Heads up: Tanaka set for season debut vs. Red Sox

One of the scariest moments of summer camp for the New York Yankees occurred during the first workout on July 4 when Masahiro Tanaka was hit in the head by Giancarlo Stanton’s line drive.

Four weeks later, Tanaka is ready to make his season debut. He will be on the mound Saturday night when the Yankees host the Boston Red Sox.

Tanaka was diagnosed with a mild concussion after Stanton’s 112 mph liner struck him on the right temple. After getting hit, Tanaka was motionless on the ground for about 10 minutes and sent to a nearby hospital.
