Yankees Notes: Nova, Aceves, Marte, Pettitte, and More

The Yankees lost a tough one yesterday 3-2 to the Toronto Blue Jays as Ivan Nova made his first big league start. Nova wasn’t overpowering, but if it weren’t for a dominant 12 strikeout performance by Brandon Morrow the Yankees could have won this game.

Here are some notes:

Not a bad start for Nova. At this point I like him for the rotation over Dustin Moseley and probably Vazquez as well. It probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to at least skip Vazquez once or twice to have him rested before the playoffs.

    …and Nova will get another start. Vazquez bumped to bullpen for now. Nova goes Sunday.

    The HR by Bautista off Nova was in the 3rd. Nova (with help from Gardner) got out of a bases-loaded no-out jam in the first with no runs allowed.

    Good call on the 3rd inning.
