Yankees add two more names to their bloated DL

Ivan Nova isn’t expected to miss much time with a triceps injury.

Ivan Nova isn’t expected to miss much time with a triceps injury.

NEW YORK — The Yankees put RHP Ivan Nova and C Francisco Cervelli on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, the latest setbacks in an injury-riddled season.

Nova left Friday night's game against the Blue Jays because of tightness in his right triceps.

"Hopefully, he can knock it out fairly quickly," manager Joe Girardi said.

Cervelli exited with a broken right hand and is expected to miss at least six weeks. Cervelli and Nova joined All-Star teammates Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixiera on the sidelines.

The Yankees recalled C Austin Romine from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and signed and selected LH reliever Vidal Nuno from the minor-league team. Jeter, out at least until July because of an injured ankle, was transferred to the 60-day DL.

1B Kevin Youkilis returned to the lineup after missing six games with lower back tightness.

COACH HAS CANCER: Mariners third-base coach Jeff Datz, 53, said he has been diagnosed with cancer and might be away from the team for part of the season. The type of cancer was not disclosed. In other Mariners news, minor-league LHP Danny Hultzen, one of the team's top prospects, was diagnosed with a left rotator cuff strain and inflammation. He'll rest and rehab for two weeks before being reevaluated.

BLUE JAYS: RHP Josh Johnson, who was scratched from Friday's start because of right triceps tightness, is expected to return to the rotation late this week.

CARDINALS: Closer Jason Motte threw for the first time in five weeks, a step toward determining if he will need season-ending reconstructive surgery on his right (pitching) elbow.

DODGERS: SS Hanley Ramirez, out all season with a torn ligament in his right thumb, was set to begin a rehab assignment at Class A Rancho Cucamonga and could be activated Tuesday. … 2B Mark Ellis strained his right quad Friday night and was set to have an MRI exam.

METS: LH reliever Josh Edgin was sent to Double-A Binghamton to open a roster spot for RHP Shaun Marcum to come off the disabled list.

NATIONALS: 3B Ryan Zimmerman, on the disabled list with a sore left hamstring, is set to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Monday and could be activated when eligible Friday.

PIRATES: LHP Jonathan Sanchez was suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount for throwing a pitch that hit Cardinals 1B Allen Craig in the shoulder Friday night.

REDS: LF Chris Heisey left in the third inning with a strained right hamstring.
