Ivan Nova, as you know, is under investigation by Major League Baseball for some business regarding B-12 injections that may or may not have been B-12 (or something; I’m having a hard time caring).  Yesterday he pitched well in the Yankees win. Here’s this morning’s New York Post sports cover.  I’m not gonna lie: I lol’d:

Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi reports that the Blue Jays are considering moving starter Jaime Garcia to the bullpen. If they go that route, Sam Gaviglio would start in Garcia’s place on Sunday against the Angels.

Garcia, 31, has struggled to a 6.16 ERA with a 56/31 K/BB ratio in 61 1/3 innings over 13 starts this season. Gaviglio, meanwhile, has a 3.75 ERA with 35 striekouts and 11 walks in 36 innings across six starts and two relief appearances for the Jays this year.

Garcia inked a one-year, $10 million contract with the Jays in February. The deal includes a club option for the 2019 season worth $10 million with a $2 million buyout.
