For now, at least, Yankees can win without Masahiro Tanaka

Judging by the way Masahiro Tanaka's rehab program is dissected on a daily basis, you would think the Yankees' playoff hopes hinge on his return. In reality, though, one has little to do with the other, as Hiroki Kuroda showed us with his superb -- and ultimately wasted -- performance in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Tigers at Comerica Park.

Postgame notes: “I was able to physically get refreshed”

The schedule won’t let the Yankees give Hiroki Kuroda six days off before every start down the stretch, but they were able to give him that many this time, and it seemed to make a difference.

Notes: Kuroda was out, but now he's back

BALTIMORE -- When the Yankees sent out their pitching probables for this coming weekend's series in St. Petersburg against the Rays, one name was conspicuously absent: Hiroki Kuroda.
