Sunday Notes: Ivan Nova Has Partial Tear Of UCL
10:45am: MLB has announed that the Yankees have placed Ivan Nova on the 15-Day DL.
10:31am: According to Sweeny Murti, Yankees beat reporter, Yankees starting pitcher Ivan Nova suffered a partial tear of the UCL in his right elbow in yesterday’s game against the Rays. He will be reevaluated in New York on Monday.
Nova, 27, struggled in the early part of the season, going 2-2 with a 8.27 ERA in 20 2/3 innings.
This is a similar injury to the one Matt Moore suffered in Kansas City a little over a week ago, and all Yankees fans can hope for is that Nova doesn’t suffer the same fate Moore did.
