TAMPA, Fla. (AP) New York Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka has gotten through his first mound session since October elbow surgery problem-free.

Tanaka reported no issues Sunday to Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild one day after a 20-pitch session at Steinbrenner Field. He had the arthroscopic procedure to remove a bone spur from his right elbow.

"He didn't try to push it too much, but it was good," Rothschild said. "He wasn't mid-season form, but he was where he should be. His arm worked well. Didn't look like there were any problems. Today he felt good, which was more important."
