    • Nova (2-1) didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Phillies, allowing one run on five hits over six innings while striking out three. It's his third straight quality start, and Nova has an eye-popping 18:0 K:BB over 19.2 innings during that stretch. The right-hander will look to continue his run of success in Thursday's home start against the Tigers.

    • Pirates' Ivan Nova: Fans nine in Sunday's win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Nova (1-2) gave up three runs on six hits over 6.2 innings in Sunday's winning effort against the Marlins. Nova demonstrated terrific control again Sunday, as he didn't surrender a walk for the second consecutive game. He leveraged his solid pitch location (71 of his 106 pitches were strikes) into nine strikeouts, his most of the season. His one major mistake came in the seventh inning when Justin Bour got a hold of a curveball and slugged a two-run home run. Nova projects to next pitch Friday against the Phillies, so his next matchup figures to be a bit more challenging.

    • Pirates' Ivan Nova: Fans six in Tuesday's win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Nova (1-1) allowed three runs on seven hits and struck out six batters in Tuesday's 8-5 victory over the Cubs. Two of the runs that Nova surrendered came via home runs, both of which were hit by Javier Baez. Despite allowing a pair of homers, Nova showed solid control and didn't issue any walks while tossing 66 of his 102 pitches for strikes. Although his ERA sits at a lofty mark of 5.19 for the year, Nova will have the chance to continue improving, as his next start projects to be a favorable matchup against the Marlins on Sunday.

    • Pirates' Ivan Nova: Will start Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Nova will start Tuesday against the Cubs, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports. Nova was originally slated to start Monday, but the game was postponed one day due to snow. As expected, Nova will remain the starter. He'll be able to pitch again Sunday against the Marlins, preserving his two-start week. The veteran has gotten off to a rough start this year, posting a 6.10 ERA through his first two starts, and the Cubs are unlikely to provide an easy lineup for him to get back on track against.

    • Pirates' Ivan Nova: Start postponed
      By RotoWire Staff

      Nova will not make his scheduled start Monday against the Cubs as the game has been postponed, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports. The game will be rescheduled for the teams' mutual off day on Tuesday. Nova will presumably still be the starter. If that's the case, he'll keep his two-start week, as he'd be able to pitch against the Marlins on Sunday on four days' rest.
