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
Jarrell Eddie will sign a 10-day contract with the Hawks on Thursday.
The undrafted free agent out of Virginia Tech, Jarrell Eddie won the D-League's Three-Point Shootout during the All-Star weekend, and will now be given the opportunity to log his first minute in the NBA with the Atlanta Hawks. The team had one vacant roster spot, so no one is being sent to the Developmental League as a result of this signing. We'll have to see what the Hawks' have in mind for their new three-point threat.
