Ivan Nova is in agreement to sign with the Colorado Rockies, per Robert Murray of FanSided.
Nova last pitched in spring training for the Phillies, where he posted a 7.30 ERA in 12.1 innings. Nova also struggled in a small sample in 2020 with the Tigers. Nova's role with the Rockies isn't clear yet, but until the 34 year old proves he can limit runs, he offers very little fantasy upside.
Free agent pitcher Ivan Nova has signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies according to Bob Nightengale.
The contract would pay Nova $1.5 million if he makes it on to the major league roster. The 34-year-old Nova struggled mightily in 2020 with the Tigers, in a small sample, when he posted a 8.53 ERA over 19.0 innings (four starts). This is a low-risk signing by the Phillies.
Ivan Nova, who has been out with triceps tendinitis since August 15th, will begin his rehab soon by throwing off a mound.
Nova has struggled this season with a 8.53 ERA in 19 innings pitched. Some of his struggles can be written off as injury related but if you omit his last start where he gave up eight runs in 3 1/3 innings pitched he still has 10 earned runs in 15 2/3 inning pitched (5.75 ERA). Owners in standard 12-team redraft leagues can leave Nova on the waiver wire.
The Tigers placed RHP Ivan Nova on the 10-day injured list with triceps tendinitis.
Nova was lit up for eight runs in 3 1/3 innings on Friday and perhaps this help explains why. It's unclear if the Tigers will use the rotation spot to call up Casey Mize.
Detroit Tigers right-hander Ivan Nova was roughed up in a 10-5 loss to Cleveland on Friday. Nova allowed eight runs in 3 1/3 innings of work while striking out one.
Nova has allowed 13 runs over his past two starts. He now has a 1-1 record, 8.53 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, and nine strikeouts in 19 innings. Stay away in fantasy.
