Quote from the series preview

Brett Oberholtzer took a rotation spot after the trade of Bud Norris and never let go of it. Obe' isn't going to blow anyone away, working in the low 90's. But, his changeup is killer to right-handed bats. Ivan Nova has been a bright spot for the Yankees' older staff. He posted a 2.70 ERA over 16 starts in the final part of the season.
