Nova headed back to NY to be tested after experiencing tightness and stiffness in right shoulder. Girardi said DL couldn't be ruled out— Erik Boland (@eboland11) August 22, 2012
Nova complained about a stiff/tight shoulder during the sixth inning of last night's game. He's headed back to New York for tests and a trip to the DL can't be ruled out, according to Girardi. Just another injury in a long line of them for the Yankees this season, but if this can in any way explain why Nova has been getting lit up, hopefully they can get him right and back to being super again.
