New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said SP Ivan Nova (triceps) threw a bullpen session Saturday, May 11, and did not report any problems.

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova (triceps) gave up two runs in four-plus innings in an extended spring game Wednesday, May 8, and he felt better than expected. Nova didn't feel any pain in his triceps, but his location wasn't very sharp. He threw all his pitches and allowed five hits while walking three and striking out five. Nova is hoping that he can return to the rotation next, but his next outing is undetermined.
Fantasy Tip: Joe Girardi didn't seem to think Nova's command was up to par, so it's likely that he'll throw another extended spring outing or in a minor league game before returning to the rotation. Nova hasn't been very sharp this year. Until he can turn things around, he's best left to the waiver wire in mixed leagues.

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova's (triceps) inflammation in his right triceps isn't believed to be serious, and the team is hoping that he can return from the disabled list when eligible May 11. Nova said he had pain in his elbow when he threw his curveball, so he thought his injury might be structural. No further tests are planned for Nova.
Fantasy Tip: Since Nova should only miss a few starts, David Phelps should only attract interest from those playing in AL-only universes. However, if Phelps were to pitch well in his audition, he could possibly take Nova's rotation post. That's purely speculation, however.

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova (elbow) left his start Friday, April 26, against the Toronto Blue Jays due to a pain in his right elbow.

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova had his ERA rise from 5.59 to 6.14 against the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday, April 21, after giving up four runs and seven hits in five-plus innings. He also walked a season-high four and struck out five. "I still lack command, I'm not throwing strikes and that kind of makes me mad," Nova said. "I know I can do better than this and I'm not happy."
