Masahiro Tanaka to Miss Next Start w/ Injury

And the absolute worst possible timing for injuries continues to happen to the New York Yankees.

Masahiro Tanaka tried to lay down a bunt in his last start against the New York Mets and felt something pull in his hamstring. Tanaka was sent for an MRI after complaining about it in the Yankees dugout and a Grade I strain was found in the scan. Tanaka was able to pitch five more innings and pitched well before being pinch hit for and asked to pitch Wednesday against the Toronto Blue Jays. Joe Girardi, naturally, wants to play it safe and will instead start Ivan Nova on Wednesday against the Toronto Blue Jays instead of Tanaka.
