Ivan Nova

  1. Yankees demote Ivan Nova to Triple-A

    May 31, 2013, 4:55 PM EDT

    New York Yankees starting pitcher Ivan Nova reacts after giving up a solo home run to Detroit Tigers left fielder Delmon Young in the first inning of Game 5 of their MLB American League Division Series baseball playoffs at Yankee Stadium in New York

    Ivan Nova went 16-4 with a 3.70 ERA for the Yankees as a 24-year-old in 2011, convincing quite a few people that he was a future star, but he’s been terrible since then and now he’s headed back to Triple-A. Nova, who hasn’t pitched in the minors since 2011, was demoted in tandem with the…

  2. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

  3. Yankees’ Ivan Nova, Francisco Cervelli exit with injuries

    Apr 26, 2013, 8:08 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova

    At this rate, the Yankees might run out of players. Two more players are headed to the infirmary as pitcher Ivan Nova and catcher Francisco Cervelli both exited tonight’s game against the Blue Jays with injuries. Cervelli hurt his hand on a foul ball from Jays batter Rajai Davis in the first inning, per ESPN’s…

  4. Prince Fielder powers Tigers past Yankees

    Apr 5, 2013, 4:57 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder, Miguel Cabrera

    Prince Fielder saw to it that the Tigers didn’t need a closer today. Fielder hit a three-run homer off Boone Logan in the fifth to give the Tigers the lead and added a two-run blast for insurance in the seventh Friday as the Tigers beat the Yankees 8-3. Fielder’s first homer came immediately after Yankees…

    Editor to reporter: “This is baloney! ‘Yankees player injured’ is dog-bites-man stuff! Give me some NEWS!” [chomps cigar, thinks about how to discredit Spiderman] Phil Hughes, who will pitch in a Minor League game today, seems likely to begin the year on the DL. Girardi wouldn’t commit to it, though. — Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) March…

  7. Phil Hughes throws first bullpen session since being shut down with bulging disk in back

    Mar 9, 2013, 12:02 PM EDT

    Phil Hughes Reuters

    Phil Hughes was diagnosed with a bulging disk in his upper back not long after arriving to spring training, but he returned to the mound earlier this morning. According to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York, Hughes threw a 10-pitch bullpen session and reported no issues with his back. He’s scheduled to throw a longer…

  8. Ivan Nova has to compete for a spot in Yankees’ rotation

    Feb 15, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Ivan Nova (47)

    Last season Ivan Nova was dumped from the Yankees’ rotation down the stretch and then left off the playoff roster, and manager Joe Girardi said yesterday that he’s not guaranteed a starting job this year. Girardi told Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger that Nova “has to go out and prove himself” in order…

  9. Michael Pineda could begin throwing off full mound next week

    Feb 7, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Michael Pineda Reuters

    After throwing off a half-mound last week for the first time since shoulder surgery, Michael Pineda is close to taking the next step in his rehab process. According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said today that he expects Pineda to progress to his first session off a full…

  10. The Yankees are listening to offers for Granderson, Hughes and Nova

    Dec 6, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    phil hughes getty

    We heard about the Yankees’ willingness to listen to offers for Curtis Granderson the other day, but Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York says that they’re willing to listen to offers for Phil Hughes and Ivan Nova as well. I can see dealing Nova, but Hughes is, at present anyway, the team’s third or fourth…

  11. Andy Pettitte and the Yankees close to a deal

    Nov 27, 2012, 8:50 AM EDT

    Andy Pettitte is almost back: Sources: Andy Pettitte is close to formally announcing he’s coming back, and he’s close to finishing a new deal with the Yankees. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) November 27, 2012 Multiple sources are saying the deal will be announced in the next couple of days. Not that most folks expected him…

  12. And now the Yankees wait for Andy Pettitte

    Nov 21, 2012, 6:53 AM EDT

    andy pettitte getty

    With Hiroki Kuroda in the fold, the Yankees rotation looks like this: CC Sabathia, Kuroda, Phil Hughes, Ivan Nova and David Phelps.  That’ll play, but they really want one more guy. And that guy is presumably mulling it over with his turkey and gravy: The Andy Pettitte waiting game continues. Pettitte is spending Thanksgiving week with his family…

  13. If the Yankees weren’t doomed before, they are now

    Oct 17, 2012, 11:56 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    No, the Yankees probably weren’t beating the Tigers four times in five days either. Still, Wednesday’s rainout made the assignment that much tougher. – Because they’re playing four games in four days, the Yankees have lost the ability to pitch Game 4 starter CC Sabathia on three days’ rest in Game 7. At best, he’ll…

  14. Hopefully Cliff Lee realizes wins are a dumb stat for pitchers

    Oct 3, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee just tossed six innings of three-run ball in his final start of the season and has so often been the case he took a loss because the Phillies’ lineup scored all of one run. Lee finishes the year with a 3.16 ERA and 207/28 K/BB ratio in 211 innings. And he’s going to…

  15. Yankees dump Ivan Nova from rotation for David Phelps

    Oct 1, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova (47)

    Ivan Nova has been a mess in the second half, including back-to-back ugly starts in which he lasted just 2.1 and 4.2 innings, and today manager Joe Girardi dumped him from the Yankees’ rotation. David Phelps will take Nova’s place against the Red Sox tomorrow, with Nova being available out of the bullpen for what…

  16. Andy Pettitte to start Tuesday for the Yankees

    Sep 13, 2012, 5:07 PM EDT

    Andy Pettitte

    Andy Pettitte declared himself ready to return to the rotation following a 55-pitch bullpen session yesterday and apparently the Yankees agreed, because he’ll start Tuesday against the Blue Jays in New York. Pettitte has been out since a line drive fractured his ankle on June 27, but before that he was having a fantastic comeback…

  17. Ivan Nova in, Freddy Garcia out of Yankee rotation

    Sep 12, 2012, 6:10 PM EDT

    Freddy Garcia

    It’s back to mop-up duty for Freddy Garcia. The Yankees’ 35-year-old right-hander, who was initially bounced from the rotation at the end of April, is returning to the pen now to make room for Ivan Nova. Nova, who is recovering from rotator cuff inflammation, will face the Rays on Saturday. He last pitched on Aug.…

  18. Ivan Nova is placed on the disabled list

    Aug 23, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova

    Yesterday I prematurely wrote that the Yankees had placed Ivan Nova on the DL with some sort of arm or shoulder trouble. Turns out he was only reported to be skipping a start.  This time, however, he really is going on the DL. He had an MRI and it showed inflammation in his right rotator cuff.…

  19. UPDATE: Ivan Nova to miss a start after feeling “a grab” in his shoulder

    Aug 22, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova

    UPDATE: Sorry for the confusion. I saw one reporter who had Nova going to the DL. Everyone else is reporting that he’ll merely miss a start. 5: 02 PM: Ivan Nova had a bad night last night, and now it’s being reported that he felt “a grab” in his shoulder during his six-run, six-inning performance…

  20. Justin Verlander fans 14 to defeat Yankees

    Aug 6, 2012, 10:53 PM EDT

    Justin Verlander

    Justin Verlander became the first pitcher since Boston’s Pedro Martinez in 1999 to strike out at least 14 Yankees in a 7-2 victory for the Tigers on Monday. Verlander pitched eight innings and allowed both runs in easily outdueling Ivan Nova on the night. Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera homered off Nova, who ended up…

  21. Alex Rodriguez suffers fractured hand on HBP

    Jul 25, 2012, 1:10 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez 2

    Alex Rodriguez suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left hand when he was hit by a Felix Hernandez slider on Tuesday night and will go on the disabled list, the Yankees announced after the 4-2 loss to the Mariners. Here’s the video. Even though it wasn’t a fastball at 88 mph, it looked like Rodriguez…

  22. Derek Jeter drops a pop up!

    Jul 8, 2012, 9:56 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    It only happens once a decade or so, but Derek Jeter dropped a pop up in the first inning Sunday night, giving the Red Sox an early run. It couldn’t have been a more routine play for Jeter, and he’s always been one of the game’s best shortstops when it comes to handling flyballs. Typically,…

  23. Pedro Ciriaco saves Boston’s bacon in 9-5 win

    Jul 8, 2012, 12:45 AM EDT

    Pedro Ciriaco

    Pedro Ciriaco is so good he even collects hits after the game ends. Making his Red Sox debut Saturday, Ciriaco went 4-for-5 with four RBI in Boston’s 9-5 win over the Yankees in the second game of a doubleheader. His performance caused the Fenway faithful to bring back the “Pedro” chant for the first time…

  24. Yankees rule out Andy Pettitte for two months

    Jun 28, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Andy Pettitte

    The initial word Wednesday was that Andy Pettitte would miss at least six weeks with the broken left fibula he suffered when hit by a Casey Kotchman liner. The Yankees, though, placed him on the 60-day DL today, suggesting that he’ll be put on a rehab plan to return right around Sept. 1. The Bombers…

    Ivan Nova (47)

    Yankees 3, Braves 0: Ivan Nova shut out Atlanta for seven innings and four relievers handled the last two. Atlanta didn’t even get a runner to third base all night. The Yankees have won four in a row, nine of 11 and are now tied for first place in the AL East. Nationals 6, Blue…
