Yankees have placed Ivan Nova on the 15-day DL, retroactive to August 22, with right rotator cuff inflammation. Let’s hope a little R&R can get Nova back on track and looking more like the pitcher that was on the mound before the All Star break.
Sabathia, Pettite, and now Nova on the DL. The signing of Derek Lowe could come in play even more now with the thin starting rotation. Nova was already expected to miss at least one start, but now he’ll be sidelined for at least two weeks – and won’t throw for atleast 5 days. David Phelps will now stay in the starting rotation when CC Sabathia (elbow) is activated from the disabled list.
