Yankees P Tanaka exits with shin contusion

New York Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka exited Saturday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays after the sixth inning due to a right shin contusion.

On his 88th and final pitch, Tanaka had a ground ball by Yandy Diaz go off his lower leg. The ball was clocked at 111.3 mph by Statcast and it caromed off Tanaka’s leg to first baseman Luke Voit for the final out.

The Yankees announced in the seventh that X-Rays were negative.

Tanaka allowed three hits in six scoreless innings.

He is 3-3 with a 3.09 ERA in 10 starts this season.
