"I just want to keep on pitching and finish my season," said Nova, who is 8-4 with a 3.17 ERA. "Hopefully we can make it to the playoffs and I can keep pitching."
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that his expectation is for Nova to make the start.
"Obviously we'll watch him, but this is not the first time we've dealt with this in the course of the season, and he's pitched very well for us," Girardi said.
