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 | Activate David Robertson

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 08:21:05 -0700

New York Yankees RP David Robertson (groin) was activated from the 15-day disabled list. The club sent RP Cesar Cabral down to Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Fantasy Tip: Slot Robertson into your lineup if you haven't already. It may be worth hanging on to Shawn Kelley for a bit in case Robertson struggles, but most mixed-leaguers can ditch the backup.
