Tanaka, sidelined since getting hurt June 8 while running the bases in a game, threw before Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay.
”I was kind of being a little bit cautious about it,” Tanaka said through a translator. ”But it turned out that I didn’t feel anything.”
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tanaka will throw off a mound again Tuesday at New York’s spring training complex in Tampa. That lines Tanaka up to pitch in a simulated game Friday.
”Went well,” Boone said. ”Encouraging sign. It looks like he’s doing well.”
Tanaka is 7-2 with a 4.58 ERA in 13 starts.
”The arm strength is still there,” Tanaka said. ”Was able to really throw with some force on it.”
Tanaka could rejoin the Yankees, who have the majors’ best record Shareef Miller Jersey , before the All-Star break next month.
We take for granted the Super Bowl. The NFL. It's players, the plays, its merchandise we wear. The fact that every Sunday (and now every Thursday and Monday) we have something to plop into our schedules. However, in the scope of American history, it wasn't that long ago the NFL and really, the Super Bowl, was a complete mess. Some would even argue the NFL is still a complete mess http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/zach-brown-jersey-authentic , it's just dealing with its issues under different and less publicly scrutinized circumstances than before.The National Football League has come a long way to make both its sport and grandest game into a gold mine. The league has proven it's almost bullet proof. Would kryptonite take down the NFL? Probably not. Since the NFL was founded on August 20, 1920 and merged with the AFL (American Football League) in 1966, it's as popular to Americans as soccer is to the rest of the world. The only thing that could take down the NFL is, well, itself.However, it hasn't been without its bumps and bruises, some of which we've seen in its most recent Super Bowls. We've taking some liberties with this article to also include a few in-game moments we feel were either disastrous for a franchise or had a major effect on the NFL as it slowly built its empire. We also include a couple of NFL Championship games for fun since we're pretty talking about the same league.Weather http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-isaiah-johnson-jersey , traffic, seating, rogue performers. We're sure the Super Bowl committee discusses these potential problems prior to the big game. But when the issues happen and then persist, it leaves everyone wondering whether the NFL had any logical plan in place to save face. At times we're talking more about what went wrong, than the actual game itself.
