Yankees | Brian McCann impressed with Masahiro Tanaka

New York Yankees C Brian McCann, who has caught SP Masahiro Tanaka in one bullpen session, said the pitcher is worthy of all the hype. The team plans to pair them up, and they'll work together for the first time Thursday, March 6.

"Before you saw him pitch, you heard what he has and what people say about him," McCann said. "Then you get to catch him and it is as good as advertised. His stuff really is electric. He can command both sides of the plate to both righties and lefties. He can change speeds. He has five or six different pitches. Everything that you read about, the highlights that we saw before he came over here, they are all accurate."
