Yankees Injuries Update: Ivan Nova, Clay Rapada, Raul Ibanez, David Robertson All Ailing

The New York Yankees earned a solid 8-5 victory over the Baltimore Orioles Monday. It came at a hefty price, hoever, as starting pitcher Ivan Nova, designated hitter Raul Ibanez and relief pitcher Clay Rapada were all injured. The bad news did not end there, as after the game it was revealed closer David Robertson is suffering from left ribcage soreness and will undergo an MRI Tuesday.

"I'm not really concerned," Robertson said. "I would like to get back out there as soon as I can. But I don't want to go out there and take a risk [and] end up putting myself on the DL for a long period of time. There's a little worry, but I honestly, don't think it's too bad."

Nova left Monday's game after he rolled his ankle in the sixth inning and may need to miss a start:

"The X-rays came back negative, so that's a good thing," Girardi said. "Basically, we're going to have to see how he feels tomorrow. I'm sure it's going to be sore where he got hit with the ball, and we're going to have to see how bad he turned it."

Meanwhile, Rapada was forced out of Monday's game with a viral infection, while Ibanez was hit in the elbow with a pitch from Orioles' Dana Eveland. Ibanez is expected to be available Tuesday.
