New York Yankees

The latest on Masahiro Tanaka, from MLB.com's Bryan Hoch:

Masahiro Tanaka played catch again on Thursday at Yankee Stadium, tossing in the outfield at distances of 60 and 90 feet.

... Manager Joe Girardi said that Tanaka is scheduled to travel to Baltimore with the team next week, where he will continue his throwing program.

Girardi said that Tanaka's next step would be to increase his throwing distance to 120 feet. Bullpen sessions and Minor League rehab games would follow if Tanaka has no further issues.
