Masahiro Tanaka to work on improving mechanics

Masahiro Tanaka will apparently work on modifying his mechanics so that there's less strain on his body (something pitching coach Yoshinori Sato has also been echoing for quite some time).  Said Tanaka, "While it is important to maintain proper balance between the upper and lower body, I need to be more aware of how I use my upper body."  Tanaka also added that while it may seem as though he has worked on his upper body too much, it only looks that way because he doesn't have the type of lower body that bulks up very easily.
