The New York Yankees have placed starter Ivan Nova on the 15-day disabled list. The team announced Thursday that Nova is suffering from rotator cuff inflammation and could possibly return in September. Nova, 25, is 11-7 with a 4.92 ERA this season. However, the right-hander is just 2-5 in his last seven decisions, struggling to find his rhythm since the All-Star break. In the first half of the season, Nova posted a 10-3 record with a 3.92 ERA, including a 1.26 ERA in five starts in the month of June. Since the All-Star break, something has been off with Nova, as he is 1-4 with a 7.28 ERA. Replacing Nova in the rotation will be ace C.C. Sabathia, who is just returning from the disabled list. Along with Nova, lefty starter Andy Pettitte remains on the disabled list with an ankle injury and is also expected back in September.

Suzuki adds a spark to Yankees

The Yankees traded for Ichiro Suzuki one month ago, rolling the dice that the 10-time All-Star would catch a second wind with a move from the last-place Seattle Mariners to first-place New York.
