Tanaka throws two scoreless innings vs Phillies


Off to a great start this spring is Masahiro Tanaka as he threw two scoreless innings today against the Phillies, which was his first start of the year. There has been some concern about whether or not Tanaka will be ready for Opening Day after undergoing offseason surgery on his right elbow to remove bone spur. The Yankees should be feeling a little more confident about him being ready after witnessing a pain free and smooth outing from their ace today.

Tanaka used only 15 pitches to get through two innings on Sunday. He struck out two, walked one, and allowed two hits in his outing.

When asked about being ready for Opening Day, Tanaka stated "That's basically the goal. That's what I'm trying to do."

It has not yet been announced when Tanaka will make his next spring start.
