Yankees' Girardi: Ivan Nova still targeting June return
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova is still targeting a return to the majors in June, manager Joe Girardi told reporters on Wednesday, per NJ.com. Nova is on the 60-day disabled list recovering from April 2014 Tommy John surgery. He threw 20 pitches in his first live batting practice session at the team's spring training complex Tuesday.
"Everything he's done has been positive," Girardi said. "We just want to keep him going forward. I think they've talked about (rehab) games starting for him around May 1st, so that's really positive."
Yankees' Ivan Nova throws 20 pitches in batting practice

|(4/14/15) Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova threw 20 pitches in his first live batting practice session at the team's spring training complex Tuesday, the Boston Herald reports.
Nova said he was nervous at first but settled down and was happy with his final 10 to 15 pitches. He's scheduled to pitch again in batting practice Friday. Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, Nova looks to be on track to return to the majors in June.
Yankees' Ivan Nova to throw live batting practice Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova (elbow) is set to throw live batting practice Tuesday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery, ESPN Deportes reports.
Nova, who had his surgery last April 29, was transferred to the 60-day disabled list last week. He's at the team's spring-training facility in Tampa continuing his rehab and is set to take a big step forward Tuesday if he can get through the session without issue.
|2014 summary: Ivan Nova made only four starts for the Yankees, as he was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament and underwent Tommy John surgery in late April. He did not fare well in his brief time in the rotation, going 2-2 with an 8.27 ERA.|
Playing time status: Nova is aiming to return to the Yankees' rotation in May.
2015 outlook: The last time Nova was likely healthy -- back in 2013 -- he was having a breakout season. He doesn't have the most pristine control, and even though he can hit the upper 90s, that hasn't been much of a deterrent against contact. What Nova did have at his best was a highly effective sinker, and if he has that again in 2015, he will be worth using in standard mixed leagues as a streaming option. However, there's no need to draft him outside of deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats.
