Update: Ivan Nova leaves game with right elbow soreness

By

10:05pm: Nova left the game with right elbow soreness and tests are scheduled, the Yankees announced. That … doesn’t sound good.

8:52pm: Ivan Nova left tonight’s game in the middle of the fifth inning with some kind of injury. Joe Girardi and the trainer came out to visit him in the middle of the bat, and even though Nova tried to talk them into remaining in the game, he was removed. Replays showed him shaking his arm following his last pitch. Nova has had triceps (2013), shoulder (2012), and elbow (2011) issues in recent years. Stay tuned for updates.

    Elbow, shoulder, triceps… Wrist? What’s left, Ivan?

    • Chip Rodriguez

      Forearm strain? Bruised pinky? Broken knuckle?

    Ugh.

  • ALZ

    TJ is next?

  • Steve

    Nuno’s gotta realize his big opportunity right here. It’s now or never for him.

  • nycsportzfan

    I’m pretty sick and tired of Ivan Nova anyways. Give someone else a chance. See if Nuno can get on alittle streak.

    • Preston

      I think Nuno or Phelps or whoever else they put in the spot will make you miss Nova real quick.

        This.

        As bad as Nova is, and I personally dislike him, neither Nuno or Phelps are capable of putting together dominant stretches like Nova is.

    • ALZ

      He has been terrible inconsistent, but jeez he was a returned rule 5 pick, not like we were terribly high on him to begin with. He has at least exceeded being a #5 starter for his career.

  • capitalT

    Neck from the whiplash turning to watch the shots they were hitting.

  • Chip Rodriguez

    Jokes aside, fingers crossed. *please don’t be TJ, don’t be TJ*

  • nyguy

    Bullpen got crushed again and will lose one of Phelps or Nuno to the starting rotation. Joel Hanrahan anyone?

  • forensic

    If nothing else, it should at least be good for a DL trip and a chance for him to maybe find something (other than maybe injury) that may be leading him astray even more than normal.

  • Chip Rodriguez

    remember when we talked about trading Phelps?

    Never enough starting depth.
