Tanaka to debut on Saturday

Per Chad Jennings of Lohud:

Masahiro Tanaka will make his Yankees spring training debut on Saturday. But he won’t be starting.

 

CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda and Tanaka will all pitch in Saturday’s game against the Phillies. Sabathia will be the starter. All three will be expected to go two innings or 35 pitches.

 

After Saturday, those three will be separated, with Tanaka occasionally getting extra rest along the way.

Saturday’s game will be broadcast on YES and on MLB Network.
