Prado Day-to-Day With Hamstring Strain

Yankees Utility Man Martin Prado will miss tonight's game against the Red Sox with a mild hamstring strain, team Manager Joe Girardi revealed earlier today.

“We’ll see how he is tomorrow, but right now he’s down,” Girardi said. “Our hope is it won’t be too long. We’ll have to see.”

Prado, who suffered the wound in last night's loss to the Red Sox, is currently listed as day-to-day. Besides him, Girardi also provided a positive update on RHP Masahiro Tanaka, the club's ace who could hold their playoff future in his hands. 

"Every manual test that they did came out really well," Girardi said. "They just said he had some arm fatigue and he is scheduled to throw a bullpen sometime this week. Hopefully, he is ready to do it."

Tanaka, a 25-year-old rookie who played in Japan last season, has not appeared since July 8's loss to Cleveland. In that outing, which lasted just 6 2/3 innings, Tanaka surrendered 5 earned runs, the only time he has done so this season.
