New York Yankees

The latest on Masahiro Tanaka, from NorthJersey.com's Brian A. Giuffra:

Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka is on track to start on Sunday as he makes his way back from a slightly torn ligament in his right elbow. Tanaka threw a 32-pitch bullpen session on Thursday and reported no issues.

"So far so good," Girardi said. "He threw a bullpen and I didn't get a report, so that's always a good thing. Our plan is for him to start Sunday, and if he doesn't pitch Sunday we know something's up."
