Masahiro Tanaka Has Successful Elbow Surgery

The New York Yankees announced that Masahiro Tanaka has had successful elbow surgery this week, no it's not Tommy John surgery. Tanaka had a bone spur removed from his right elbow that stemmed back, reportedly, from his days in Japan and has nothing (did you see that, NOTHING) to do with his partially torn ulnar collateral ligament he suffered in 2014.

The recovery time for the surgery is six weeks plus a throwing program so Tanaka shouldn't have any issues being ready before Spring Training 2016.
