Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Yankees have placed catcher
Francisco Cervelli and pitcher Ivan Nova on the 15-day disabled list.
Cervelli suffered a fractured right hand during Friday's game against the
Toronto Blue Jays, an injury that will sideline him for at least six weeks.
Cervelli was removed after taking a foul tip from Toronto's Rajai Davis, the
game's leadoff hitter, off his hand to begin the top of the first.
The 26-year-old Venezuelan had won the Yankees' starting catcher job in spring
training and was having a fine start to the regular season, batting .269 (14-
of-52) with three home runs and eight RBI in 17 games.
Nova left Friday's start in the third inning with discomfort in his pitching
elbow. He was placed on the DL with inflammation of the right triceps.
The right-hander is 1-1 with a 6.48 ERA in four games this season.
In addition, New York transferred shortstop Derek Jeter from the 15-day
disabled list to the 60-day disabled list, selected the contract of pitcher
Vidal Nuno from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and recalled catcher Austin
Romine from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Nuno was 2-0 with a 1.54 ERA in four starts for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this
season. Meanwhile, Romine was hitting .333 in 14 games for Scranton/Wilkes-
