A source said the deal was for $3.3 million, which is the same that Nova made last season when he missed most of the year because of Tommy John surgery.

Nova went 2-2 with an 8.47 ERA in his four starts. The Yankees are hopeful Nova can rejoin the rotation by June. His rehabilitation is said to be going well.

The Yankees' rotation, as it stands now, figures to be Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, CC Sabathia, Nathan Eovaldi and Chris Capuano. If Nova returns healthy, he will step in.

Nova turned 28 on Monday.
