Nova NOT Sent Down

Joe Girardi has said that Ivan Nova will not be sent down to AAA, and he could see another start before the All Star break. Nova will throw is normal between starts bullpen session today, but there's no word on when that spot start could happen.

While this news bugs me at first, seeing as how the team is leaving themselves with only three bats on the bench, there isn't a good bat to call up anyway. The only position player on the 40-man roster that could be called up from the minors is Ramon Flores, but his batting line this year in Scranton of .241/.337/.328 doesn't make me yelling "ah, come on!"

The Yankees do have a spot on the 40-man available, so they could try others such as Corey Patterson or Brent Lillebridge, but is it even worth the price of a plane ticket to get them to New York? I'm not so sure.
