Ivan Nova has requested another opinion on the partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, according to Chad Jennings. The Collective Bargaining Agreement allows plays to get another opinion from the doctor of their choice. The test results are being sent to Dr. James Andrews and it is unclear if he will look at Nova himself. Yankees team doctor Dr. Ahmad confirmed the original diagnosis during yesterday’s exam, but I guess Ivan wants to make sure he can not avoid Tommy John surgery before going under the knife. No big deal. Few days won’t make a difference.
