Yankees manager Joe Girardi said on Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017 (2/14/17) that Masahiro Tanaka is in line to be the team's Opening Day starter on April 2, 2017 (4/2/17) against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Just 10 minutes into his first news conference of the new season, Yankees manager Joe Girardi confirmed that he expects right-hander Masahiro Tanaka to serve as the Opening Day starter.
Spin: It would be the third consecutive Opening Day assignment for Tanaka, who was 14-4 with a 3.07 ERA in 31 starts last year, setting career highs in wins, innings (199 2/3), starts, strikeouts (165) and quality starts (19). "Our plan is for him to be the Opening Day starter," Girardi said. "You've got to see where he's at, but I don't really see him being not our Opening Day starter unless something was to arise that I wasn't expecting. He's been the guy that's made the starts and that's kind of our plan." Tanaka told reporters last week that he believes he is ahead of last year's schedule. He threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Monday at the Yankees' Minor League complex.
