Yankees | Ivan Nova seeking second opinion

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 13:30:03 -0700

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.

Yankees | Surgery recommended for Ivan Nova

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 13:09:15 -0700

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.

Yankees | Vidal Nuno could get spot start

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 20:17:47 -0700

The New York Yankees are leaning toward giving SP Vidal Nuno a spot start Sunday, April 20, because the team had a doubleheader earlier in the week. Manager Joe Girardi said Nuno could give the team 75 pitches.

Yankees | Shawn Kelley unavailable Tuesday

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 08:18:14 -0700

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.

Yankees | David Robertson heading to DL

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 13:29:25 -0700

The New York Yankees will place RP David Robertson (groin) on the disabled list with a Grade 1 groin strain.

Fantasy Tip: A Grade 1 strain is the least severe, so it's entirely possible that Robertson will be ready to go when he's eligible to be activated. Shawn Kelley should be your first target if you're searching for save opps on the waiver wire, but Adam Warren, Matt Thornton, Vidal Nuno and even Dellin Betances might factor in if Joe Girardi is playing the matchups in the ninth. For what it's worth, Kelley had the save Monday in the team's home opener.

Yankees | Three SPs could be bullpen options

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 19:20:32 -0700

Yankees | Michael Pineda the favorite for No. 5 rotation spot?

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 14:46:01 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda gave up four hits and no runs while striking out five in 4 1/3 innings Tuesday, March 18, and it appears the No. 5 rotation spot is his to lose this spring. Pineda consistently hit 85 mph with his slider Tuesday and was between 90 and 92 mph with his fastball, and he was efficient with his pitches. Pineda hasn't allowed a run in nine spring innings. "Aggressive with every pitch. His slider is amazing. The ball was cutting really good. The fastball has some life so it's going to help a lot. And the changeup is great; he throws it right on the plate," C Francisco Cervelli said.

Manager Joe Girardi still wants to see Pineda stretched to the sixth or seventh innings, though, before it's official that he has a rotation spot locked up. However, Girardi said Pineda doesn't look like a pitcher coming off a serious injury. Pineda says he feels like he's getting stronger in each outing, and he won't rule out that he will touch the high-90s again. He's competing with SPs David Phelps, Adam Warren and Vidal Nuno, who each have two spring starts left.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda has come at an extreme discount in drafts because of his serious shoulder injury. With all signs pointing to a bounce-back, don't be surprised to see him shooting up draft boards.

Sun, 16 Feb 2014 11:45:06 -0800

The New York Yankees have signed 2B Dean Anna and SP Vidal Nuno. Anna would make the league minimum ($500,000) if he ends up in the majors and Nuno would make $504,500.
