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
Robert Quinn is making progress from his back issue.
After missing Sunday's game, Quinn seems to be making steps toward's returning. Quinn is one of the game's elite pass rushers but has been slowed down by injuries all season long. Quinn is two years removed from a 19 sack season and the Rams are hoping he returns to that when he gets back on the field. Analysis: James Grande
Braves signed P Jim Johnson to a one-year deal.
After saving 50-plus games two consecutive years in Baltimore, Johnson has been a shell of that the past two seasons. He only has 12 saves combined over the past two seasons. He posted a 7.09 ERA in 2014 and a 4.46 ERA in 2015. The Braves are giving him one year to figure himself out or he'll likely have a hard time finding work. He can only hope his sinker starts sinking like it did in Baltimore. Analysis: James Grande
