Yankees Activate Mark Teixeira; Place Ivan Nova on DL

Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Yankees have activated Mark Teixeira from the 15 day disabled list.  Ivan Nova has been placed on the 15 day DL with a UCL injury.  I would expect more news to be forthcoming on Nova in the ensuing days.  Nova had to leave his start yesterday after four innings with the injury.

At any rate, Nova will be gone well beyond the 15 days.  He will get further evaluation to see if Tommy John surgery is needed.  In the meantime, Vidal Nuno could be a very sneaky add that I would highly recommend.

INF Scott Sizemore and Matt Daley were sent to the minors.  Pitchers Preston Claiborne and Bryan Mitchell were brought up from AAA and AA respectively.  I would wait to see how they are used before I would consider adding them in any leagues.

In other news, Brewers OF Logan Schafer has been placed on the 15 day disabled list, and Lyle Overbay has been activated from the paternity list in a corresponding move.  Overbay is hitting a laughable .100 on the season, so he probably is not worth adding anywhere.  However, if you feel like playing a free lottery, feel free to pick him up!

The Alex Gonzalez experiment in Detroit has come to an abrupt and merciful end.  The Tigers released the struggling Gonzalez and called up SS/3B Danny Worth from Toledo.  Worth will likely platoon with Andrew Romine as shortstop, but until either has a more defined role, I would hold off on picking either of them up except in AL-only leagues.

With Jose Iglesias done for the season, I would expect Detroit to be on the looking for a rental at short for the remainder of the year.  If anything does happen, you know where to find the fantasy impact!
