Yankees SP Tanaka Throws First Bullpen Session Since Going on DL

Hannah Foslien/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- On Tuesday, New York Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka threw his first bullpen session since being placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm and tendonitis in his right wrist.

Tanaka threw 30 pitches and said he felt good when he was done.

"We'll wait to see how he does tomorrow before we decide exactly what's next, but obviously he's going to throw another bullpen," Yankees skipper Joe Girardi said. "The fact that he was able to do everything he wanted today would make you think he'd be fine. "

Tanaka has been on the DL since April 29. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the 26-year-old would miss at least a month. There is still no timetable for Tanaka's return.

Before going on the DL, Tanaka made four starts for the Yankees, throwing 22 1/3 innings with 24 strikeouts, seven walks, a 3.22 ERA, and a 0.94 WHIP.

Yankees Pineda Fans 16 in Win

Jared Wickerham/Getty Images

(NEW YORK) -- As the New York Yankees continue to surprise with a patchwork pitching rotation, a rebounding Michael Pineda was a huge boon for the team leading the AL East.

Pineda struck out 16 Orioles (13-16) and walked none in the Yankees' 6-2 victory. He struck out six straight when he fanned Alejandro De Aza to end the fourth inning and it was finalized when Delmon Young belted a double in the sixth.

"In the fourth inning, I finally go, 'Oh, this is going to be good,'" said Pineda.

Pineda tied David Wells and David Cone for the second best single game strikeout performance in Yankees history. Ron Guidry struck out 18 in 1978.

The Yankees (20-12) boast the sixth best team ERA in baseball, 3.30, and second best in the American League behind the Kansas City Royals. New York has been without Ivan Nova, who is on the disabled list, and Masahiro Tanaka, who is battling an ailing pitching arm.

Yankees Say They Won't Pay A-Rod Bonus for Hitting HR 660

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- The New York Yankees have no intention of paying Alex Rodriguez a $6 million bonus for tying Willie Mays for fourth place on the all-time home runs list.

According to multiple reports, Rodriguez was supposed to receive $6 million for reaching each of the following home run milestones: 660 (Willie Mays), 714 (Babe Ruth), 755 (Hank Aaron), 762 (Barry Bonds), and 763, which would make him the all-time home run champ.

"We have the right but not the obligation to do something, and that's it," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Saturday. "We're going to follow the contract as we follow all contracts, so there is no dispute, from our perspective."

That contract, according to the Yankees, states that Rodriguez would not earn the bonuses if the team could not market the achievement. The Yankees believe this can't be done because of Rodriguez's troubled past with his admitted usage of illegal PEDs.

Rodriguez has refrained from commenting on the issue publicly.

The 39-year-old has 14 days from the time the Yankees refuse to pay the bonus to file an appeal, according to baseball's collective bargaining agreement.

A-Rod Hits Home Run Number 660, Now Tied with Willie Mays

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Like it or not, New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez made history on Friday night when he hit his 660th career home run, tying him with Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list.

"I hit that one good," Rodriguez said. "Anytime you're sandwiched between Willie Mays and Babe Ruth, it's special. This whole thing has been kinda like a dream."

Rodriguez accomplished the feat against the Boston Red Sox, and broke a 2-all tie in the eighth inning.

Amazingly enough, it was the first pinch hit home run of Rodriguez' career.

Congratulations to Alex Rodriguez on his 660th home run," Mays said in a statement. "Milestones in baseball are meant to be broken and I wish him continued success throughout his career."

What makes the accomplishment even more interesting is that the Yankees are reward Rodriguez with a $6 million bonus, which they are objecting to paying because the home run is tainted.

Rodriguez has used performance enhancing drugs multiple times during his career, and was suspended for the entire 2014 season for his role in the Biogenesis scandal.

Masahiro Tanaka Headed to 15-Day DL

Hannah Foslien/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Yankees placed pitcher Masahiro Tanka on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday.

Tanaka will be out at least a month with right wrist tendinitis and a mildly strained forearm, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman announced Tuesday.

"We want to make sure this does not lead to more horrific problems," Cashman said at a news conference.

Tanaka missed 10 weeks last season due to a small tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and was aware of the injury. Still, he doesn't think his elbow led to further health issues.

"I went out and played light catch on that day, which was yesterday. I woke up this morning and felt it a little more than the day before, so that's why I went over to Steve [Donohue], our trainer, and told him about it," Tanaka said through a translator. "Personally, I don't think that it has anything to do with my elbow."

Tanaka was 2-1 with a 3.22 ERA and had 24 strikeouts.
