The New York Yankees formally introduced pitcher Masahiro Tanaka on Tuesday, with general manager Brian Cashman saying “this is Yankee big, this is Steinbrenner big” during the televised portion of the press conference to fans who share those expectations. Manager Joe Girardi handed Tanaka his No. 19 jersey and cap. The 25-year-old Tanaka, who speaks limited English, stepped to the podium. “When I take the mound, I feel that I would like to win every single game,” Tanaka said through an interpreter.
