Yankees SP Ivan Nova takes loss despite quality start Monday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/31/2015) Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova posted a quality start in his outing against the Red Sox on Monday, but he was left with his seventh loss of the season. Nova allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out three, en route to the 4-3 loss.

Nova (5-7, 4.50 ERA) was done in by the longball in this one. He allowed a two-run home run to Mookie Betts in the third inning, followed by a solo shot to David Ortiz in the fourth for the only damge done against Nova. 

This was a good bounceback effort for Nova, who allowed seven runs in his last outing. Overall, Nova had a rough month of August. In six starts, he went 2-4 with a 5.68 ERA.

Nova (5-6, 4.50 ERA) got into big trouble right away, as he allowed five runs to score in the very first inning. Nova started the fifth inning, but he allowed a two-run home run to Evan Gattis, which was the knockout blow for Nova.

Nova has really struggled over his last four starts, going 1-3 with a lofty 7.18 ERA over that stretch.

Nova yielded a double and single to start the second inning, but escaped that jam. He wasn't so fortunate in the third and fourth, when the Red Sox scored three runs on four hits, including a two-run blast by Hanley Ramirez.

Yankees' Girardi waiting until next off-day to finalize five-man rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said following Thursday's game against the Astros a final decision on who will be removed from the rotation won't be made until the team's next off-day Thursday, according to MLB.com.

With Ivan Nova returning from the disabled list, the Yankees have gone to a six-man rotation for the time being. Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda and CC Sabathia appear to have rotations spots secured, leaving Nova, Nathan Eovaldi and Adam Warren fighting for the final two spots.

Although, all signs seem to point to Adam Warren moving to the bullpen since he's had success in a relief role at the major-league level.

"He's pitched as well as anyone in our rotation," Girardi said before Thursday's game. "As I've said, we don't need to make a decision right now. I'm not worried about making a decision right now. I know there's a lot of people around here who want me to make a decision right now, but that's not going to happen.

"There are a lot of things that can happen between now and when we get back from Anaheim. There just is. Let's just see how guys are doing and we'll make a decision."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

“I was throwing changeups like I’m a changeup person ,” Nova said, per The Journal News. “I threw like 15, and I don’t remember the last time I threw 15 changeups in 72 pitches or something like that.

“I feel like I need to get that pitch back. I once had it. I was throwing my changeup (in the past), and if I feel the good grip and I feel it’s a good at-bats (to use it) and I have that confidence, why not start throwing it now? It’s not something crazy. I feel like I’m going to see some spots where I can throw it, (but) not because I want to pitch different or anything like that.”
