Player Notes
Masahiro Tanaka tossed seven shutout innings while striking out eight in Saturday's 9-0 win over the Rays.

Advice: For the first time this season, Tanaka looked like his old self. He gave up just two hits and did not walk a batter, throwing just 85 pitches in seven innings before letting the Yankee bullpen finish off the win. As has been well-documented and thoroughly, thoroughly discussed in the New York media, Tanaka is trying to pitch with a partially torn ligament in his right elbow. While Saturday's was by far the most encouraging start we've seen from the ace, it's still not clear what Tanaka's numbers will look like over the course of a long season. In this case, the cliché "one game at a time" might actually be apt. At the very least, his beautifully efficient outing against the Rays is a sign that not every start will be of the four-run, five-inning variety. He'll face the Tigers in his next outing.

Masahiro Tanaka wasn't at his best on Sunday but still picked up a victory over the Red Sox, allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits over his five innings of work.

Advice: Tanaka struck out four and walked three on the night. The Yankees did the heavy lifting, staking him to a 7-0 advantage after the first inning, and it was cruise control after that for the right-hander. He'll head into Saturday's matchup against the Rays in Tampa with a 7.00 ERA and 10/5 K/BB ratio through his first nine innings.
