Is Masahiro Tanaka holding back?

TAMPA, Fla. -- For New York Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka, the key to success has never been speed, but trajectory. The secret for him in Japan and for the first half of his first big-league season was never how fast the ball got the plate, but how quickly it dove to the ground. The violent downward movement on his split-fingered fastball, set up by his pedestrian fastball made him a frustrating at-bat for major league hitters in his first U.S. season.

Mets 7, Yankees 2: Rafael Montero has earned roster spot

TAMPA, Fla. -- New York Mets manager Terry Collins offered little doubt Wednesday after Rafael Montero's solid outing in a 7-2 win against the New York Yankees: The 24-year-old right-hander is likely to be part of the Opening Day roster, and equally likely to be pitching in relief. Juan Lagares and John Mayberry Jr. homered and Montero allowed one run in four innings as the Mets completed a spring-training sweep of their crosstown rivals before an announced crowd of 10,787 at George M.

Masahiro Tanaka focusing on two-seam fastballs this season

Masahiro Tanaka’s velocity is down this spring, but that might not be a matter of a diminished fastball, it might simply be a different fastball. Tanaka said today that he’s been throwing basically nothing but two-seamers since camp opened. “The reason I’m not throwing much is that a lot of the four-seamers have been hit […] The post Masahiro Tanaka focusing on two-seam fastballs this season appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.
