Yankees | Ivan Nova might start Friday

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova threw in the bullpen Tuesday, July 2, and might be called upon to start Friday, July 5, against the Baltimore Orioles if SP Hiroki Kuroda (leg) is unable to take his turn in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Nova allowed two earned runs, six hits and no walks over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision in his last start against the Orioles June 29, and he is 3-2 with a 5.43 ERA in nine career starts against Baltimore. If Kuroda cannot start, and you need an emergency replacement, Nova is worth using. Outside of deeper AL-only leagues, he should be avoided.
