Yankees' Nova throws breaking pitches for first time since surgery
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Yankees starting pitcher Ivan Nova threw breaking balls Monday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery last year, per NJ.com. Nova said he felt fine after mixing in curveballs and changeups.
"I was scared, man, a little bit," Nova said. "I know they cause more stress (on the elbow) than fastballs."
Nova added he believes he will start throwing live batting practice next week. It will be the first time he faces hitters since leaving his last MLB start April 19 against the Rays.
Nova reiterated Monday he expects to return to the team's rotation around June 1.
Yankees SP Ivan Nova throws third bullpen session
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/24/15) Yankees starting pitcher Ivan Nova (elbow) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session -- all fastballs -- Tuesday, per NJ.com. It was his third bullpen session this spring.
Nova, who is coming off Tommy John surgery, said Tuesday his elbow feels "really good."
"I don't have to be thinking right now that I have to be ready in April," Nova said. "That's kind of the fortunate side of it."
Yankees' Ivan Nova could be available earlier than expected
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova could be available earlier than expected this season, according to ESPN.
Nova is recovering from Tommy John surgery, but may be ahead of schedule. The 28-year-old underwent the surgery last April, and was initially looking to rejoin the club this June. It now appears that Nova could be back before his initial target date.
Nova posted an 8.27 ERA over 20 2/3 innings before having surgery.
Yankees SP Ivan Nova on elbow: 'I feel like nothing happened'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/10/15) Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova has had no setbacks with rehab on his surgically-repaired elbow, Newsday reports.
"To be honest, I feel like nothing happened," Nova said.
Nova indicated last week that his elbow is feeling great and that he appears on track to rejoin the team in June. He tore a ligament in the elbow last April, leaving him with an 8.27 ERA in 20 2/3 innings over just four starts.
Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova on track to rejoin team in June
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/3/15) Yankees starting pitcher Ivan Nova said Tuesday his surgically repaired elbow is feeling great and he appears to be on track to rejoin the team in June, according to the Associated Press.
Nova tore a ligament in his elbow last April, which required surgery 10 days later and normal recovery time is 12-to-15 months for the injury.
He recently agreed to a one-year, $3.3 million deal to avoid arbitration with New York.
|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.
