Player Notes
Masahiro Tanaka got a no-decision after limiting the Tigers to one run over 6 1/3 innings in the Yankees' win on Thursday.

Advice: Tanaka had everyone in the Tigers' lineup, except J.D. Martinez, fooled on Thursday. Martinez doubled twice, accounting for two of the three hits Tanaka allowed. But the Tigers' only run came in the first inning when Victor Martinez brought in Anthony Gose on a sacrifice fly. Along with allowing only three hits, Tanaka walked two and struck out six. He'll head into next week's home start against the Rays with a 3.22 ERA, a 0.94 WHIP, and a 24/7 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings.

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.
