Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Will start Game 2 of ALDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka has been confirmed as Saturday's starting pitcher against Boston in Game 2 of the ALDS, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

With J.A. Happ getting the nod in Game 1, Tanaka will toe the rubber in Boston on Saturday. He's coming off a rough couple of outings to end the 2018 regular season (eight runs allowed over eight innings) and figures to have his hands full against an elite Red Sox starting nine.

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Dominates over eight innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka (11-5) tossed eight shutout innings in the win over the Mariners on Friday. He allowed only three hits (no walks) and stuck out 10.

Tanaka was very efficient in the dominant performance, as he needed only 102 pitches to complete the eight frames. The 10 strikeouts were a season-high, and he's now pitched at least six innings in five straight starts. He lowered his ERA to 3.61 in the process, and he holds a 144:32 K:BB over 142 innings this season. He'll look to keep things rolling in his next start, currently slated for Wednesday against the Twins.

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

Tanaka allowed one run on four hits and one walk across six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Marlins. He struck out four.

Tanaka allowed just three runners past first base and was only scored upon via a solo home run from Austin Dean in the fifth inning. Unfortunately, his team could't muster more offensive support, which extended his current streak to four starts without a win. Nevertheless, Tanaka threw 67 percent of his pitches for strikes and needed just 82 to work through six frames. He's now posted a shiny 10:1 K:BB across 12 innings while delivering back-to-back quality starts and will take a 3.90 ERA into this weekend's matchup with the Orioles.

Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka: Strikes out nine in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka allowed one earned run on six hits and a walk while striking out nine across 4.2 innings Sunday against the Red Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

Tanaka struck out nine batters for the third time this season but couldn't work efficiently enough to escape the fifth inning. He uncharacteristically failed to consistently find the strike zone -- he began only six of the 21 batters he faced with a strike -- and the Red Sox fouled off 20 of his offerings, both of which played a part in his short outing. However, the only run he allowed came on a solo home run by Mookie Betts -- a problem that has plagued Tanaka all season, illustrated by his 1.66 HR/9. That hasn't stopped him from providing value, however, highlighted by a 1.07 WHIP and 109 strikeouts across 103 innings.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanaka (9-2) earned the win against the Orioles on Tuesday, recording eight strikeouts and allowing three hits and two walks over six scoreless innings.

Tanaka hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts (15 innings), giving up only six hits and three walks. The 29-year now has a 3.84 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 100:25 K:BB across 98.1 innings, and will hope to continue this stellar stretch at Boston on Sunday.
