Ryan goes back on disabled list, this time with bad back - GreenwichTime

"This should be better in a couple of days", said Teixeira, who deflected the idea of a possible trip to the disabled list. "Best case scenario would be [Wednesday’s] game.’’".

Cole Hamels is due to start for Philadelphia in Wednesday's game against New York, setting the stage for an intriguing pitching matchup for Yankee fans in attendance. "I'll give him a day today". So I think we've all experienced that and it can be frustrating and it's irritating. The Yankees sent him for an MRI yesterday, which Joe Girardi said "came back pretty good", whatever that means. "If it was something really bad, you would know right away".

Chase Headley broke out of a 105 at-bat home run slump in the fifth to collect career homer No. 100.

The first baseman said he was unsure how he suffered the injury, saying that it may have been "a weird play at first, a weird dive in the field [or] a weird slide, something like that". After two weeks, you want to get an MRI and it showed some irritation in the joint, so we got it fixed.

Nova has been recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Nova is about 13 months removed from surgery and his minor-league rehab assignment was a mixed bag in terms of results, but reports had his velocity back to pre-surgery levels.

"This is like another dream", the 28-year-old Nova said, comparing the start to his major league debut in 2010. Nova underwent ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction shortly after. In 2011, he was 16-4 with a 3.70 ERA and 1.33 WHIP and finished fourth in the American League Rookie of the Year voting.

Indiana AND OUT: With infielder Stephen Drew placed on the paternity list, awaiting the birth of his third child, Jose Pirela was recalled from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and started at second base Tuesday night.

Because he pitched Friday night and also because the Yankees are now entering a stretch of 20 games in 20 days, Nova will likely get the ball to start in the middle of the week, facing either the Phillies or the Astros.

According to Girardi, Andrew Miller will throw Wednesday for the first time since going on the DL with a strained left flexor forearm muscle strain on June 11.
