Masahiro Tanaka believes it is possible to finish the season with a 24-0 record during his first season with the New York Yankees.
Tanaka has struck out 35 while walking two in his first four big league starts.
"Honestly, it's hard to say. But the percentage I would say is not zero percent," Tanaka told ESPNNewYork.com through his translator, Shingo Horie. "I say this because I go on the mound to try to beat the other team every single time. ... So I don't want to look at it as something that's impossible to do.
"If there's a possibility, I want to go towards that. ... Every time I take the mound, I try to win. So that's what I'm trying to do. And I fully understand how difficult of a task (24-0) would be."
