Rookie Nova Impress New York Yankees



While
the Dominican Ivan Nova was getting ready to go home after his last start against the Orioles, a monitor in his locker Alex Rodriguez showed great night praising the pitcher and noting that it used all his pitches. But the evaluation of the third baseman had a small error.

"No changes threw, Alex, " Nova said with a smile directed at the TV.

All will be seen differently from third base, but the truth is that the Yankees are watching every pitch of Nova with great interest.


As manager Joe Girardi scored the best performance of one of their pitchers this spring, the hander allowed no hits in six innings against Baltimore, facing one batter over the minimum and striking out four to lead New York triumph.

"It could not have be better, " Girardi said.

Nova attributed its strength against the Orioles on his slider, as did his catcher Russell Martin.

"I was impressed, " said Martin. "I think even he was impressed. Last year proved he could pitch in the majors, and with an opening like this, you can start the season on the right track. "

Nova said, "My slider is my new toy. At some point you have to start using it. "
