IVAN NOVA RUMORS & GOSSIP
Who do you think deserves to be the New York Yankees fifth starting pitcher?
Team Nova? or Team Phelps?
1) Ivan Nova?
Nova is currently on the 15-DL due to inflammation in his right triceps, but prior had informally been the Yankees fifth starter.
Last night, at the start to the eventual 3-2 Yankees win in Colorado, the NY Daily News reported that Nova said he is good to throw...
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...
The old saying, "if you can't beat 'em, going 'em," may be taken too literally in the Yankees clubhouse lately. The team can't seem to beat the injury bug and it seems more and more players are getting hurt. Most recently, Ivan Nova and Francisco Cervelli had to leave last night's ball game with injuries.

Sandwiched between the Jackie Robinson Day ceremonies and a stirring rendition of "Sweet Caroline," Ivan Nova tried last night to get his first win of the season.Whenever Nova takes the mound, you always have to wonder which pitcher has shown up: Ivan The Terrible or Supernova.

Toronto Blue Jays 3 — New York Yankees 10
Ivan Nova pitched 2 scoreless innings in today’s 10-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays, ending their 7-game losing streak…in Spring Training.

With his New York Yankees now officially in the postseason, skipper Joe Girardi needs to do everything possible to win the next three games.
The Yankees do not want to be one of the two AL Wild Cards, as that could entail possibly flying out to Oakland for a one, do or die game that could either end their postseason; or have them on...
From Wallace Matthews:Last October, when the New York Yankees needed one more win to extend their season another round, they asked Ivan Nova to get it.
This October, they may not even invite him along for the ride.
Thursday night, facing yet another golden opportunity to create some separation between themselves and the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees turned to Nova.
WHO'S THE MAN?
