Ivan Nova Has Partial Tear Of His UCL

The New York Yankees got the worst news they could have possibly thought of when they got the MRI results back last night. The MRI shows a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament which usually means Tommy John surgery for the right hander. Nova will be reevaluated by Yankees team Dr. Chris Ahmad tomorrow during the off day and will make the Tommy John surgery or rehab decision then.

Terrible news. Nova is headed to the 15 day DL to make room for one of the call ups from last night, Preston Claiborne and Bryan Mitchell.

Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
