Masahiro Tanaka, who didn’t throw off a mound on Friday, spent a dozen minutes playing catch in the outfield, stretching the distance to 120 feet. Tanaka then threw seven pitches using the windup. It’s possible Tanaka will throw off a mound Saturday or Sunday.

How he feels throwing off the mound is going to be key in determining whether or not he'll pitch again this year. He's been playing catch for the last two weeks and has gradually increased the distance. Coming out of the wind-up even at half speed will be a much better indicator.
