The latest on Masahiro Tanaka, from the Daily News' Mark Feinsand:

Masahiro Tanaka will take his next step toward a potential return, getting on top of a mound Saturday for the first time since suffering a partial ligament tear in his elbow more than a month ago.

Tanaka is slated to throw 25 fastballs in his first mound work since July 8, the night he made his last start before landing on the disabled list. Tanaka has been playing long toss since Aug. 4 and advanced his rehab earlier this week when he threw 10 fastballs on flat ground.
