Masahiro Tanaka has a partially torn ligament in his throwing arm but doctors did not recommend surgery. If rest and rehab go well he could be back on the mound in six weeks.

Oh, man. The year of the pitching curse has reared its ugly head once again. At a minimum, Tanaka will be out until early September. The problem here is that we all know how this is going to end. Brace yourselves to be Tanaka-less until after next year's All-Star break. He is going to attempt rest, but with his UCL already partially-torn, it is basically inevitable that he will need Tommy John surgery. The fantasy baseball gods can be so cruel sometimes.
