Mesosoro Tanacha

Masahiro Tanaka hit the DL with a strained forearm. It's not related to his partially torn ulnar collateral ligament. So, here's my question? Why not just play through the forearm strain too? That's where he draws the line? It's like, "I was fine sleeping with my wife's sister, and having a baby with her that no one knows about, and plotting to kill my wife on a weekend jaunt...
