FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: YANKS SP MASAHIRO TANAKA (TORN UCL) THROWS LONG TOSS SESSION

                                         

New York Yankees ace SP Masahiro Tanaka threw a successful long toss session Tuesday in his first spring training work of 2015.  Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said that everything went well and that Tanaka will be on a normal spring schedule like every other pitcher.  He will continue to pitch with a slight tear in the UCL of his elbow.

Analysis:  As much as we love Tanaka and his ace power ability, there is no way we would draft him as anything more than out third starter.  It is only a matter of time before Tanaka will need Tommy John surgery like in the case of Adam Wainwright who held off on the surgery for two years before finally going under the knife.  Too much risk to deal with as one of your top two starters.
