Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter and SP Jeremy Hellickson will likely open the season in the starting rotation, but a wide variety of pitchers are in contention for the final three spots. SP Trevor Cahill and SP Vidal Nuno have the most major league experience. SP's Chase Anderson, Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster, and Robbie Ray received looks last season. Top SP prospect Archie Bradley will probably open the year in the minors. Other candidates include P's Andrew Chafin, Randall Delgado, and Daniel Hudson.

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.
