Tuesday: Tanaka will make his first minor league rehab start with Triple-A Scranton on Thursday, the Yankees announced. The RailRiders will be at home playing Durham (Rays) that night. There’s no word on how many pitches or innings Tanaka is scheduled to throw yet. All of his bullpen sessions have been around 30 pitches, so perhaps he’ll throw three innings and 45 pitches Thursday. We’ll see. Tanaka told reporters he is scheduled to throw 45 pitches Thursday.

Monday: Earlier today, Masahiro Tanaka threw a 29-pitch bullpen session at Nationals Park, the Yankees announced. The Yankees have an off-day today and open a quick little two-game series with the Nats tomorrow. Today’s bullpen session was scheduled and is Tanaka’s third as he works his way back from a wrist and forearm issue.

“We just felt that it would be good for him to throw one more, because he hasn’t thrown in a while. We’ll make sure he’s sharp, then he’ll go down and make a rehab start,” said Joe Girardi to Mark Feinsand over the weekend, following Tanaka’s second bullpen session. Apparently Girardi and pitching coach Larry Rothschild mentioned Thursday as a possible rehab start date if today’s bullpen session went well, which it did by all indications.

Both Triple-A Scranton and Double-A Trenton are home Thursday, making them the likely destinations for the rehab start. Unlike Chris Capuano, who basically had to go through an entire Spring Training, Tanaka only needs a tune-up and could make just one or two rehab starts. Not four or five like Capuano, who was pitching in Extended Spring Training for a few weeks before joining one of the minor league clubs.

“I think you have to see where he’s at and how many pitches he gets to (in the first start). The one thing you don’t want is to have to be in a situation where he can only give you three or four innings,” said Girardi to Feinsand. Obviously the Yankees will play it safe with Tanaka, but everyone has insisted the injury was minor from the start, so his rehab could be quick. The Yankees could use him as soon as possible, that’s for sure.

    BUTButbut, wrist connected to fore arm connected to elbow which is in his head. We were basically guaranteed that doom was upon us. Last time I trust random people on the internets (except that nice young man who needs help getting his millions out of Nigeria and the other one who promises I can have a bigger penis. Those seem legit).

      Listen, my dad was a doctor Bro. I know what I’m talking about. He’s selfish for not getting the surgery.

      • Scott

        My dad was a bus driver. He said he knows a guy, who’s cousin is related to OBGYN and she said get the surgery. NUFF SAID.

        • Y’s Guy

          As he misses more time, and if he goes on the dl again this year, this may well end up in surgery. I’m not saying someone made a bad decision but the economics of it are beginning to tilt (with his contract in the balance no less). If they end up getting little out of him, then he needs the surgery anyway in order to keep pitching, questions will have to be asked about how much to weigh the economics.

    • Scott

      Totally legit, also the American guy who is stuck in London but lost his passport, help him out too. He will send you $25K when you give him $100 to get his passport.

  • DeutschlandNY

    Looks like the elbow in the head pandemic has a cure!

  • HoopDreams

    The entire Yankees bullpen is crammed in his head, however they removed Carpenter rather easily

  • yankinvegas

    I feel bad for Whitley who has worked to get here and has not made the big $$$ yet.
    At least he got hurt while in the bigs. Being on the DL he still a rues service time and get the daily per dime when the team is on the road. That was decided in an arbitration decision for Albert Belle when he was with Baltimore. And Whitley will still get his cut of the licensing pie. He will be moved to the 60 day DL, then reinstated to the 40 man after the World Series, and the moved back to the 60 day right before opening day 2016.
    Now, hopefully the Yankees will use his spot on the 40 to summon Lindgren. The pen is down to only Miller and Betances in crucial spots.
    We still have to find a spot on the 40 man for Nova soon. And hopefully we will dump somebody and get Refsnyder here. If Hal and Levine don’t realize that Drew sucks, then they just don’t care about winning. Maybe Cash can convince them. And if Ref’s D is really awful, put Drew in late in games.
    The team desperately needs another bat. Give Ref the shot for a month. If he doesn’t work out, it’s still only July 1 and then make a deal for a 2b. It is not my job to decide who to get but I would suggest Daniel Murphy who I think is done with the Mets.

    • Leftballer

      Whitley spot will be reserved for Nova.

      I doubt they were going to call up German just to put him on the 60 day d.l… plus Tracy wasn’t getting D.F.A’d either.

      Daniel Murphy ? I don’t think the Yankees match up for a trade with the mets.

      • http://shhhorsie.com Cheval Anonyme

        Hmmm… who do you suppose they would have dropped for Nova if Whitley had NOT been hurt? Whoever that is, could now be dropped for Refsnyder.

        • Leftballer

          Here would be the options.

          1)German would have be optioned up & transferred to the 60 day D.L ( most realistic but would only happen in a emergency situation).

          2) Esmil Rogers/Chris Martin would have to be released (not happening for a position player in season.

          • yankinvegas

            The calling up German move is a great ideal. The Yanks open up a badly needed roster spot and the player gets a bump in salary to the MLB minimum, accrues service time and other benefits.
            Are we smart enough to do it? I know that Duquette and Showalter would do it.

            • Scott

              Why do you want said player to gain salary, and service time? Duquette and Showalter are not the deciding factor for making decisions.

          • yankinvegas

            Doing the German move would be really heady.
            That’s why it probably won’t happen.

            • Leftballer

              It’s not cost effective or smart roster planning.

              I went on Baseball reference just to see if the Yankees had a guy who wasn’t a major league Veteran OR Rule V guy who was on the 40 man roster & didn’t play in one game in the majors that season.

              I gave up digging as far back as 2006.

              Point is its something they just don’t do.

    • Barzini

      If they’re going to call up Refsnyder, they should feel that he is ready to stick in the big leagues. Bringing guys up before they’ve developed all of the tools needed to do that is a dangerous game, and a great way to destroy a promising young player’s confidence. I’m not saying that he isn’t ready. He may or may not be – only the Yankees can really know at this point. All I’m saying is that the “give him a shot for a month and if he doesn’t work out, then….” strategy is not the right way to go about it.

    • dave_8

      Murphy will be an interesting bat to acquire for most teams down the stretch — but I think that’s a deadline move. And I don’t think he’s a fit for the current Yankees. If you lost Beltran and Jones — and A-Rod slumped, maybe.

  • Pkyankfan69

    Through 62 games in my season of RBI Baseball Didi is 3rd in baseball in OPS (behind only Arod and Gardner)… He’s slashing .462/.468/.802/1.272… Just a few more K’s (20) then HR’s (15)… There is hope!

  • captainmike

    excellent article how how pitchers like Tanaka are likely to need TJ surgery at some point

    http://www.si.com/mlb/2015/05/19/tommy-john-dan-jennings-clayton-kershaw

    • Y’s Guy

      It was interesting, even though the headline was completely misleading and unsupported.

  • yankeefeminista

    Yeah, I doubt they will let Tanaka go more than 3 innings. I’ll be at Trenton watching TBD pitch; too bad it won’t be Tanaka, but at least Bundy will be doing a rehab start for O’s with Bowie that night. Sure hope Judge is back soon (tonight will be the second game in a row that he’s missed)

    • Scott

      Did they say something was wrong with Judge?

      • yankeefeminista

        As per Nick Peruffo: Pedrique says Judge isn’t in lineup bc of upper leg tightness he felt in BP #Yankees

        • Scott

          NOOOOO. Hope it isn’t a serious issue. That dude is raking and I was/am hoping to see him in AAA by the AS break.

          • yankeefeminista

            He supposedly took BP, so it was obviously a game time decision….

            • Some Asshole

              Sounds like just a night of rest is needed. He needs the surgery.

              • yankeefeminista

                Hopefully, he’ll have had three days after tonight. He looked fine when I saw him live on Saturday but it was a rainy nasty night and there was a long delay before the game resumed, so maybe that was a factor (or not…??)

                • Some Asshole

                  I envy your ability to watch his games.

    • vicki

      i’ll be at trenton thursday night too, section 110. do you drink beer? i’ll buy you a beer.

      • yankeefeminista

        Sounds good. Not sure when I’m arriving, but I’ll look for you once there.

  • Dalek Jeter

    3/45 Thursday, 4/60 a week from today, 5/75 on the 31st, 6/90-100 on June 6th, then maybe he comes back on the 11th or the next time out on the 15th?

    • Looser Trader FotD™

      I think if 5/75 goes well they’ll bring him up for the June 6th 90-100 start.

      • Dalek Jeter

        Idk, they’ve treated him with kid gloves, I think he’s gonna go 6/9-100 at least once in the minors.

        • Looser Trader FotD™

          Certainly possible. I think it depends primarily on how he feels, but also on how badly we need him back at that time.

  • Some Asshole

    Rehab!? That just makes injuries worse. Get eth surgery!!!

  • Looser Trader FotD™

    Giddyup. Welcome back #ace. Feel no pain.

    BTW KC was a total blast. Fantastic seats for cheap, great BBQ dives around town, great (if oddly quiet even when full) stadium experience, and friendly folk.

    • Scott

      Lived near KC for a year. Like that city a lot. Great stadium and you are right, friendly folk. I never felt “threatened” wearing my Yanks gear to the stadium.

      • Y’s Guy

        I lived out there and went to games for 7 seasons starting with the I-70 series, great place to watch a game and KC is great for eating and drinking.

        • Scott

          LOVE the restaurants out there. Jack Stack Bbq was my favorite but there are plenty of other great eateries around there.

      • Looser Trader FotD™

        Yeah their idea of razzing us was shouting quietly about how we made it in the playoffs last year, what Pineda had on his neck, etc. They would get eaten alive in Philly.

    • RetroRob

      I’ve been to a game in KC twice, once before they remodeled years back and once more recently after. Great place to see a game. Enjoyed both games. I didn’t identify myself with any Yankees gear, although I never do that, although whenever I’m in “enemy” territory I have a tendency to talk to the fans around me and I do let them know I’m a Yankees fan. I’ve never had an issue, people are always nice, even when I’ve been in Fenway, although that is very rare. More ribbing depending on how the game is going. The only time I’ve had fan issues (extremely rare) has been at Yankee Stadium from fans of other teams who seem to think they need to be obnoxious when visiting.

      • Looser Trader FotD™

        Agree. Another thing I’ve noticed is that NY fans seem to have a bad reputation. Certainly undeserved in my experience.

  • RetroRob

    If he’s at 45 pitches first start on Thursday, there will be two more rehab starts, probably increasing 15-20 pitches per start. That lines him up to return on Friday, June 5th vs. the Angels if they have him on a five man rotation schedule. If they go a little slower, meaning a six man rotation schedule, he could return Tuesday, June 9th vs. the Nats. Both home games.

  • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

    Looks like a straight platoon is here with Didi and Drew/Pirela.
    There’s no reason to keep Didi as a platoon player.
    What team would be interested in the “high ceiling” he offers?
    With Drew at SS fulltime, let Refs and Pirela battle it out.

    • Scott

      Joe is sure as hell giving Drew every opportunity to break out of his slump. Or he is giving him every opportunity to bury himself on the bench as a defensive replacement by 1 June. Not sure which one I want more. I suppose Drew hitting would be better.

      • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

        If I had to bet on where Drew would be a better hitter, I would say a steady diet of SS would help. It would also improve the defense. Refs is being groomed for 2B so he will have to play there sooner or later.

      • Deep Thoughts

        He is walking (~11%) and driving the ball. His BABIP before tonight was .190. They must believe that it’s due to regress and some hits will fall in. Playing some games at home with the short porch probably can’t hurt either. If they’re going to nuke him I don’t see it happening before the next long homestand.

    • RetroRob

      They committed to playing Pirela anytime a lefty is on the mound, and they’ve mixed him against some righties too to keep him fresh. Yet when there’s a lefty on the mound, either Drew or Didi will sit. As Scott says below, I think for now they’re going to play Drew to give him every chance to fail because eventually if he doesn’t start showing something he is the one who will lose his starting job. They’ll either call up Refsnyder (at which point Pirela goes back to the minors), or they will make another trade.

      BTW Dark horse 2B’man come July? Martin Prado returns mid year if the Nats continue to suck, and the Yankees decide Refsynder’s glove is just not MLB ready. I’ll give it a 20% chance, not based on anything.

      • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

        I do not think they got Didi to platoon at SS.
        If Pirela can play 2b, so can Refs.
        I can see another ‘rigged” battle at 2b between them.

        • RetroRob

          They didn’t get Didi to platoon him, but that doesn’t mean they won’t for a period of time, especially as he struggles.

          I don’t quite get your point two. Not all poor defenders are created equally. Refsnyder is regarded as a worse defender than Pirela. Much of that may just be on repetition at the position. Obviously the hopes are that the more Refsnyder plays he’ll reach an acceptable level in the field.

          I actually expect Refsnyder to eventually “win” the 2B job because there really is no competition for it. That’s the problem that I keep coming back around to. The Yankees may not have an acceptable 2B’man anywhere from AA and above.

          • Dalek Jeter

            It’s years and years away, but I think when Mateo and Wade both come to AAA if they both look like they can hit enough to play in the bigs I think they’ll turn one over to the 2B side of the bag. (if one of them isn’t traded or bust before then)

            • RetroRob

              Yup. I originally wrote they may not have an acceptable 2B’man anywhere in the system, but that’s not true. They are loaded with middle-infield talent at the lower levels who will push their way up. The only reason Culver keeps rising another level every year is because he’s an acceptable fielder and they have no one else. Yet Culver’s time is coming to an end because he’ll have legitimate competition.

              I know it sounds like I keep bashing Refsnyder and Pirela, but’s it’s more counter reaction to the overreaction to their skills without recognizing their weaknesses. In Pirela’s case he’s not a starter. Accept him for what he is. A platoon/bench player. I like Refsnyder a lot. I’m just concerned his glove is never going to cut it, or it might take another year or two to reach that. If that’s the case, the Yankees need another solution. They can’t be depending any of these guys right now. They know that. I’m sure they’re getting regular reports on Refsnyder daily. Hoping. Praying.

              • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

                If that’s the case why not think of Refs as the 4th OF.
                Young can be traded.

                • RetroRob

                  I think Refs if a future major leaguer. As much as I’m hesitant on his glove so far, I actually think his hitting is better than advertised. I’m not scout, so opinion is no different than anyone else’s, but it’s important to find the right position for him. That’s why continuing to play him at 2B is right for now.

                  • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

                    He may never make the conversion to 2B.
                    Is he then doomed to fail here?
                    If Beltran wasn’t the RF, wouldn’t he be up right now?

                • dave_8

                  If Refs gets called up, he’ll play every game for a while. Personally I don’t think he’ll stick at 2b. And I’d be curious to see what his bat might fetch (along with more ) in a deal.

              • Dalek Jeter

                I’m with you 100%. I’m for Refs being the 2B tomorrow if he can play at least slightly below average defense. On the other hand, if he’s a butcher in the field and he’s still trying to figure that out WHILE trying to make the adjustment to every pitcher he sees having at least two pitches they can get him out with it’s almost guaranteed that you’re setting him up to fail.

                • RetroRob

                  If I turned on the TV tonight, or came here to RAB and saw the Yankees had called up Refsnyder I’d be very happy. Nervous when he’s in the field until I see him more, but excited. It’s like when Montero first came up. I was hoping they were wrong about his glove, but after seeing him a few games I remember thinking, oh man, he’s as bad as advertised. I don’t want that to be Refsnyder.

                  • Dalek Jeter

                    I remember during a ST chat I asked Mike something to the effect of “I haven’t caught a lot of games, has Refs looked as bad as advertised defensively,” and within 30 seconds he responded with “somehow worse.”

                    • vicki

                      i don’t know what happened. he looked to have improved significantly by the end of last season. i saw him play live for a series in pawtucket and thought “he’s clearly worked out the defensive kinks.” (same weekend i thought “pirela is a AAAA DH, period.”) maybe he read too many scouting reports.

                    • Dalek Jeter

                      Could’ve just been the pressure of playing in big league camp?

                    • RetroRob

                      Strangely, I think I remember that exchange. As much as I want Refsnyder to make it, his defense is my fear.

                  • dave_8

                    He might be like Montero in another way too. Maybe he’s trade bait. If they think he can’t stick at 2b (internally, I mean), why not? Some scouts called him “a bat without a glove”.

                    • Dalek Jeter

                      He’ a RF who moved in to add value to his bat, worst case scenario is he’s a RF in our org or tradebait for another who thinks they can work out the defensive kinks.

                    • dave_8

                      He also moved b/c he wasn’t a good RF.

          • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

            What is the worst that could happen if Refs comes up sooner rather than later and how much later are we talking about? They likely will be in the hunt thru Sept so are they gonna bring him up in the thick of that? Wait till next year? Do you really think there will be that drastic an improvement. He already has admitted how uptight he feels, you saw the article where he says he’s done trying to be perfect out there right? If this kid is ready to hit in the bigs I say get his ass up here and let him hit, one way or another , by any means necessary. They (Girardi) downplay hitting, that’s common knowledge. They won’t win without it.

            • RetroRob

              The worst that can happen? Don’t want to think about it. : -)

              • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

                So you mean to say Refs will fail only b/c of his glove?
                If they needed an OFer he would have been here already. They know he can hit. Look at all the hype Montero got. They have basically been quiet with this kid, they aren’t looking to trade him.

                • RetroRob

                  I think they will play him as a subpar defensive player. They won’t if he’s much worse.

      • Dalek Jeter

        +1. In my most recent The Show franchise I decided to start Refs right out of ST. Broke his foot on opening day…so (without forced trades) I traded Capuano and either Shreve or Ramirez to get Prado back.

    • yankeefeminista

      Hoping for soon. Sounds like Nova is feeling no pain, and progressimg nicely. What was last report? I’m on vacation and didn’t see the update. I know last “start” he threw both FB and breaking balls, but no changeups because of a dearth of lefties.

      • MTU

        He’s on target YF. No issues.
        He should be back sometime in June.
        Enjoy your Vacation.

        • yankeefeminista

          Yeah, sounds like he is. Hopefully, we have both him and Tank back in full force soon! Thanks; I’m having a great time, but the wifi here is shady, so I will hope I am able to pull game in. I tried to convince the fam to go on vacation to DC for Yanks and the Seattle day game in Baltimore afterwards, but no one but me wanted to do the drive. :( But at least I’ll see the Bernie retirement game in the Bronx Sunday night. Hope you and yours are well!

    • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

      Can’t help but think we’re the favorites with a ro of Tanaka, Pineda, Nova, CC and Eovaldi. Their length will heal the pen with Warren in it.

      • MTU

        It’s Studly to say the least.
        And the Pen will be Super Studly when it has been Tweaked.

        • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

          Any great pen should have 3 back end guys , look at KC.
          Warren would complete the triumvirate. After that its a longman and a lefty.

        • Y’s Guy

          Tanaka’s not here, Nova’s not here, Warren’s not in the pen right now. If that happens, I’ll be happy but until then, I’m not counting on anything.

                They are just being overcautious w Masahiro.

                • Y’s Guy

                  At what point of ‘cautiousness’ will it become too costly to continue not having the problem taken care of? I mean it’s not like they’re trying to save him arm for his post-baseball dart-throwing career, it’s all about the baseball.

            Good Nova is exciting; how long had he been pitching with the arm fraying? Love to see me the Nova with the filthy CB and all those other pitches when he’s executing in plus mode.

            • MTU

              People forget how good he can be.

        Killer Haiku.

        • Robinson Tilapia

          May want to consult the Google there a second, MTU.

          Love,
          Your friendly neighborhood slightly younger person

          • MTU

            I’ll never get Haiku right.
            :(

            • Robinson Tilapia

              No, I mean look up the song he quoted. Early 90’s. :)

              • MTU

                Roger.

            • yankeefeminista

              I liked that you called it a haiku. Poetic license … in spite of the syllable restriction and it actually being an Oasis song.

              • MTU

                Thanks for picking me up.

                • yankeefeminista

                  No problem

  • MTU

    All of our Pitchers should be sent to Dr. Purita to drink of the Fountain of Youth.
    Just ask Bartolo.

    • Dalek Jeter

      If by “drink from the fountain of youth” you mean “have some cocktail of chemicals along with some bull stem cells injected into your shoulder” then yes, Bartolo agrees with you ;)

  • YankeesJunkie

    All hail Tanaka!!!

  • MTU

    And get me a little more O please.

    • Dalek Jeter

      Honestly the only place I see them upgrading is 2nd. With his hot start to May (whether it be real or a dead cat bounce) Beltran bought himself through the end of the year if he didn’t already have that. The rest of the team is under contract through next season at least, so I doubt they’re going anywhere….My prediction is Cashman buys low on Zobrist at the deadline if the A’s aren’t in it…for somebody like Mitchell or DeCarr if he doesn’t think Refsnyder is ready to play 2B daily.

      • MTU

        2b looks like the place. Maybe SS ?

        • yankeefeminista

          At least they have Pirela in tonight. Another pitcher in there with no Alex in the lineup would not be optimum.

        • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

          2b or not 2b that is the question…..

          • MTU

            And is it in the Stars ?
            The who and the wither.
            Or some such sh*t.

      • Robinson Tilapia

        Or the current guys could just get hot again?

        • MTU

          For the rest of the season.

          • Robinson Tilapia

            For enough of it?

            • MTU

              That would be the most efficient way.

        • Dalek Jeter

          Eh, I know I’ve been wrong before ( I was hoping on the Beltran’s cooked bandwagon right behind you), but I don’t think we’re gonna get much of anything out of Drew just ever, I don’t think Pirela’s got a good enough bat or glove to stick in the line up everyday, and if Refs was ready defensively I think he’d be here….so short of Refs I don’t see many internal options that prevent the team from attempting to upgrade at 2nd. Plus, Zobrist is like a rich man’s Prado…he can play all over the field.

          • Robinson Tilapia

            Oh, I meant the rest of the lineup.

  • Robinson Tilapia

    Next stop: Total domination.

    • Dalek Jeter

      I don’t know why I thought this but this was my first thought https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYvAYwpUDv8

      • Robinson Tilapia

        I 100% approve.

      • vicki

        any PATB reference is a good PATB reference.

    • MTU

      It just isn’t fair but ask me if I care. :)

  • MTU

    Make me feel good and wipe the floor w the Nats in their home stadium in front of their
    adoring fans.
    Also, will make Bryce yearn to be a Yankee even more.

    No pressure in this “series”, the most we can lose is 2. With no DH we’re playing with house money.

    • Robinson Tilapia

      Hey, it could go really bad and Washington could win three.

      • http://riveraveblues.com/ Mick

        Yeah. We can lose 2 and still have a good series.

    • Y’s Guy

      It matters when the best teams get together. The Yankees just lost 2/3 to the defending league champs, losing 2 in DC on top of that would suck and make alot wonder whether the Yankees are on those team’s levels.
      There are no ‘must wins’ in May, but I’d sure hate to see them lose both of these.

  • MTU

    Enjoy the Game Folks.
    Continue your progression Nathan.

    Welcome back Tanaka-san. Glad to see you again.
