TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees newcomer Masahiro Tanaka has finished up his first throwing session with the team.

Tanaka worked out Wednesday at the minor league part of the Yankees' spring training complex. Pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Tanaka "looked good" during a long toss session.

Tanaka recently signed a $155 million, seven-year contract and was introduced Tuesday at Yankee Stadium. He was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA last year while leading the Rakuten Golden Eagles to the Japan Series title.

It should be determined in the next couple days when the 25-year-old right-hander will throw off a mound.

Yankees pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report for spring training Friday.
