Despite a right ankle sprain that had put his next start in jeopardy, right-hander Ivan Nova remains on track to pitch against the Reds Saturday. Nova threw a light bullpen session at Rogers Centre Thursday. He also participated in a few drills to prove he’s capable of moving well enough to field his position. “It feels good,” Nova said. “I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.” ... “Our plans have been for him to start,” said manager Joe Girardi, though he could still bump Nova at the last minute if he has issues while warming up for his start.Luckily for the Yankees Nova is OK. However, at this point relatively early part of the season, it's the hitting and not the pitching that is this team's greatest concern, but you already knew that.
