Nova diagnosed with ankle contusion, sprain
Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova left tonight’s game with a contusion and sprain of his right ankle. X-rays were negative. We’ll have more information when possible, but this sounds like the kind of injury that could cost Nova at least his next start.
Additionally, left-hander Clay Rapada left tonight’s game with a viral infection, the Yankees said. Rapada was spotted by television cameras needing help to return to the clubhouse.
