Masahiro Tanaka will not pitch for Japan in the World Baseball Classic.
"Taking various things into consideration, it would be difficult so I will not participate," Tanaka told the Associated Press. The Yankees apparently left it up to Tanaka as to whether he'd pitch for his native country, but they're surely relieved he's decided against it. Tanaka has been pitching with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow since at least July of 2014 and is coming off a season where he threw 199 2/3 innings. Jan 23 - 5:10 PM
