Ivan Nova to throw batting practice


Ivan Nova is taking another step towards coming back to the Bronx. Nova will throw his first live batting practice to hitters on Tuesday since his Tommy John surgery last April, according to ESPN Deportes’ Marly Rivera.

The Yankees have gotten decent starting pitching through the first six games despite going 2-4. Nova could be a big boost if he comes back in the middle of the season. His return could push Adam Warren back to the bullpen where he has thrived throughout his career. Nova made just four starts in 2014 going 2-2 with an 8.75 ERA.
