Ivan Nova (triceps) could be activated from the disabled list early next week.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi was vague about a possible timeline for Nova when asked Wednesday, but general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that he is the closest to returning among the team's injured players. However, it isn't clear whether he'll do so as a member of the starting rotation.
Orioles designated RHP Alex Burnett for assignment.
The move clears a spot for Kevin Gausman on the 40-man roster. Burnett made two appearances with the Orioles earlier this month and owns a 1.86 ERA and 8/1 K/BB ratio over 9 2/3 innings in Triple-A. He could draw interest on waivers.
