Just minutes after the Yankees opened spring training 2.0 in the Bronx on Saturday, Masahiro Tanaka suffered a frightening injury taking a straight line from the right side of his head off Giancarlo Stanton’s bat.

Tanaka immediately fell on the mound and the action stopped as the coaches rushed to watch him. He sat for about five minutes before sitting down. He was helped to get up and left the field with the help of two coaches.

The Yankees later announced that Tanaka was “alert, responsive and walking under his own power.” He is sent to New York-Presbyterian Hospital for further evaluation and testing.

The 31-year-old right-hander faced multiple batters as Saturday was the Yankees’ first official training session after players began reporting on Wednesday after the three-month layoff due to the COVID-19 pandemic followed by labor dispute between MLB and the players’ association.

YES Network reported that there was no net in front of the mound, as is usually the case in batting practice, as it is a simulated game. However, a net was released after the Tanaka incident.

Tanaka is entering the final year of a $ 155 million, seven-year contract.
