Tigers eliminate Yankees
Yankees starter Ivan Nova was pulled from Game 5 of the ALDS after just two innings of work by manager Joe Girardi. At the time, it appeared Girardi might have had a very quick hook -- though we did mention an injury was possible -- and Girardi revealed as much in an in-game interview. Friday, Nova had an MRI on his throwing arm and it revealed a Grade 1 flexor strain in his right forearm (Pinstripe Posts).

The injury will fully heal in the offseason and Nova will be ready to once again be a member of the Yankees starting rotation in 2012.

Nova, 24, had a solid rookie season for the Yankees in 2011. He went 16-4 with a 3.70 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. He also picked up the victory in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Tigers.

NEPATRIOTS08-Yes, excuses, excuses...the Yankees suck in spite of those 27 World Series Championships, in spite of their regular season record, in spite of making the playoffs. Nova sucks in spite of his 16-4 rookie season. Now tell us how great the Red Sox are you yammering twit. Tell us how the Red Sox shot themselves in the foot while said foot was in their mouth and their head was stuck up their collective a$$. No excuses, the Yankees lost, good job by Detroit. That doesn't mean a drooling chowduh monkey can talk crap when his heartless team couldn't make the playoffs. You got nothing!
