Tanaka To Pitch Monday In Minor League Game

Masahiro Tanaka has one more hurdle to clear before heading back to the Yankee Stadium mound and that is to pitch in a minor league game. Tanaka is slated to pitch in a minor league game on Monday at the Yankees minor league complex in Tampa, FL.

Tanaka threw 45 pitches yesterday with no complaints of soreness or fatigue and will throw a bullpen session on Friday in preparation for the start on Monday. The Yankees may activate Tanaka before next weekend if this start goes well.

The Yankees absolutely need Tanaka to pitch this season to learn if he needs the Tommy John surgery now or later so this is a big start for Tanaka and the Yankees.
