Masahiro Tanaka limited the Orioles to two runs over seven innings, striking out eight, in a win Thursday. Tanaka served up a pair of solo homers among eight hits allowed, but those were really the only blemishes in what was a pretty good night otherwise. [...]
Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka won on Thursday after allowing two runs on eight hits (two homers) and two walks with eight strikeouts in seven innings against Baltimore.
Spin: Tanaka (12-11, 4.73 ERA) was staked to a 6-0 lead before he even took the mound. It was a nice bounce-back outing for the right-hander, who gave up seven runs against the Rangers in his last start on Sept. 8. Tanaka still had issues with the long ball in this one, as he's now allowed 32 homers in 165 2/3 innings on the year (1.7 HR/9). That hinders his fantasy value for the stretch run. Tanaka will start next on Sept. 20 at home against Minnesota.
In his fifth season with the Nippon Ham Fighters, the reigning Pacific League MVP is prized as both a pitcher and hitter. But under restrictions in MLB's new collective bargaining agreement, his signing bonus would be limited to about $3 million to $4 million, a fraction of the $155 million, seven-year deal that pitcher Masahiro Tanaka received from the New York Yankees before the 2014 season. Otani would have to wait until after the 2019 season to receive a comparable deal in MLB.
