FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Masahiro Tanaka will face hitters in live batting practice on Saturday.

Interesting that the Yankees have him facing live hitters after just a few session of throwing from flat ground. The eventual hope is that he'll be able to get at least one start in before the end of the regular season, but that seems pretty far off. He's not helping anyone in re-draft leagues this year. No one. ANALYST: Howard Bender
