Update: Nova leaves game with contusion and sprain of the right foot and ankle


10:07pm: Nova has a contusion and sprain of his right foot and ankle, the team announced. X-rays were negative, but it’s unclear how long he’ll be out. If he needed to spend time on the DL, David Phelps could step right back into the rotation without a hitch.

9:30pm: Ivan Nova left tonight’s game with an apparent ankle/foot injury after fielding a ball in the sixth inning. He’d been hit by a comebacker in the right ankle/foot a few innings earlier but remained in the game. Stay tuned for updates.

    I hope this could mean something for ManBan

      There would be zero reason to do that at this stage. He’s many steps back on the depth chart, as he should be.
