Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka earns win Wednesday

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:17:39 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka (11-6) allowed four runs on six hits in 6 1/3 innings in a victory against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, Sept. 2, with one walk and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) was unable to record his sixth consecutive quality start after running into trouble during the sixth and seventh innings but still pitched well enough to get the win. His next start will come Tuesday, Sept. 8, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka delivers 10th win

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 05:18:19 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven batters over seven innings during the Yankees' 15-4 win Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: The Braves got to Tanaka ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) early and scored two runs in the first inning, so it was nice to see him bounce back and allow just a single run over his final six innings. This was a game he should have won, though, so his recent up-and-down run should still be viewed as in tact. Be careful with Tanaka's matchups, especially at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka mediocre in defeat

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 05:33:54 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka allowed four runs -- three earned -- on seven hits and one walk while striking out three hitters during the Yankees' 7-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) has allowed three earned runs or fewer in eight of his last nine starts and owns a 3.38 ERA with 47 strikeouts through 61 1/3 innings during the stretch. Pitching for a strong team with a top-tier bullpen helps Tanaka's fantasy value significantly. His strikeout totals are heading in the wrong direction, though, and it is debatable if he truly is 100% healthy. Be careful leaning too heavily on him in tough matchups in all fantasy formats going forward.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka goes the distance

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 18:01:58 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka threw his first complete game in more than a year, allowing one run on five hits and striking out eight in a win over the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) was mediocre in July, but it is tough to ignore back-to-back impressive outings against Toronto's powerful offense this month. Given his strikeout potential, he isnít the worse starter to take a chance on at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka bounces back

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 14:38:51 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka allowed two runs -- one earned -- on two hits and a walk while striking out six batters through 7 2/3 innings during the Yankees 6-2 win over the Oakland Athletics Thursday, July 9. Tanaka earned his fifth victory of the season in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) had a 7.88 ERA while allowing a .338/.373/.691 slash line over his previous three starts, so the outing was a welcomed return for fantasy owners. Tanaka has dealt with injuries each of the past two season, but when on the hill and healthy, he has proven to be an excellent fantasy option more often than not. Still, it wouldn't hurt being selective with when you utilize him at FantasyScore due to his recent tough run.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka in a tailspin

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 18:12:23 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka is set to face the Oakland Athletics Thursday, July 9, in the afternoon series finale at home. Over his past four starts he is 0-2 with a 6.26 ERA with 22 strikeouts over 23 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($8,500; or 17.0% of cap) has been helping FantasyScore owners with strikeouts, but he has been giving up a ton of runs. At this price he is a bit too risky.
