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.
