Masahiro Tanaka will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

These bullpen sessions are all about rebuilding Tanaka's stamina, so it is likely that they increase his pitch count which was at 25 during last Friday's session. While they want to push forward here, the club is going to have to be extremely cautious so not to further damage the UCL. The Yankees could just be spinning their wheels here as this could be all for naught. They are taking a big gamble here trying to get him ready for post-season that may never arrive and while yes, they invested a huge sum of money in him, sometimes you have to cut your losses in the immediate to build for a better future. The longer they delay the surgery, the further off it will be before they get him back.
