Yankees P Masahiro Tanaka exits with shin contusion

New York Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka exited Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays after the sixth inning due to a right shin contusion.

On his 88th and final pitch, Tanaka had a ground ball by Yandy Diaz go off his lower leg. The ball was clocked at 111.3 mph by Statcast™ and it caromed off Tanaka's leg to first baseman Luke Voit for the final out.

The Yankees announced in the seventh that X-Rays were negative.

Tanaka allowed three hits in six scoreless innings.

He is 3-3 with a 3.09 ERA in 10 starts this season.
