MLB.COM / Bryan Hoch:

The Yankees’ starting rotation took a hit Sunday, as Ivan Nova will be placed on the disabled list after an MRI revealed he has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament of his right elbow.

Nova, who was removed with discomfort in his pitching elbow during the fifth inning of a 16-1 loss to the Rays at Tropicana Field on Saturday, will be further examined Monday in New York by Yankees team physician Dr. Chris Ahmad.

Not the news you want to hear on Easter.
