Tonight, the Yankees' splashiest off-season acquisition, Masahiro Tanaka, improved his record to 6-0 with a four-hit shutout against the Mets at Citi Field, striking out eight.

It was Tanaka's first complete game in the majors. While pitching in Japan for Tohoku Golden Eagles from 2007-13, Tanaka amassed 53 CG.

A quick look at Tanaka's QMAX numbers thus far: 3.63 "S", 1.75 "C"/5.48 "T", with only two games in the top hit prevention region (25% of his starts). Not overpowering, but mighty effective nonetheless...
