Masahiro Tanaka Makes Rehab Start In AAA

Masahiro Tanaka made a rehab start for the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders this evening. He was scheduled to throw either three innings or 45 pitches, but Tanaka was able to get through three scoreless innings in just 41 pitches. Masahiro gave up only two hits, while striking out two, and walking none.

With his fastball sitting around 91mph, TanaKa also mixed in all of his pitches while not showing any ill effects in either his forearm or elbow.
"I felt pretty good out there. I was able to use all my pitches. I felt pretty good. … Not necessarily different than how I usually go into a game. I was looking to obviously pitch all my pitches with force, and I was able to do that tonight." - Tanaka
While I had read that Tanaka may only need the one rehab start, it looks like he'll get at least one more before returning to the Yankees.
