The New York Yankees First Quarter Report Card

Steady And Reliable Award:

Masahiro Tanaka (2-0, 3.24 ERA)

Tanaka has turned back into the ace that the Yankees gave a seven-year deal to prior to 2014.

He has shown flashes of the guy that started 11-1 in that 2014 season.Every fifth day, the Yanks can rely on him to be the guy. His 1.05 WHIP and mere 12 walks stand out as well.

The Yankees need him to be that consistent figure moving forward to keep an improving rotation under control.
