Nova (triceps) will start the first game of the Grapefruit League season against the Tigers on Sunday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Nova missed most of the 2020 season due to right triceps tendinitis, but he signed a minor-league contract with Philadelphia in January and should compete for a spot in the back of the rotation during spring training. That he's starting Sunday signals that he should be fully healthy this spring.
