    Masahiro Tanaka once again has been cleared by the New York Yankees' team doctor to rev up his throwing program in an effort to return this season from the slightly torn ligament in his pitching elbow.

    Tanaka, out for nearly two months, played catch Tuesday and reported no problems, according to manager Joe Girardi.

    He will throw a bullpen session later in the week, though Girardi declined to reveal which day it would occur. With less than four weeks left in the regular season, the Yankees are trying to see if Tanaka can pitch again for them this season.

    Tanaka announced last Friday that he had "general soreness" in his right arm, halting his throwing program. He said at the time he wanted to be cautious.
