ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) New York Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow, an injury that often requires Tommy John surgery.

Nova left Saturday night's game against Tampa Bay in the fifth inning. An MRI after the game revealed the injury and he was placed on the 15-day disabled list.

"It's hard," Nova said. "I really don't know what to say. I'm sad right now."
