Nova heads to the DL with shoulder inflammation

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Aug 23, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Always nice to post a blog item just as the Yankees are making an announcement…

The Yankees just sent an email announcing that Ivan Nova will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right rotator cuff. According to the team, Nova’s treatment will consist of medicine and rest, and he will not play catch for five days.

The decision was made after Nova was examined by Dr. Christopher Ahmad and underwent an MRI at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Although the Yankees haven’t said as much, it’s expected that this will be the move to open a roster spot for CC Sabathia to be activated from the disabled list tomorrow.

    what are they doing to our pitchers in the minors?
    Besides who are listed right now, Hughes had issues last year, Joba had issues too….. goes on and on. David Phelps, look out….

  2. ac1 August 23rd, 2012 at 4:24 pm

    I would think one of the LA teams would appeal to Swisher with his wife in the TV business. I bet one or both are in play.

    Doubt the Angels with Trout, Trumbo, Bourgos, and Wells there….

    Dodgers too, though they have Kemp and Ethier signed.

    Could play 1b i guess…

    Pitchers get hurt – nothing new there. But yes, you do have to wonder about an organizational philosophy that is designed to protect top young arms when it seems like all those top young arms wind up with arm problems. But hey, let’s keep letting Nardi Contreras ruin pitching prospects. They’re not that important.

    Dodgers playing at the big boy’s table! (as they should.)

  5. ac1 August 23rd, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    Chip, i agree pitchers get hurt. But not this many in one system. Something is definitely wrong down there….

    Technically there are more tv shows and movies being shot in NY than LA now anyway…

    I think Swish winds up in St. Louis.

    next year will be a very interesting year in terms of minor league pitcher development

  8. Tyler August 23rd, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    St. Louis doesn’t really have room for Swisher either. Holliday in left, Beltran in right, and Craig at 1st. If St. Louis signs Swisher, I’d make a huge play for Allen Craig and stick him in right. He’s better than Swisher.

    By the way – I just want you to all be forewarned – this winter I again plan to bang the “Fire Nardi” drum. Seriously, there has to be a better option for running the Yankees pitching program than this unflushable turd.

    I didnt make this comment but i assume with the 189M budget for 2014 looming, we need to know that we can develop cheap pitchers at least for 2014 and 2015 to get the benefits of being under the tax….

    ——————

    I’ve said for a long time I would offer Dave Duncan a 5 year deal worth about $3M/year to set up shop in Tampa and overhaul the organization’s pitching. Have him assemble his own team, evaluate tape and reports on all the key guys throughout the organization the works…

  14. Tyler August 23rd, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    I know Duncan’s wife was ill last year… not sure if he’d want to get back into baseball at this time. Plus, Duncan really was never that great with young pitchers. Only pitcher the Cards really developed was Wainwright recently. He’s better with veterans in my opinion.

  15. kd August 23rd, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    what i meant was since that this year was simply a lost year, 2013 will go a long way to determine if these prospects have what it takes to be solid ml pitchers. a lot of guys who want to shed the ‘potential’ label and show that they have what it takes

    i’m actually quite optimistic about manban. the injury seems to be minor, yet lingering. it seems like he just needs to get stronger. mo said he was the best pitching prospect he’s ever seen. i tend to believe that guy

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I’ve always liked Duncan some of the whole fixing pitchers thing probably got overblown a few times but no one can deny he did a great job.

  17. astrocityfan August 23rd, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    MLB trade rumors reporting dodgers might pursue Agon now that he is on waivers. The article speculates that it might work if LA takes on other players like Beckett

    Yanks have tough schedule ahead from tomorrow:
    Orioles, RAYS, Orioles, Sux and RAYS.

    This stretch can pretty much decide if they can win the div.
    they let 10 game go away (almost).

  19. kd August 23rd, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Yankeesource ?@YankeeSource

    Jose A. Ramirez was my sleeper pick this year in the Yankees system. Last 10 starts: 4-2 2.66ERA, 40.2IP, 29H, 15R, 12ER, 1HR, 15BB, 43K

    he’s the one they kept in the javy vasquez trade with atlanta

  20. UnKnown August 23rd, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    I wonder if there was any thought to throwing Phelps tomorrow and CC on Sunday. CC throwing tomorrow means Phelps now has a full week between starts.

  21. Nick in SF August 23rd, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    I doubt Duncan would accept a job with the Yankees after the way they discarded Shelley Duncan, Mariano Duncan, and Duncan Hines.

    Cool fact: In 522 at-bats this year, Derek Jeter has not popped out. Not so cool: Skip Bayless may accuse him of using anti-popout drugs. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan)

    Skippy picked on the wrong guy this time

    You’re getting a bit ahead of yourself….they have to play Cleveland and Toronto first.

  24. kd August 23rd, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    bayless had a bad reputation to begin with. now it’s trashed. i bet he really regrets saying that junk.

  25. Tyler August 23rd, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    I tuned into First Take today to see what was said about it (I know I gave ESPN what they wanted but I just couldn’t resist)… the funniest part was at the end of that segment the host said that First Take extended an invitation to Jeter to appear on the show and got no response back… I laughed so hard. The nerve of that program to think they had any chance of Jeter stooping so low to make an appearance and defend himself against absolute fabricated garbage.

  26. blake August 23rd, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    Skippy has everyone talking about what he said…which is his only goal….he doesnt care that hes basically a tabloid reporter apparently.

  27. RayVT August 23rd, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    Do you think the Yanks will take a flyer on Juan Cruz? DFA’d in Pitt.

  28. jacksquat August 23rd, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    Welcome to the rotation David Phelps.

    Ok, we have officially dipped into the minor leagues for starting pitching, Betances and Banuelos are not available, and the next in line would probably be Adam Warren. Yep, we had too much pitching.

  29. blake August 23rd, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    Lol….Jeter would never give them the time of day….I love how he just dismisses people….

  30. Tyler August 23rd, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    blake-

    He’s a professional troll. It’s sad that ESPN would employ a guy like that but ratings talk. He has over 790,000 twitter followers so he’s accomplishing his goal.

  31. LGY August 23rd, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    Why would Bayless regret saying something that got him more exposure and TV viewers?

  32. Tyler August 23rd, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Jeter should have said that he would launch a “self-investigation” into these allegations. I would have died laughing.

    LGY-

    He has no credibility left and is a troll so no he shouldn’t regret saying that. If he was still a legitimate sports writer/reporter it would do damage to him but he’s far from that now. I’m not sure if he ever was but those days have long passed.

  36. Tyler August 23rd, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    blake-

    That article sums it up perfectly. Today was the first time I’ve watched that show in a long time (it actually wasn’t too bad when it didn’t solely revolve around his debates) but I don’t think people will ever ignore him. It’s not in our society today. I don’t doubt he’s actually a really good guy… Kim Kardashian and The Rock were great comparisons.

  39. Nilsson August 23rd, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    I’m guessing this isn’t a phantom injury for Nova. Anyway, hopefully it’s not serious and shutting it down now will help when he starts throwing again down the road.

    I still laugh at all those trade proposals to shed “surplus” pitching in spring training and the constant fretting over who’s in the rotation leaving spring training. But this naive thought process will likely happen again next spring.

    Doubt it.
    If i were the Yankees i would resign Kuroda AND pettitte, i’d keep Hughes AND nov (at worst only trade 1), and resign Derek Lowe.

    They will have CC/Kuroda/Pettitte/Hughes/Phelps/Nova/Pineda/Lowe and anyone else in the minors that shows they can pitch….

  41. ac1 August 23rd, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    Lost in the Nova DL move: Joba’s job is saved. Yankees no longer need to demote someone to make room for Sabathia on the roster.
    ___

    No, but maybe they should. I was excited that Joba was back, but watching him, he doesnt appear completely ready and can benefit from time in AAA…

  42. BIG AL August 23rd, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    What we have learned recently;

    Bayless is Clueless

    The Yankees offense is quite anemic

    You never have enough pitching

    Good pitching trumps good hitting

    The Rays are not going away

  43. waldo geraldo faldo August 23rd, 2012 at 6:10 pm

    We also learned that because a person is a former Senator or a former federal court judge, then they must be objective and have integrity. ;)

  44. randy l. August 23rd, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    “It’s sad that ESPN would employ a guy like that but ratings talk”

    i haven’t watched espn in years.

    you have to have a whole lot of nothing going on to wamt to watch those fools.

    who cares what skip bayless thinks.

  45. BIG AL August 23rd, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    The Yankees have dropped the ball with Joba in the past, and I feel they are doing it again. Joba needs to continue his comeback in AAA, until that season ends in 2 weeks. Joba came a long way in less time than many ever expected, but, IMO he was not ready to face ML hitters when he was re-activated.

    If Cano does not start hitting, he could at least show some hustle running out his ground balls. I’ve always been a big fan of Robby, but, he could learn to be a much more complete player if he followed the way Jeter plays the game.

    We have to hope A-Rod comes back healthy, and has a strong finish. If this team can’t come back, after trailing after 8 innings, and find a way to win close games, it’ll be a short post season, or they may be forced to be a WC team.

  46. randy l. August 23rd, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    as far as peds,if i were jeter i wouldn’t let alex near my drinks anywhere near testing time however.

    but that’s another story.

    all kidding aside, how does a pro player like jeter or alex order a drink in boston say without the danger of some loser bartender throwing a PED that he might happen to have in the drink?

  47. Villa Nova-Ya August 23rd, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    Big Al -

    Joba would have to give permission to be sent down to AAA because of his service time.

  48. Phranchise August 23rd, 2012 at 6:25 pm

    Before worrying too much about Yankees schedule, check out the Rays. They also have the Rangers twice. Given Rays and Orioles remaining games, Yankees just need to win series and a little help from none other than the Sox. But out of all three schedules Yankees don’t look bad as long as they take care of Twins and Jays.

  49. BIG AL August 23rd, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Villa -

    If Joba wants more time working on his control, AAA is where he’ll get that time, not in NY. Joba, more than anyone, must realize he’s not helping the team at this point

  50. Phranchise August 23rd, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Nova hasn’t given them anything excited about in months so might as well see if rest and some side work gets him in any shape before the playoffs. CC back, keep Phelps in the rotation. The only thing that scares me is this was the first diagnosis that Pineda had before he went back out there and suffered a tear correct?

  51. BIG AL August 23rd, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    Y’all have a good night.

    GO YANKEES!

  52. waldo geraldo faldo August 23rd, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    Who cares what ESPN thinks or says? Skip Bayless is only slightly worse than the rest of their employees.

    Tim Kurk jian said yesterday that executives around baseball were suspicious of Colon last year because “Colon’s fastball was consistently at 96mph”

    Can anyone help me out here… I’m fairly certain that Colon topped out at 93mph last year and Tim’s entire purpose for lying like that is to throw Colon’s tenure with the Yankees and the Yankees under suspicion.

  53. beedogs August 24th, 2012 at 2:27 am

    Ivan Nova’s arm will not be missed in this rotation.

    Maybe that statement wouldn’t have been true in May, but it sure is now.
