NEW YORK, N.Y. - Ivan Nova and the New York Yankees have agreed to a $3.3 million, one-year contract, the same salary the pitcher earned when he missed most of the 2014 season because of a torn elbow ligament.Novas salary is not guaranteed under the agreement announced Wednesday, a day after he was among four Yankees to file for salary arbitration.Nova injured his right elbow April 19 during a game against Tampa Bay and had surgery 10 days later. He is expected to return to the Yankees rotation in May or June.A 28-year-old right-hander, Nova is 40-22 in parts of five major league seasons. He would be eligible for free agency after the 2016 season.Right-handers David Carpenter, Nathan Eovaldi and Michael Pineda also filed for arbitration and would exchange proposed figures with the Yankees on Friday if they dont reach agreements before then.

Amare Stoudemire had 22 points and 10 rebounds, Carmelo Anthony scored 21 and the New York Knicks won their eighth straight game, 93-92 over Philadelphia on Friday night, sending the Sixers to their 23rd straight loss. Discount Sports Jerseys . He scored two highlight-reel goals in a three-minute span -- the second on a sideways bicycle kick in the 78th minute -- to give the Whitecaps a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers before a crowd of 20,303 at B. https://www.discountsportsjerseyscheap.com/. The injury will keep the Finnish forward out of the Olympics. The 29-year-old has 20 goals and 41 points in 56 games this season, his first with Tampa Bay. Stitched Sports Jerseys . The day began ominously for the Rangers when star pitcher Yu Darvish was scratched from his scheduled start with stiffness in his neck. Fill-in Scott Baker gave up three hits over six innings and Chris Gimenez hit a tiebreaking two-out RBI single in the sixth off Phil Hughes. Sports Jerseys . Both the top-seeded Djokovic and sixth-seeded Fish took relatively easy paths, with the Serb winning when opponent Jo-Wilfried Tsonga retired in the second set with a sore arm and Fish dominating Janko Tipsarevic in two quick sets.Every NFL season offers much to marvel at or laugh about, and plenty of chances to shake our heads in befuddled wonderment.That final description certainly fits the mind-numbing off-field news that plagued the league this year, beginning in the preseason with the Ray Rice case. For anyone who hasnt had enough of that stuff, look elsewhere.These offbeat awards will recognize the good, bad and ugly on the field.BEST GAME: Green Bay 26, New England 21, in a possible Super Bowl preview. Aaron Rodgers outdueled Tom Brady, although the difference might have been the Packers defence. On the Patriots final series, rookie safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix blanketed Rob Gronkowski on a deep pass on second down. Brady was sacked on third down, Stephen Gostkowski missed a 47-yard field goal, and the host Packers ran out the clock.Runner-up: San Diego 38, San Francisco 35. In Week 16, the Chargers rallied from a 21-point hole in the second half. Philip Rivers hit Malcom Floyd for an 11-yard TD to tie it, and Nick Novak kicked a 40-yard field goal in overtime after a Niners fumble.WORST GAME: Atlanta 56, Tampa Bay 14. A nationally televised Thursday night debacle in September, the worst performance by the Buccaneers, which is saying something considering they are 2-13 now. The Falcons led 35-0 before the Buccaneers picked up a first down. Atlantas offensive starters left after Steven Jacksons 3-yard touchdown run made it 49-0 before the midway point of the third quarter.Runner-up: Jets 16, Titans 11. The only such final score in NFL history. Hopefully the action from this game will quickly be forgotten.BEST PLAY OF THE YEAR: It didnt win the game, and wound up being not particularly impactful in the grand scheme for his team. Yet Odell Beckham Jr.s phenomenal three-fingered touchdown catch while falling backward into the end zone against Dallas cant be topped.When Im standing on the sidelines, Im rooting for him all the way, coach Tom Coughlin said. When I get to Monday, sometimes I run it back an extra time.Runners-up: This one did win a game. Vikings rookie LB Anthony Barr chased down Bucs TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, stripped the ball and took it 27 yards for a touchdown in overtime and a 19-13 victory.And Beast Mode 2, Marshawn Lynchs sensational 79-yard touchdown run for Seattle against Arizona in Week 16.WORST PLAY OF THE YEAR: Figures it would be the Raiders. WR James Jones fumbled twice on one play vs. Houston. He lost the ball, picked it up and started running again, only to be stripped a second time and the Texans recovered.Runner-up: A tie between Chicago DE LaMarr Houston and Detroit LB Stephen Tulloch. Each tore an ACL on sack celebrations.BIGGEST SURPRISE (PLAYER): The Ravens were in a dire situation after Rices suspension andd injuries/mediocre play by his replacement, Bernard Pierce.dddddddddddd In stepped a true journeyman, Justin Forsett, and hes been magical, juicing up the Baltimore offence with a combination of the steady and the spectacular.Runner-up: Detroit safety Glover Quin, like Forsett a former Texan, and like Forsett, a journeyman who has found a home, solidifying the Lions secondary.BIGGEST SURPRISE (TEAM): Only because they were expected to head directly south from their recent string of 8-8 finishes, it has to be the Cowboys. Rather than plummet despite an undertalented defence and questionable coaching, Dallas has surged to the NFC East title, possibly a first-round playoff bye.Runner-up: Buffalo. No, the Bills wont snap their league-high streak of non-playoff seasons, now at 15. But they wont have a losing record, either, and made their future look brighter for once.BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT (PLAYER): Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, although we very much want to give him some slack. Griffin still doesnt appear fully recovered from his knee woes, and other injuries have slowed him. That said, RG3 struggles with too many fundamentals, including footwork — odd for a guy with Olympic running skills.Runner-up: Saints safety Jairus Byrd, their top off-season signing, had no interceptions through four games and then went on injured reserve (knee).BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT (TEAM): Da Bears. Dysfunctional as they come, the Bears were the fashionable pick as a rising team this season. Instead, they flopped so badly a total housecleaning could be in order.Runner-up: San Francisco, which because of front-office discord is about to lose the best coach it has had since Bill Walsh.BEST PLAY-BY-PLAY ANNOUNCER (TV): Mike Tirico, ESPN. We should just rename this award for the top, by far, play-by-play guy on TV, regardless of the sport. Tirico especially shines on the NFL, where his understanding of the game and, especially, its nuances and rules — from the obvious to the obscure — serves the viewer. So does his brutal honesty, something rare among NFL broadcasters.Runner-up: Kevin Harlan, CBS. Also give a listen to him on Westwood Ones radiocasts of national games. Hes so descriptive you feel as if you are in the stadium.BEST ANALYST (TV): Rich Gannon, CBS. Want to know how and why something happened? Gannon provides it.Who messed up and who performed above and beyond? Gannon provides it.Some humour? That, too.And he works Sunday games with Harlan — a duo worthy of being the networks top team.Runner-up: Now that both of them are willing to criticize when its called for, Jon Gruden (ESPN) and Troy Aikman (Fox) deserve recognition for their strong work.___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
