The Yankees got their first in-game look at Masahiro Tanaka on Saturday, he worked two scoreless relief innings, gave up two hits, struck out three, walked none and recorded three fly-ball outs, none of them well-struck.
It is a well known adage that pitchers are ahead of hitters early in the spring, but the Yankees have to be encouraged by the performance of their high-priced free agent. If he keeps this up, expect his ADP to soar as March goes on.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
