Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Starting pitcher Ivan Nova and catcher Francisco Cervelli both left the New York Yankees' game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday due to apparent injuries.

Cervelli was removed after taking a foul tip from Toronto's Rajai Davis, the game's leadoff batter, off his right hand to begin the top of the first inning. He was replaced by Chris Stewart.

Nova walked off the field after a consultation with the Yankees' trainer after surrendering a single by Davis with none out in the third inning. The team has yet to disclose the nature of the injury.

David Phelps came in in relief of Nova, who was charged with two runs allowed on four hits while throwing 54 pitches in two-plus innings of work.
