in the Sept. 19-21 series against visiting Toronto, per the New York Daily News.

Tanaka, who has been out for two months with an elbow injury, is set to throw Wednesday. If he emerges from that session feeling well, he will pitch a simulated or instructional league game Sunday. That would lead to one or two starts with the Yankees to conclude the regular season.

Masahiro Tanaka throws simulated game Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka completed three innings and threw 45 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

"Definitely, I was throwing stronger, harder than in Detroit," Tanaka said through an interpreter. "[I was] a bit concerned just because of what happened in Detroit, but when I was throwing, it was completely different -- a different feel than what I was feeling in Detroit vs. today, so I think I'll be OK tomorrow."

Tanaka reported that he continues to feel improvement in his pitching elbow. The team will have him throw a bullpen session before getting him some more game action, either in another simulated game or in the instructional league. Manager Joe Girardi intends to have Tanaka make at least one start before the end of the season.
