Meet the new Nova. Same as the old Nova.

I have sketchy recollections of the old Ivan "Super" Nova - the Nova of Christmas past. I can picture him standing out there - those lips, those eyes, aye carummmmbah! - in hi-def, 3-D glare. What I can't remember is whether we could ever count on him.Before his TJ time-out, Nova always showed potential, always stood on the verge, always prepared to break out - except...

Odd man out: New York Yankees to send Adam Warren to bullpen

That answer came early Tuesday morning in the form of right-hander Adam Warren, as first reported by the New York Daily News. After the Yankees 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Monday night, Warren...

Expecting Ivan Nova to boost Yankees’ rotation begs disappointment

What New York Yankees’ right-hander Ivan Nova has accomplished – returning from Tommy John surgery after 14 months away from the game – is undeniably commendable. It takes hard work and determination to rehab from this surgery despite its commonplace.

New York Yankees: Ivan Nova expected to come off DL for next start

Despite struggling with a 4.91 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP and battling rusty command in three rehab starts for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, New York Yankees starting pitcher Ivan Nova is still expected to be activated off the DL in the coming days and make his next start with the Yanks. In his third rehab start coming off of Tommy John surgery in April 2014, Nova was hit hard, allowing...
