TanakaMasahiro Tanaka will fly to Seattle to visit Yankees team physician Dr. Chris Ahmad. There’s no definite word on when he’ll fly out there, but it will happen soon, possibly tomorrow.

Seems odd that Tanaka, not Dr. Ahmad, would be the one to fly across the country, but Dr. Ahmad is at a conference with the top orthopedic surgeons in the world. The Yankees feel that can take advantage of that, be proactive, and put Tanaka in a place where any necessary expert — depending on what Dr. Ahmad finds — will be available to check on him.

“They’re in a huge conference,” Joe Girardi said.
