Tanaka Not Progressing

Things are not getting any better for Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka, who is said to still be feeling pain in his right elbow on a daily basis.

Tanaka, who has been sidelined since just before the all-star break, has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) and has been trying to avoid Tommy John Surgery by rehabbing.

“He’s improved, but he still feels it on a daily basis,” General manager Brian Cashman said to Michael Kay on his radio show. “It’s not good that he’s still feeling it at this stage. (But we’ll just) go day by day, week by week and adjust accordingly.

Tanaka received an injection on July 14th and still has not attempted to throw yet. He won’t do that for at least another two weeks, and according to this article, he won’t be back until September, if at all.

In other Yankees news, Michael Pineda has progressed to the point where he is ready to throw 30 pitches tomorrow over two simulated innings.
