    • Nova (11-14) allowed two runs, one of which was earned, on six hits and four walks while striking out two across five innings, but received no decision Friday against the Cardinals. Nova allowed single runs in each of the first two innings before settling down and holding the Cardinals scoreless while the offense picked him up by scoring a pair of runs which allowed in the leave the game a 2-2 tie. After struggling through three rough outings, he's bounced back by allowing just three earned runs over his last two starts, and he could be very helpful when he makes his last start of the season next Friday against the Nationals.

    • Pirates' Ivan Nova: Confirmed for Friday start
      By RotoWire Staff

      Nova (calf) will make his next start Friday against the Cardinals, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Nova exited his last start with calf discomfort, but it doesn't appear the issue will force him to miss a turn in the rotation. The 30-year-old was able to toss a side session Tuesday with no issues, clearing the way for him to make his next start on schedule. After an impressive start to the season, Nova has turned in an unremarkable 6.22 ERA in 11 second-half starts.

    • Pirates' Ivan Nova: Expects to make next start
      By RotoWire Staff

      Nova (calf) said he expects to make his next start on schedule, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Nova apparently doesn't think the calf discomfort that forced him out of Saturday's contest is anything that will keep him from taking his next turn in the rotation. The Pirates will likely wait to see how he responds to a side session before confirming his status, but it sounds like he might not miss any time. Nova was in the midst of his best start in nearly a month before departing, striking out six and giving up just one runs in 6.1 innings.

    • Nova left Saturday's game in the seventh inning with right calf discomfort, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. At this point, Nova's status for his next scheduled start is up in the air. A decision regarding his availability may not be made until early next week. Nova pitched very well before the injury popped up, allowing two runs on three hits while striking out six over 6.1 innings. It was just his fourth quality start of the second half.

    • Nova left Saturday's game against the Reds with an apparent injury, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. The Pirates have not yet provided a reason for Nova's exit, but C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer suggested it may have been a groin issue. Nova was putting together one of his best starts of the second half before he was forced from the game, allowing just one run on three hits and one walk while striking out six over 6.1 innings.
