Yankees | Ivan Nova the favorite for rotation spot

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova, who will compete with SP David Phelps for the No. 5 starting rotation spot, could have the leg up in the battle, according to pitching coach Larry Rothschild. "You look at Nova and he's had a lot of wins the last two years," Rothschild said. "My job going into spring training is to get him back to where he should be and pitching the way he's capable of, and the rest will take care of itself." Rothschild said Nova had a few bad months because he kept going with a pitch even though he wasn't having success using it.
