Masahiro Tanaka To Pitch 3rd or 4th Game In 2014

According to Yankees manager Joe Girardi the Yankees will push Masahiro Tanaka back until the third or fourth game of the regular season, probably the third. This should come as no surprise as the Yankees will have CC Sabathia starting on Opening Day against the Houston Astros followed by Hiroki Kuroda. The Yankees would be wise to let Tanaka get his feet wet against a Houston Astros team in Game 3 with their anemic offense rather then allowing him to pitch the fourth game of the season against the Toronto Blue Jays. It's really a no brainer but it is still worth mentioning, the longer the AL East has to wait to see Tanaka the better in my opinion.
