I’ve always thought that Nova isn’t a great starter. Even a great pitcher in general. My move would be to trade Nova off in all honesty. I’ve never really liked him as a pitcher; I feel as if we could find someone who is much better. Phelps should have gotten the last pitching rotation spot. In my opinion he’s a much better pitcher overall - starting and relieving - than Nova is.
The Yankees received 20 year old LHP Miguel Sulbaran from Minnesota.
The Yankees placed 1B Mark Teixeira on the 15-day DL with a right hamstring strain. They recalled C Austin Romine from Triple-A.
