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 Mobile App
