The New York Yankees acquired SP Brandon McCarthy from the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, July 6, for SP Vidal Nuno.
Fantasy Tip: Even pitching at Yankee Stadium with that less than desirable infield defense, the ground-balling McCarthy should see his value rise over the rest of the season, if only from positive statistical corrections. Nuno is NL-only fodder.

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova (elbow) is seeking a second opinion on his partially torn ulnar collateral ligament. The MRI performed on the elbow will be sent to Dr. James Andrews.
Fantasy Tip: It's becoming likelier, especially after the first recommendation, that Nova will have to undergo Tommy John surgery. Vidal Nuno has the Yanks' No. 5 gig right now.

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova (elbow) underwent an MRI arthrogram Tuesday, April 22, and the original results of a partial tear of the right ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow were confirmed. Surgery has been recommended.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Nova's 2014 season is all but officially over. He'll likely need the Tommy John procedure, which will keep him out up to a year. Vidal Nuno has taken Nova's rotation spot for now, but he could run with it. Nuno's value increases greatly in AL-only leagues.

New York Yankees RP Shawn Kelley will not be available Tuesday, April 8, manager Joe Girardi said. Girardi doesn't know who'll close today, but Kelley will be the primary option for saves moving forward with David Robertson (groin) on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Not surprising, since Kelley was the primary eighth-inning guy beforehand. Behind him, it's a dice roll depending on matchups, availability and Girardi's feel. Adam Warren should be your first non-Kelley try, but Dellin Betances along with southpaws Matt Thornton and Vidal Nuno all have a chance to earn credit here.
