Left-hander Vidal Nuno left last night’s start with Triple-A Scranton due to a groin injury, Joe Girardi confirmed. He is likely headed to the DL and there is no word on the severity of the injury.
While Nuno is clearly the team’s sixth starter at the moment, they still have Ivan Nova in Triple-A and Michael Pineda due to start his rehab assignment today. The Yankees still have enough rotation depth despite cutting Chien-Ming Wang loose yesterday. Hopefully Nuno makes it back soon, but groins can be tricky.
