Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka looked sharp Sunday in his first start since July 8, scattering five hits over 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball in a 5-2 win over the visiting Blue Jays. He struck out four batters, did not issue a walk, and only went to one three-ball count all afternoon.

Tanaka has been out since July 8 with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, but he’ll make his return Sunday against the Blue Jays.

Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka stepped back on a mound Saturday for the first time since a bout of arm fatigue shut down his rehab program. He’s trying to avoid surgery for a partially-torn UCL in his right elbow.
Sep 4, 2014, 4:46 PM EST
Tanaka was shut down in mid-July, but rather than immediately go under the knife and begin the 12-month (or longer) recovery process he’s hoping rest and rehab will do the trick.
