Manager Joe Girardi said Masahiro Tanaka will see Dr. Ahmad sometime later Thursday night. The Yankees should have a diagnosis to announce within 24 hours.
Fingers crossed. Get out the luck rabbit's foot. Place the horseshoe over the doorway. Whatever it takes to get word that Tanaka will be fine, do it. It would be a ridiculous shame to see the guy most likely to win the AL Cy Young while finishing second in the Rookie Of the Year voting to go down like this. A ridiculous shame.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Indians optioned P Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.
Tomlin has some upside if he can repeat his 8.13 K/9 from last season, but home runs will likely always be an issue. Tomlin has allowed 1.41 HR/9 over his big league career, far too high for him to be a consistent fantasy producer. He will almost certainly be in the rotation at some point and could even get the call up before Danny Salazar even though Salazar has far more upside for fantasy. Analysis: Steve Pimental
