Pitcher Masahiro Tanaka went with his heart when de­cid­ing not to opt out of the fi­nal three sea­sons of his US$155-mil­lion, seven-year con­tract signed in Jan­uary 2014 with the New York Yankees. “We went into bat­tle with these guys, last year es­pe­cially,” Tanaka said Wed­nes­day through a trans­la­tor af­ter a bullpen ses­sion at the Yankees’ mi­nor league com­plex. “My thought was I want to go out and bat­tle with these guys again and try to re­ally get to where we want to get.” New York came within one game of reach­ing the World Se­ries last sea­son.
