Tanaka plays catch, feels good after throwing for first time since injury

Tanaka was sweaty and smiling after 50-pitch game of catch. Told me he felt good and no pain. First of many steps.

— Sweeny Murti (@YankeesWFAN) August 4, 2014

Manager Joe Girardi will meet with the media at approximately 4 p.m. ET, at which point he will surely discuss Tanaka’s throwing session and the next step in his rehab process.

Tanaka, 25, suffered the ligament tear the week before the All-Star break. He was examined by three doctors and all three agreed the tear was small enough that he should rehab the injury rather than undergo Tommy John surgery.

Tanaka can’t be back until September at the earliest, so the Yankees’ postseason fate may be decided before he plays in another game, but if the rehab is really working and he’s able to avoid the knife, this is great news for their 2015 team - and more importantly, great news for baseball fans who get to see a heck of a pitcher.
