The New York Yankees just cannot seem to stay away from the
disabled list. In addition to the rash of stars already there, the Yankees have
now placed starting pitcher Ivan Nova on the fifteen-day disabled list. The
right hander left his April 26 start against the Toronto Blue Jays in the third inning due to inflamed triceps in his right
arm. ESPN-New York Yankees' Wallace Matthews tweeted the news to his followers:

Nova is one of seven normal regulars now on the disabled list.
He is 1-1 with a 6.48 ERA in four starts. He left the game after allowing two
runs on four hits in two innings.
The Yankees have called up lefty Vidal Nuno from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre
to replace Nova. Nuno was 2-0 with a 1.56 ERA in four starts in Triple-A. His
first appearance will be his Major League debut.
In other roster moves, the Yankees also called up catcher
Austin Romine, who will take Francisco Cervelli’s spot on the roster. Cervelli
suffered a fracture in his throwing hand in the same game that Nova left.
Cervelli will need surgery and will likely miss six weeks.
