The Yankees will complete a three-game series at Houston on April 3 before having a day off and then heading to Toronto for a new three-game set. Thus, Tanaka will make his MLB debut against a young Astros’ lineup or a veteran-landed Blue Jays’ offense that has potential, even though it didn’t materialize for Toronto last season.

“I think that’s pretty safe to say,” Joe Girardi said about the Japanese right-hander will start game three or four.

Tanaka is set to make his first spring training appearance on Saturday against the Phillies.

In an unrelated occurrence, the Yankees’ 2014 World Series odds have dropped according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv. The Yankees were 10/1 to win the Fall Classic early in the week but are now listed at 12/1. The Bronx Bombers are also 13/2 to win the American League pennant in 2014 and +225 on the money line to win the American League East.

The Yankees’ over/under total for the regular season has been set at 86.5 wins.
