Summary NEW YORK -- New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday that Masahiro Tanaka , the ace of his pitching staff, is still feeling discomfort in his pitching elbow despite not having picked up a baseball since receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection 10 days ago. He was subsequently examined by Yankees team doctor Christopher Ahmad, Los Angeles Dodgers team doctor Neal elAttrache and elbow specialist Dr. James Andrews, all of whom recommended the Yankees attempt to rehabilitate Tanaka's injury with a PRP injection followed by a throwing program, rather than the more standard, and radical, course of action -- Tommy John surgery.
