Yankees sign Ivan Nova, avoid arbitration

Right-hander Ivan Nova and the Yankees have agreed to a one-year contract, avoiding arbitration.

Nova will reportedly get the same $3.3 million salary he received in 2014, which is fairly standard for a player who missed the entire season due to injury.

In his case it was Tommy John elbow surgery in mid-April, which means Nova may not be ready for the beginning of the season. Nova, who turned 28 years old this week, has a 4.20 ERA in 538 innings for the Yankees since debuting in 2010.
