Yankees' Ivan Nova to undergo Tommy John surgery
As feared, Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova will undergo reconstructive elbow surgery and miss the remainder of the 2014 season.
The Yankees on Thursday announced that right-hander Ivan Nova will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair his torn UCL. Dr. James Andrews will perform the operation on Tuesday of next week (source: CBS New York). Nova has been sidelined since last Saturday when he exited his start because of elbow soreness.
This unsurprising news of course means that Nova will miss the remainder of the 2014 season and likely the early portion of 2015.
In four starts and 20 2/3 innings this season, Nova, age 27, went 2-2 with an ugly 8.27 ERA and 1.84 WHIP. He is 40-22 with a 4.19 ERA in parts of five big league seasons.
