From Marc Carig:
The Yankees placed starting pitcher Ivan Nova on the disabled list today, the team announced, when an MRI exam discovered inflammation in his right rotator cuff.

Nova will not play catch for at least five days. After visiting with team physician Christopher Ahmad in New York, Nova will be prescribed medicine and rest.

Placing Nova on the DL also clears a roster spot for ace lefty CC Sabathia, who is expected to be activated for Friday's series opener against the Indians.
This also allows the struggling Joba Chamberlain to stay on the active roster, which I believe is a mistake. David Phelps will also remain in the rotation until Nova returns.

Nova May Miss Next Start

I am a big fan of Nova but the Yankees need a lot more from him especially at this time of year, and also...

Thoughts On The Uganda Little League World Series Story

Leave it to the Little League World Series to take my mind off a Yankees team who dropped their second straight game to White Sox last night. The loss and Ivan Nova's continuing troubles have been easily relegated to the back burner of my mind, because history was made in Williamsport yesterday. As you probably know, the team from Uganda became the first African team to win a...

The Francessa Rant: Music To A Yankee Fan's Ears

The Yankees have not played well over the past 30 days. The 10-game lead they had over the Tampa Bay Rays has been reduced to just 2 and 1/2 games. They are in danger of losing the lead entirely and, as a result, facing the possibility of having to play in Death Game 2012, my term for the one-game playoff. Brutal, right? Well, not if you're a Mets fan.The Mets just got swept...
