Masahiro Tanaka threw a 30-pitch bullpen this afternoon. He threw all of his pitches, said his forearm and wrist felt fine, and he’ll wait until tomorrow to decide what’s next in his return from a mild strain and light tendonitis. There’s a little bit of video above catching some of the final pitches from the session.

“Didn’t feel anything,” Tanaka said. “But just want to see how I feel tomorrow and make sure I’m OK. … I don’t feel I need to go back to what I’ve been doing in spring training. When I was on the mound, I felt good on there so I shouldn’t be too far from me coming back.”

Tanaka indicated that he expects to make at least rehab start, but he said he’s really not sure how many he’ll need, and he’s not sure when that process will start.

“I’ve got to see how I do in my first rehab start,” Tanaka said. “Probably get a feel for where I’m at once I throw that first start. Obviously I have to see how the coaches, manager, see how I do. It kind of all depends on that.”

Any plan to adjust which pitches he throws and how often he throws them in the wake of this latest injury?

“Never thought about that,” Tanaka said.
