Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Saturday that the club hopes Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) will be ready to resume throwing off a mound on Thursday.
Tanaka is currently limited to a strengthening program due to "general soreness" in his pitching arm, but the Yanks seem convinced it's merely a minor setback. They're still holding out hope that he'll rejoin the rotation at some point next month. "He’ll play catch for the next five or six days," Girardi said. "Our hope is to get him on a mound Thursday. I still think there’s time to get him back if there are no more setbacks," Girardi added. "If there was to be another setback, obviously there would be a lot of concern." Aug 31 - 9:54 AM
