Tanaka Experiencing Arm Soreness; Still Hopeful He Can Return

In an event that could prove to be disastrous in how the Yankees' season plays out, injured team ace Masahiro Tanaka is experiencing "general arm soreness."

According to YES Network's Jack Curry, Tanaka will now head back to New York to do strengthening exercises, an unfortunate necessity that apparently hasn't killed the rookie's spirit. 

"We still have a whole month," Tanaka said earlier today, via the NYDN's Mark Feinsand. "I'm going to do my best to get back."

Prior to this sudden and discouraging news, Tanaka threw alright in a 49-pitch simulated game at Comerica Park, definitely making this announcement scary.

No, Tanaka didn't look perfect in yesterday's rehab appearance, but since he still didn't report any serious problems after it you can't help but get put down by this development, as it essentially adds one more worry to the front office's already-long list.
