DETROIT - New York Yankees star Masahiro Tanaka threw 49 pitches in a simulated game Thursday and did not report any unusual pain as he recovers from a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament.

The Japanese right-hander is 12-4 with a 2.51 ERA in his first season in the majors, but he hasn't pitched since July 8.

Manager Joe Girardi says Tanaka didn't shy away from any of his pitches Thursday, and Tanaka said any soreness he felt was normal for a session like this.

Tanaka said through an interpreter that it's easy to tell the difference between pain from his injury and more normal soreness.

The Yankees have used 12 starting pitchers this season, their highest total since 2008, when they used 13.
