New York Yankees
The latest on Masahiro Tanaka, from ESPN's Wallace Matthews:
... Speaking on ESPN New York 98.7 FM's "The Michael Kay Show," Cashman gave the following update on Tanaka: "He's improved, but he still feels it, although on a daily basis it decreases. So that's good but it's not good that he's still feeling it at this stage. So it's just day-by-day, week-by-week and we'll adjust accordingly. It's too early to call."
... Cashman defended the decision to forego surgery -- which entails a full year of recovery time -- on the basis that Tanaka might not be the same pitcher afterward.
"We get directed by what our medical experts say," Cashman said. "It was a unanimous decision and none of them recommended surgery. There's no guarantee that Tanaka if he has the surgery will be back to what he was."
