UPDATES & NEWS
Masahiro Tanaka said he identified an issue in his mechanics from his first start and will try to correct it in his next start on Wednesday.
Tanaka got off to a bit of a shaky start in his first outing as he gave up a solo shot to Melky Cabrera, the first batter he faced. He allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits with no walks and eight strikeouts over seven innings, so if there's a mechanical flaw that he's now identified, you should probably be pretty excited about his next time on the hill.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
