According to a report in the New York Post, MLB is investigating Yankees pitchers Ivan Nova and Wilkin De La Rosa over concerns they injected each other with B-12 shots last year as teammates at Double-A Trenton.
B-12 shots are not included in MLB’s list of prohibited substances, but only licensed physicians are allowed to inject players with medication. Also, according to the Post, MLB wants to confirm that it was, in fact, B-12 the platers were using.
Nova, 23, made his major league debut back in May as a reliever for the Bombers. He was recently recalled to the majors, and he allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings in a start against the Blue Jays on Monday. The Yankees rewarded him by naming the starter for Sunday’s game against the White Sox.
The 25-year-old De La Rosa is still with Trenton and has a 5.00 ERA in eight starts and 25 relief appearances this year.
