      Ivan Nova: Released by Rockies

      Ivan Nova was released by the Rockies on Thursday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.Nova spent less than three weeks with the Rockies' organization and never cracked the 40-man roster. It's unclear why they lost interest in him so soon. The 34-year-old is coming off a year in which he recorded an 8.53 ERA over four starts, be he kept his ERA below 4.75 in each of the four previous seasons, so it's certainly possible he can fill in somewhere as a back-end starter.

      Rockies' Ivan Nova: Signs with Rockies

      Ivan Nova signed a contract with the Colorado Rockies on Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.Nova was let go by the Phillies at the end of spring training after he posted a 7.30 ERA and 1.95 WHIP with six strikeouts in 12.1 innings this spring. Starter Kyle Freeland (shoulder) is currently sidelined and doesn't yet have a timetable to return, but it's not clear whether Nova's agreement is a major-league contract or whether he'll be ready to pitch for his new team right away. Nova made four starts for the Tigers in 2020 before he was shut down due to right triceps tendinitis, and he posted an 8.53 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 19 innings.

      Ivan Nova: Let go by Phillies

      Ivan Nova was released by the Phillies on Thursday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.The veteran was in camp as a non-roster invitee but evidently wasn't going to win a roster spot, so he's been allowed to seek work elsewhere. The transaction seemingly indicates good things about the health of at least one of Zach Eflin (back), Spencer Howard (back) or Vince Velasquez (oblique), as Nova could have made a spot start or two to open the season if all three of that trio were forced to head to the injured list.

      Phillies' Ivan Nova: Starting Grapefruit League opener

      Ivan 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.

      Phillies' Ivan Nova: Lands with Phillies on minors deal

      Ivan Nova (triceps) signed a minor-league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.The deal will pay the veteran righty $1.5 million if he's able to make the big-league roster. Now 34 years old, Nova appeared to have something left in the tank up until very recently, recording an unexciting but acceptable 4.31 ERA from 2016 to 2019. His 2020 campaign went quite poorly, however, as he struggled to an 8.53 ERA and a 9:9 K:BB in four starts before being shut down with triceps tendinitis. Beating out Vince Velasquez for the Phillies' fifth starter spot is certainly not an insurmountable task if Nova is fully healthy, though he won't be a particularly exciting fantasy option if he does win the job, as he's been a low-strikeout innings eater for the bulk of his career.

      Tigers' Ivan Nova: Heading to injured list

      The Detroit Tigers announced Saturday that they are placing Ivan Nova on the 10-day injured list with right triceps tendinitis and are recalling Anthony Castro from their alternate training site in a corresponding move.Less than 24 hours after getting walloped for eight runs, Nova is headed to the IL. While he didn't last long during his outing, there were no initial reports saying that he had been experiencing any discomfort in his arm. Many fans were hoping the Tigers would promote Casey Mize, but that does not appear to be the case as of yet. Nova is eligible to return Aug. 25, although it has not been confirmed whether he will return after the minimum 10 days or if he will need extended time on the shelf.
