Ivan Nova was pulled in the second inning of tonight’s Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees game in Columbus. Nova already had three strikeouts when he came out of the game.
Joe Girardi said he heard that Nova rolled his ankle. Donnie Collins reported that it happened on a comebacker.
Girardi said he’s not sure the severity of the injury or how long Nova will be out. It’s worth noting that George Kontos followed Nova with 2.2 scoreless innings, getting four strikeouts of his own.
