— Player Notes
Advice: Tanaka struck out two on the day and didn't issue a walk, throwing 41 pitches in his three frames. Going only three innings in this one, he's likely to need another rehab start before being ready to rejoin the Yankees rotation. Before hitting the disabled list, he posted a 3.22 ERA and 24/7 K/BB ratio over his 22 1/3 innings.

Advice: Tanaka was cleared for game action after throwing 29 pitches in a bullpen session Monday without discomfort in his forearm or wrist. It's unclear if he'll need more than one outing before being activated from the disabled list. Tanaka had a 3.22 ERA and 24/7 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings over four starts before landing on the DL last month.

Advice: Tanaka threw 29 pitches in a bullpen session Monday at Nationals Park, his third since going on the disabled list about a month ago with a right forearm strain and right wrist tendinitis. It's unclear whether he'll require more than one rehab start, but he appears on track for a return around the end of the month if all goes well.

Advice: There's talk that he might be cleared to make a minor league rehab start later this week at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Tanaka has been out since April 23 because of a right forearm strain and right wrist tendinitis. And he's also still got a partially-torn ligament in his right elbow. It's tough to know what to expect from the 26-year-old going forward. He had a 3.22 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 24/7 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings (four starts) this season before landing on the disabled list.

Advice: Tanaka will throw a bullpen session Monday and if all goes well, he'll get the green light to begin rehabbing. The 26-year-old hasn't started a game since April 23 due to a right forearm strain. Since starting last season 12-4 with a 2.51 ERA, Tanaka has gone 3-2 with a 3.99 ERA over his last six outings. He still has that partially-torn ligament in his right elbow.

Advice: Tanaka threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session Tuesday without issue, a good sign for the right-hander. If Friday's session goes equally as well, Tanaka could be looking at a rehab assignment next week. On that timetable, the 26-year-old could be back with the club by the end of the month.

Advice: It was his first time throwing off a mound since being diagnosed with a forearm forearm strain and right wrist tendinitis late last month. The Yankees will likely see how he feels Wednesday before deciding on the next step. We wouldn't expect to see him return until late May at the earliest.
