Around the Empire: Yankees news - 9/9/15

Tanaka wants to pitch in a wild-card game, Girardi is comfortable with Betances' workload, and more.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports | Brendan Kuty: Despite the Yankees taking the loss, Masahiro Tanaka tossed a gem last night. Tanaka said that he really wants to pitch in a possible wild-card game, as he should.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: The Yankees may have had a lot of pitching injuries this season, but Joe Girardi said he is comfortable with Dellin Betances' massive workload. | Ryan Hatch: In case you're unaware, the Yankees bullpen is really good. In fact, if the Yankees hold the lead after the sixth inning, it's very hard to beat them. A new video was released on Yankees On Demand, showing the decision that new draftees have to make after being drafted: to go pro, or go to college.

ESPN New York | Associated Press: As if the many games against the Toronto Blue Jays isn't challenging enough, the Yankees will face Marcus Stroman on Saturday in his return from a torn ACL. Lucky us.
