Ivan Nova will try to resume throwing in September


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Yankees starting pitcher Ivan Nova told reporters that the plan is for him to resume throwing by the start of September, the Star-Ledger reports. Nova is nearly two months removed from Tommy John surgery.

"I'm still two months away," said Nova. "I still have a ways to go."

Ivan Nova set for Tuesday surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) Yankees starting pitcher Ivan Nova doesn't have any reason to wait for his Tommy John surgery, and is set to go under the knife Tuesday, just five days after the decision was made.

"I really had no choice," Nova told MLB.com. "There's no reason to be wasting time."

Nova will undergo the procedure in Ala. Tuesday to repair the partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. 


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.
