Player Notes
Masahiro Tanaka struggled in a losing effort against the Astros on Wednesday, allowing four runs on seven hits across five frames.

Advice: Tanaka walked two and struck out four on the evening. The Astros scratched out a run in the second inning, then broke the game open with three runs in the third, highlighted by a two-run blast off the bat of Colby Rasmus. Now 7-3 on the season, he'll bring a 3.16 ERA and 1.11 WHIP into Tuesday's start against the Mets at Citi Field.

Masahiro Tanaka spun six scoreless frames in a no-decision against the Giants on Friday.

Advice: Tanaka held the Giants to four hits (all of them singles) while walking a pair and striking out four. He was at 83 pitches after six innings, so he could have gone further, but Yankees manager Joe Girardi wanted to get to his three-headed bullpen monster. It didn’t pay off initially, as the Giants evened things up in the eighth inning, but the Yankees eventually took the lead back. Tanaka’s ERA now sits at an even 3.00 to go along with a 104/25 K/BB ratio in 129 innings. He has a date with the Astros up next.
