Masahiro Tanaka Gets His First Workout In With Yankees


Newest Yankee Masahiro Tanaka arrived for a workout Thursday morning dressed in a gray Yankee T-shirt, navy Yankee shorts and toting a Yanks’ duffel bag while throwing 23 pitches off a bullpen mound.

When Tanaka emerged from a white Nissan Pathfinder SUV at 9:03 a.m., a group of autograph seekers waiting outside the complex cheered him.

The Yankees signed Tanaka to a seven-year, $155-million contract to help their rotation.
