Masahiro Tanaka is going to pitch again on Saturday

Masahiro Tanaka feels good after his start yesterday and so the Yankees have him on track to start against the Red Sox on Saturday.

There were no guarantees he’d get a second start even if he felt OK, so this is a good sign. He allowed one run over five and a third innings while striking out four and walking none against the Blue Jays yesterday, throwing 70 pitches. He’ll get 85 pitches against the Sox.
