Yankees postgame: Nova throws an encouraging start

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Jun 23, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Ivan NovaIvan Nova doesn’t want to go back to Triple-A. He made a statement why he shouldn’t have to in this 3-1 loss to the Rays.

The 26-year-old righty got called up for the spot start and left with two on and two outs in the seventh in a 1-1 game. He ended up being charged with three runs and seven hits. He struck seven, six with curves, walked three and hit two — both after he got the first two outs in the seventh.

“He was consistently throwing strikes,” Chris Stewart said. “… Repeating his mechanics has been a problem in the past, but for the most part he was good today.”

Asked if he pitched well enough to stay, Nova said, “I’ve got to say yes. Here is where you want to be.”

Joe Girardi was happy with the effort, too. Nova made three starts after being sent down to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Girardi didn’t want him languishing as a long man here. Nova sees himself as a starter, too.

Asked about whether Nova stays or goes back down, Girardi said, “I have no idea what we’re going to do.”

Perhaps this will turn up the pressure on Phil Hughes to start being more consistent. Hughes’ next start has been pushed back to Thursday against the Rangers at the Stadium. Girardi said it’s “to try to keep everyone closer to a regular turn (and) a couple of extra bullpen sessions for him.”

“This is a game where you have to prove yourself over and over,” Girardi said.

Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon raved about Nova.

“Their guy really settled in,” Maddon said. “I don’t understand why this guy struggles. I have never seen him bad. I don’t know — one of the best pitchers in the world as far as I’m concerned. He gets that hook over and he’s really tough on left-handers.”

Boone Logan gave up a two-run, bases-loaded single to James Loney that broke the 1-1 tie in the seventh, so 10 of Logan’s 28 inherited runners this season have scored.

Brett Gardner went 3 for 4, giving him at least one hit in 24 of his last 29 games and a .336 average over that stretch.

Zoilo Almonte started for Vernon Wells in left the last three games and went 6 for 10 with two doubles (both in this latest game), a homer and four RBI.

    Tough day today…

  2. Niblick June 23rd, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Ugly, ugly end to Nova’s great start. Let’s hope he stays with the Yanks and Joe continues to start Almonte.

  3. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    stop looking for beauty. this is an ugly division and our ugly team fits right in. no bathing beauties here.

    get tough. this is going to be a long ugly battle and the winner will be whichever team shows the most grit.

    everybody is flawed. greatly flawed. the yankees no more or less than anyone else.

    getting jeter back will help a ton, toughest player (mentally) in baseball. even if he is a p/t player.

    getting granderson back will help alot.

    good pitching (key to the kingdom) WILL beat good hitting and we have the best pitching staff overall in the division.

    this is not your grandad’s (nor even your older brother’s) AL EAST

    toughest team wins.

  4. mick June 23rd, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Update, 4:18: Longoria walks, which is probably a good thing the way he’s going, although it loads the bases. Kelley is out, Logan is in.
    ========================
    What was the logic in bringing in Kelley to walk Longo?
    Couldn’t Logan have done that with an IBB?
    ===================================
    at this point nunez will help the team.
    adams cant hit ML pitching.
    12 position players 13 pitchers, sumpthins gotta give.

  5. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Mick-

    How was the the OTG ?

    Was that part good ?

  6. mick June 23rd, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    mtu
    yes it was. always interesting. they played 4 1/2 innings. longer than usual. it was really muggy so yogi and whitey stayed in the golf cart and did no walking. oneill hit one off the wall and during bp he hit about 3-4 out.

  7. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    Nova to the Ro.

    Hughes to the Pen.

    Warren to AAA.

    Almonte stays.

    Swap Ronnier and Adams when he gets healthy.

    That’s my take.

    P.S. Nova on a short leash. Throw strikes or be demoted again.

    ;)

  8. mick June 23rd, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    heard neal was sent down. whats next? nova earned another start.

  9. mick June 23rd, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    Almonte stays.
    ============
    yathink?

  10. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    adams needs to go down.

    but dont give up on the kid. he needs a chance to calm down, recover and learn from what he’s seen.

    he’ll come back hardened and ready to succeed.

    getting sent down is not the end, just ask trout (mattingly, mantle..etc.)

    i think if you want to get anything out of your prospects you have to be just as willing to send them down (and bring them back up) as you are to bring them up in the first place.

    these guys can and will help this team. i like adams alot, thats why i want him sent down (for a spell)

    and organizationally, you have to show that you have to produce or you go down. but when you do produce, you come up.

    meritocracy works.

  11. mick June 23rd, 2013 at 8:24 pm

    well hughes is going thursday so he better be good.

  12. mick June 23rd, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    romine also needs to go down very soon.
    he looks shot even behind the plate.
    they are on fumes and hope they can get a games vs texas.

  13. mick June 23rd, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    20 games to the break.
    11 of them vs Minn and KC.

  14. RhapsodyInBlue June 23rd, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    Dittos MTU.

    Short and to the point the way I like it :-)

  15. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    agreed about romine. he seems overwhelmed.

    just a note here, remember when everyone was saying “why isnt joe playing romine every day?”

    seems like maybe joe knew something we didnt.

    happens all the time.

    Leave it to the smart people of Utah to make the right decisions.

  18. Giuseppe Franco June 23rd, 2013 at 8:38 pm

    First off, Nova looked very good today but did it against a weak offense. I do think he needs another good start or two to stay in the rotation.

    Secondly, if you send Adams down you have nobody to play 3B.

    Thirdly, who becomes the backup catcher if Romine is sent down?

    Can’t start sending guys down when there are no other options to replace them.

  19. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 8:38 pm

    schilling shilling for the bosox on mlb.

    what else is new?

  20. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    the problem isnt who can play 3b. nix can play 3b better than adams and has played more games at 3b than ss in his career.

    the problem is who plays SS.

  21. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    RIB/69-

    I for got Romine.

    Swap JR Murphy for Romine.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence.

    I can guarantee you it’s not deserved.

    :)

  22. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    i think the nunez injury has hurt the yankees as much as any.

    and i think getting him back will help as much as anyone else.

  23. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    Y’s-

    Don’t forget the Cisco kid.

  24. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 8:51 pm

    In this case it is broke so you have to fix it.

    He will since he knows the pressure is on.

  26. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 23rd, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    Okay, after trying to get these damned stats to add up to 75 games, I am giving up. I’m missing one stat. I did a spreadsheet and kept going down the game schedule, and then I did it by team opponent.

    TOTAL POINTS SCORED AND NUMBER OF TIMES

    0 – 0

    1 – 7

    2 – 10

    3 – 11

    4 – 16

    5 – 6

    6 – 7

    7 – 6

    9 – 2

    11 – 2

    14 – 1

    ************************

    # OF GAMES WITH RUNS OF 3 AND UNDER – 34

    # OF GAMES WITH RUNS OF 4 AND MORE – 40

    ***************************

    Don’t know what if anything we can glean from this but I wanted to see the spread. I don’t think it looks so bad, especially with the 4 runs and above.

  27. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    cisco too, good point mtu.

    these older guys will come back and help but we’re already way into diminishing returns with arod and jeter. and reinjury and reduced playing time is pretty much guarenteed.

    these young guys are greatly needed but right now being overexposed. but in the long run, this may actually help.

    i expect this team to play better in the second half, not just because these guys are coming back, but because the kids will do better not being depended upon day after day.

    keep the faith folks, pitching does beat hitting.

  28. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 23rd, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    Oops – that should have been 6 times for 0 runs (shutout)

  29. Hankflorida June 23rd, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    Musty is on the DL, so there is no one to replace Adams. Nix could play 3rd, but then you have Gonzales to play short which is not a real upgrade in hitting. The Bronx Bombers were known in the past few years as scoring with home runs and not a team that can manufacture runs. This team of subs cannot hit when it counts and are void of the long ball. I am afraid a quick fix even with a guy like Almonte getting all these hits could not really help this team as their are two many holes to fill. Almonte will fade as Overbay, Hafner and Welles have done, and without the three run homer and their pitching not being strong enough to sustain a weak offensive team, the Yankee will be lucky to avoid a battle to keep out of last place.

  30. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    we’re building up a crew of young guys who will probably not be stars but may well be the lifeblood of our offense the rest of this season.

    romine, almonte, adams, nix (not as young as the others) Z, when these guys arent forced to carry the load, might actually help carry the load.

    i see good things ahead.

  31. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    schilling just said he thinks scoscia is going to ‘pay for this’ (meaning the horrible loss today as well as the sweep by the pirates)

    i think scoscia is one of the best out there and when the angels let him go, someone else is going to profit greatly.

  32. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    And the bonus question for tonight.

    What will Pineda be ?

    A stud.

    A good middle of the rotation starter.

    A closer.

    A bust. Plagued by injury.

    Vote now.

    :)

    20 games to the break.
    11 of them vs Minn and KC.

    ———-

    Is this a good thing? We got swept by Mets, and just split 6 games at home vs last place team’s

  34. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    as much as the weather can help the yankees, it is helping now.

    the rangers who havent had a day off in 3 weeks are scheduled to play tonight in st. louis. the start is delayed by rain but the cards think there may be a ‘window’

    the rangers, according to buster, have alot of family waiting in NY to spend their first day off in weeks with them.

    let’s hope they find that window, start the game and then suffer seveal delays and go till, oh about 2 am.

    sorry to the fine folks who might be waiting for their loved ones in NY, one game either way is likely to make the difference in the AL East.

    rooting for on-again, off-again rain in STL tonight!

  35. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    “We got swept by Mets, and just split 6 games at home vs last place team’s”
    ===========================================
    thats one way of looking at it.

    another way is that we just put the rays into last place.

  36. Jerkface June 23rd, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    You can just use the scoring link on bbref to show you how they score. It all adds up to 3.9 runs per game, one of the worst numbers in the majors. Theres no way to slice it to make it better. Because we know that there are 10+ teams that can be sliced up BETTER.

  37. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    mtu i vote for an inconsistent but sometimes eye-opening starter.

    best that can be expected, imo.

  38. Dumper Pumper Jr June 23rd, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    Its time for Cashman to make a trade for an Major League bat.
    Doesn’t have to be crazy.
    Some guys have been hitting .100, .150,.200 for over months now.
    There has to be something better.

  39. Jerkface June 23rd, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    And there are 20+ teams in the majors that can be sliced up better. They are a bad offense. They are 26th in OPS+, because they play in a pretty even/skews hitter friendly park. Its not like they play in safeco or petco where you expect a diminished offense. They are one of the worst offenses in the game in spite of their ballpark.

  40. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    Y’s-

    If he can stay healthy, and that’s a big if, I vote stud.

    Within 2 years.

    Otherwise, bust.

    I look at that as the Jays took themselves out of last place.

  42. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    how many trades of any note have been made so far this year?

    or in june of any year?

    its nice to say, ‘go make a trade today’ but that’s just not the way mlb works.

    no team wants to make a major trade this early because they think they may get a better deal closer to the trade deadline when alot more teams are trying to make a move.

    like it or not, you can’t rush the market unless you make an offer that can’t be refused, in which case, you lose.

  43. Nick in SF June 23rd, 2013 at 9:23 pm

    “First off, Nova looked very good today but did it against a weak offense…”

    Same with Archer?

  44. Jerkface June 23rd, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    The rays offense is actually above average, they score 1 run more per game than the Yankees.

  45. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    EXCELLENT!

    the cards have put it out that even though its still raining, they expect to start this game soon.

    rooting for the rain to stop…for about an hour.

    then every half hour beyond that….

  46. Rich in NJ June 23rd, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    I don’t think pressure is going to help Hughes. A change of scenery/ballpark might.

  47. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    han-ram?

    any takers?

  48. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    Y’s-

    Absolutely. Sign me up.

  49. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    mlb runnig a piece about perfect games.

    larson said that after mickey made the running catch in the gap, they got in the dugout and larson said’ look at the scoreboard, wouldnt that be great’ and mickey walked away without saying anything.

    so not only did larson ‘jinx’ his own perfect game, but so did vin scully in the radio booth.

  50. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    you’d have to use hanram at third, just to avoid the ‘jeter’s heir’ thing.

    but id go for the ‘buy low’ option on hanram.

  51. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    Y’s-

    Who cares. I’ll take a flyer.

    If that guy stays healthy he can really play.

  52. Rich in NJ June 23rd, 2013 at 9:51 pm

    If they are willing to pay Ramirez $16m in ’14, it pretty much says austerity is dead.

  53. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    rich, i seem to be alone in the belief that they actually will go over the $189 next year, in fact i expect them to blow that budget at the trade deadline.

  54. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    Y’s-

    I think they’ll look for 1 yr. fill-in deals. Rentals.

    I’d be just as surprised as Rich if they did more.

    Hal said he’d fix it if they were not competitive.

    But they are so far. Even w the weak O.

  55. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    carlos gomez made an amazing catch in milwaukee today (wearing some weirdo ‘polish pride’ unis), but misjudged where the fence was and fell hard on his shoulder.

    the beermakers say they will evaluate him tomorrow but it sure looked pretty terrible.

    gomez having a pretty great year on a crappy team.

    amazing catch by puig today, too, just another day ….

    trout (ho hum) and vmart with some great leather today, too…

  56. Rich in NJ June 23rd, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    Y’s

    It wouldn’t surprise. I’m not sure Hal knows. I think he still wants to, but now recognizes that the state of current team is significantly less than he had hoped.

    He does have the option of taking on 2014 money now, and then ultimately offsetting that by letting Cano walk.

  57. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    i think the attendance dip along with the alarming loss of offense is going to spur hal to go over the budget. funny thing is, they may go over and still not bring back cano, which imo might be the best way to go.

  58. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    If Nova continues successfully and Pineda has no setbacks I say adios to Phil and Joba.

    I package them along with others to make one really good move.

    More mediocrity is no what we need IMO. We need a peice for now and the future.

  59. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    Check in w all the Western Teams on Hughes.

    See what they’d offer.

    Ya’ never know.

  60. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 10:11 pm

    considering their pending free agency, i dont see phil and joba headlining any trade that brings you back a big piece. sanchez, drob and nova/phelps (or a healthy pineda) might start you on that path and you may have to throw in phil.

    phil has little value as a pending fa. joba even less.

    phil is only worth a mediocre major league player without much upside.

  61. Rich in NJ June 23rd, 2013 at 10:12 pm

    The problem is what to do with Hughes until they move him. It’s obvious that they want to give Nova another start. If Hughes somehow does well in his next one (assuming he makes it), then what?

    The problem with Nova is that he shows flashes but has never been consistent over time.

    But he’s under their control beyond this season and Hughes isn’t, so that’s determinative.

  62. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    i said earlier, phil for: j uribe, calos quentin (you have to add to phil) or maybe brandon belt.

  63. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    Y’s-

    If it’s a Western Team you offer a negotiating window.

    Hughes wants to return home, or at least get closer.

    That makes him more than just a rental.

    ;)

  64. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    Rich-

    That’s an easy one for me.

    If Hughes has a quality start you continue to use him as a SP unless he flops badly.

    Nova returns to AAA.

    The more value Hughes has the better.

    All things equal you definitely trade Hughes and keep Nova.

  65. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    negotiating window adds very little value to the player. remember that the team that owns him already gets a window before they become fa’s. we’re not talking about a justin verlander/miguel cabrera/carlos gonzalez here, the ‘window’ is just a chance to overpay a mediocre player here.

  66. Rich in NJ June 23rd, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    MTU

    Based on Girardi’s comments, the way Nova pitched, and their tiny margin for error, I think they want to keep sending Nova out there until he falters, but I could be wrong.

  67. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    Y’s-

    I disagree. If the aquiring Team can get a deal done up front that has value.

    Let’s just agree to disagree on that one, and see what transpires.

    :)

  68. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    Rich-

    That’s probably correct. It diminishes Hughes value even further though.

  69. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    Anyway, just as a general principle let’s chop out some of our deadwood and replant.

    Hike day tomorrow.

    Time for some rest.

    Have a good one.

    :)

  70. Ys Guy June 23rd, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    tarp being taken off in st.l.

    ok guys, good discussion. as always, we will see or else we’ll be dead and it won’t matter.

    take care and keep the faith!

  71. Rich in NJ June 23rd, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    Exactly, MTU. That’s why it’s such a tough call, unless he has bad in his start and Nova is good again. Then I think they may move Hughes to the pen.

    Detroit could probably use Hughes or Joba as a closer candidate right now.

  72. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    Rich-

    It should be interesting.

    Stay tuned.

    ;)

  73. JT June 23rd, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    James Loney isn’t Joe Mauer. Logan has to get Loney in that spot–period.

    That was a winnable game.

  74. Nick in SF June 23rd, 2013 at 10:27 pm

    Hughes is going to want to negotiate access to an In-N-Out Burger drive-thru window.

  75. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    Sometimes for a LOOGY Logan isn’t a very good LOOGY.

    :(

  76. MTU June 23rd, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    Night. Night.

  77. Rich in NJ June 23rd, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    I have heard so much about it, I wish they’d put an In-N-Out Burger in NJ, and I don’t even eat meat.

  78. Nick in SF June 23rd, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    5 Guys is pretty much as good or better, so you can not get one of those to replicate the experience.

  79. JT June 23rd, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    Phil Hughes is going nowhere. He will remain in the rotation and will be signed to a multi-year extension after the season.

    the long term contract I mean.

    The Underbite could definitely hve success in the NL. Also, is Maddon alluding to Nova’s ridculous quote from a while back, about being the best pitcher in the game? There’s a whiff of sarcasm there, I think.

  83. tucker June 23rd, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    Yeah, don’t see the Yanks getting much for Hughes, certainly not Quentin (why would the non-contending Padres want a half year of Phil?) or the Giants ( Brandon Belt has several more years of team control).

    Best hope is a prospect for Phil unless you package him as part of a larger deal to a contending team. A team that is not in contention has no use for Phil, so that leaves good teams who are in contention and desperate for pitching because Phil is not having a very good year.

    So after watching that guy walk across the Grand Canyon I am convinced, absolutely convinced, the Yankees can finish the season averaging at least 4 runs per game. Feeling optimistic baby!

    Also how about the Sox crying about how the umps robbed them of that game today. Boo-Hoo losers.

    I don’t know if Hughes will pitch any better with all that time off. As for trade which I don’t want. I would like to see him go to the Mets or the Dodgers. Hope he doesn’t end up in Boston, Baltimore, or Toronto.

  86. igotid88 June 23rd, 2013 at 11:34 pm

    And Hughes is not having a good year so far. The season isn’t over yet. Similar stats last year and pitched well the rest of the way.

    The doctor has cleared A-Rod to start playing rehab games in a week.

    Doubt the Yanks would trade Phil to another AL East team unless they are out of the race by the trade deadline. i suspect the Yanks will pitch well enough to stay in the race through the summer.

    Dodgers could be a possibility, or maybe the Giants. or how about the Pirates if they remain in contention?

    @DanBarbarisi When asked if he pitched well enough to stay up in the majors, Nova replied, “I gotta say yes.”

    One thing about Ivan. Nobody is ever going to like Nova’s pitching better than Nova himself.

    We now have lots of those. Thanks.

    “Logan has now allowed 10 of the 28 runners he’s inherited to score. ”

    They need a true LOOGY.

    Rich,

    According to Kay he has established himself as one of the best lefties in those situations. Some people are just asshats.

  93. jacksquat June 24th, 2013 at 12:32 am

    Logan’s inherited runners % shouldn’t stay that high if his peripheral numbers stay the same.

  94. Jerkface June 24th, 2013 at 1:11 am

    IF he continues to allow lefties to bat .290 against him he will give up hits vs them in the key situations he is called on (inherited runner situations).

  95. Madrugador June 24th, 2013 at 5:29 am

    Yeah, the story of this game wasn’t Logan for me. It was the same story we’ve seen all season- a weak offense. The difference was this was against a weak pithcher.
    Not sure I would continue to bat Almonte so low in the line up. I know it is only three games but with so little offense……
