Quick hit: Tanaka to start Wednesday, Heathcott to 15-day DL

From Bryan Hoch:

Masahiro Tanaka will be activated from the disabled list to start on Wednesday against the Mariners in Seattle, manager Joe Girardi said.

 

Slade Heathcott has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 strain of his right quadriceps and will be placed on the disabled list. Ramon Flores will join the Yankees Saturday from Triple-A.

Girardi told reporters that Tanaka's pitch limit is around 80. He also said that Heathcott may be out a while, maybe for as long as a month. His injury is similar to the one Chris Capuano suffered earlier this season.
