NEW YORK, N. Mitchell Trubisky Womens Jersey .Y. - Masahiro Tanaka threw 35 pitches Wednesday in his second bullpen session as he tries to return to the New York Yankees this season. The injured rookie from Japan threw fastballs, breaking balls and five splitters at Yankee Stadium. He said he felt a little rusty, but his elbow is healthy and now its just a matter of rebuilding arm strength and getting sharp. "It was a good day," Tanaka said through a translator. "The elbow is fine now. Im more looking towards playing in a game now. But that said, even that said, I think I do have to be cautious about the elbow." Tanaka went on the disabled list July 9 with a partial ligament tear in his right elbow and had a platelet-rich plasma injection. New York hopes he can avoid Tommy John surgery and return to the rotation next month. The right-hander threw 25 pitches in his first bullpen session last Saturday and might have another one before moving on to batting practice. After that, it would be a simulated game and then a rehab game. No more MRIs are planned. "So far, so good. I mean, every step has been positive for him and thats obviously the way we hope it continues to go. But each step, he increases intensity, and Im sure BPs will be a little bit more intense than bullpens," manager Joe Girardi said. "The fact that he felt good today was encouraging. See how he feels tomorrow, obviously, is really important, but he was able to throw his curveball, his slider and his split, and I watched it and it looked pretty good." Tanaka is 12-4 with a 2.51 ERA in 18 starts. New York began the day four games out of a playoff spot with 39 to play. In other news, slumping Carlos Beltran was out of the lineup against Houston because of discomfort in his troublesome right elbow, which has bothered him for much of the season. Beltran was scheduled to be examined by a doctor Wednesday evening. "Im not really sure what it means. Hopefully, its just a day or two," Girardi said. Derek Jeter was the designated hitter instead of Beltran, with Stephen Drew set to start at shortstop. Mitchell Trubisky Youth Jersey .

I am still kicking.Vickers will miss the first two Cup races as part of his recovery process, but has been given a clean bill of health to begin racing March 8 at Las Vegas. He will drive the No. 55 Aarons Toyota for Michael Waltrip Racing.Vickers said doctors told him that three months will be more than enough time for his chest to heal after they were forced to crack open his sternum on Dec. 15 to repair a hole in his heart for a second time.I feel great, said Vickers, a three-time Sprint Cup Series winner who had nine top-10 finishes last season and finished 22nd in the final standings.The December setback was the third major health scare for Vickers since 2010.Five years ago he underwent a pair of procedures — one to close a hole in his heart and another to insert a stent into a vein in his left leg. He missed 25 races during the 2010 season. He would miss an additional five races in 2013 after being placed on blood thinners to treat a blood clot in his right calf.Vickers said the latest procedure was the most traumatic and the toughest to recover from, calling it painful and extreme. He briefly contemplated retiring from racing.I have had to deal with a lot of these emotions and thoughts several times now, Vickers said. Could I ever race again and, if I could, would I want to? ... There was times where I was like, somebody is trying to tell me something.But Vickers said he is driven to win a Sprint Cup championship, and doesnt want tto look back later in life in regret passing up a chance to reach that goal.ddddddddddddVickers took over as a full-time driver for Michael Waltrip Racing last year after sharing a seat with Mark Martin in 2012 and most of 2013. His only win in 58 races with MWR came at New Hampshire in 2013.Vickers toughness has resonated with the man who writes his checks.Not a lot of people have gone through what that young man has gone through, Waltrip said. His determination and his desire to be a champion in the Sprint Cup series is something that motivates our whole team.Vickers latest heart issue came in December when he became ill on the way to a photo shoot. He wound up at Carolinas Medical Center where doctors rushed him into surgery to repair the hole in his heart after his body rejected his artificial patch that was initially used in 2010.At the time, the 31-year-old Vickers was told he may never race again.It was a pretty traumatic event going through that, Vickers said. It was the worst of all the medical procedures I have had to face.Through it all, Vickers hasnt lost his sense of humour.He sat on stage Tuesday joking with teammate Clint Bowyer about how doctors replaced his heart with that of a lion.Yeah, its way stronger, Bowyer cracked.Waltrip will fill in for Vickers at the Daytona 500, while Brett Moffitt will race the second week at Atlanta.After that, its all Vickers.He said he has been training feverishly to get healthy. He swam two miles in the pool over the weekend.Hes primarily focused on strengthening his chest.There was a lot of uncertainty going into the surgery, Vickers said. Unfortunately I have had to hear that youll never go racing again too many times in my life. But Ive been able to get past that.
