Update: With Masahiro Tanaka moving closer to a return, the Yankees are considering going with a six-man rotation at some point in September and could do it for the entire 2015 season

That was from Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild, who quickly followed it up with a We are going to look at every avenue possible. It doesnt mean we are going to do it. It was brought up as a potential way to keep Tanaka rested. Apparently in Japan, starters only throw once a week. At this stage of the game, if you're using a starter from the Yankees, you're not going to be too upset about maybe missing a start. It wouldn't be more than that.
