New York Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka activated from DL to start vs”

Masahiro Tanaka was sharp in his return from the disabled list, pitching seven innings of three-run ball Tuesday against the Tigers.

After a day off to catch their breath, they blasted the playing-out-the-string Tigers, 13-4, at Comerica Park on a rare drama-free evening. Neither the arms or bats were able to come through with Detroit starter Matthew Boyd allowing seven runs on seven hits and a trio of BB over 2.1 frames while three relievers were charged with two runs apiece.

Tanaka, who was sidelined due to right shoulder inflammation, has battled elbow injuries over the last two years. But Tanaka had essentially described his condition as a classic, late summer exhausted arm. He was removed for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning with the Yankees up 11-1.

Joe Girardi flip-flopped Judge and Sanchez in the order, which worked out well. Judge's 37-game K streak was an Major League Baseball record for position players.

The Yankees drove Boyd from the game in the third.

Todd Frazier's two-run triple came during a four-run third inning, ending the night for Boyd, who gave up seven hits and three walks in 2.1 innings.

The under is 15-6-1 in New York last 22 road games and New York are 17-7 in their last 24 Wednesday games while New York are 7-1 in Severino's last 8 starts. So no, for the first time since July 7, he did not strike out. And following Brett Gardner's leadoff triple in the seventh, Aaron Hicks belted a two-run homer to right to open a 10-run lead.

In the seventh, Nick Castellanos hit a two-run shot off Tanaka to make it 11-3. But by then, the right-hander had settled any notions about how he'd respond from his "dead-arm" period.

Tanaka last pitched on August 9 in a poor outing against the Toronto Blue Jays.

"I feel good", Tanaka said through an interpreter. But the better Tanaka throws, the more likely the 28-year-old is to opt-out of his contract after the season, giving the Yankees a hard long-term decision to make in a potential bidding war. The Japan native walked a total of three batters in his previous six outings.

The better Tanaka (4.92 ERA in 133.2 IP) pitches down the stretch, the more likely the Yankees are to at least capture an AL Wild Card spot-if not comeback to win the AL East. Now, the only AL clubs that Tanaka has never defeated are Houston, Kansas City and Texas.
