by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) 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."

Ivan Nova opts for surgery, done for season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) Yankees starting pitcher Ivan Nova will undergo Tommy John surery to repair a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow Tuesday, with Dr. James Andrews set to perform the procedure. Manager Joe Girardi confirmed the report Thursday to MLB.com, noting that the likelihood of repairing the injury without surgery was too low to take a risk.

"I think it's the right decision," manager Joe Girardi said. "I haven't really seen anyone rehab a partially torn ligament and have success. It seems what it does is just delay the inevitable of what's going to happen. Then instead of maybe missing a year and a little bit of time, you miss a couple of years."

Nova will likely need 12-18 months to return to action, meaning this is probably the last we will see of him until the 2015 season starts.
