Masahiro Tanaka says he is ‘all good’ after ball to head

Masahiro Tanaka provided some reassuring news on Saturday evening.

Tanaka was hit in the head by a Giancarlo Stanton line drive during a simulated game earlier in the day. The New York Yankees pitcher was alert and taken to a nearby hospital for testing.

All the tests turned out well, including a CT scan.

Tanaka later sent a note via Twitter to assure his fans that he was “all good” and trying to get back to pitching as soon as possible.

The 31-year-old will be placed in MLB’s concussion protocol.

Tanaka went 11-9 with a 4.45 ERA last season and made his second All-Star team.
