Ivan Nova hurt again, Vidal Nuno to get start
So much for Ivan Nova’s quick recovery.
The righthander, on the disabled list since April 27 with inflammation of the right triceps, was scheduled to start Game 2 of Monday’s doubleheader in Cleveland.
However, Nova “felt something in his left side” while playing catch Sunday morning, according to manager Joe Girardi.
This is a new injury, though Girardi couldn’t say what it was or how long Nova would be out.
Girardi said righthander David Phelps will start Monday’s first game and lefthander Vidal Nuño, 2-0 with a 1.54 ERA in four starts for Scranton before being called up April 27, will start the second. Nuño pitched three scoreless innings in his major-league debut April 29 against the Astros and has not pitched since.
