White Sox's Ivan Nova: Gives up three homers, wins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (10-12) allowed three runs on six hits while striking out three over 5.2 innings Tuesday to earn the win over the Royals.

Nova allowed three home runs, running his season total to 30, but he managed to limit the damage and halted a personal three-game losing streak. It was the eighth time in 30 starts that he's surrendered multiple long balls. Nova will next pitch Sunday on the road in Seattle.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Hit hard by Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (9-12) allowed six earned runs on 11 hits and two walks while striking out one across 4.1 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Indians.

Nova was hit hard throughout the outing, allowing multiple baserunners in all five innings he appeared. After a strong six-start stretch spanning July 22 to Aug. 24, Nova has come back to earth in his last two outings by allowing 10 earned runs and 19 hits across 8.1 innings. He now owns a 4.69 ERA and 1.44 WHIP across 167 frames for the campaign and will draw his next start Tuesday against Kansas City.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Ambushed by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (9-11) took the loss Friday as the White Sox were downed 10-7 by Atlanta, allowing five runs (four earned) on eight hits and two walks over four innings. He failed to strike out a batter.

A four-run second inning accounted for most of the damage, as Nova got tagged for more than two runs in a start for the first time since July 17. The veteran right-hander will carry a 4.48 ERA and 97:40 K:BB through 162.2 innings into his next outing Wednesday in Cleveland.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Falls short of quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (9-10) took the loss Saturday, giving up two runs (one earned) on six hits while striking out six over 5.2 innings as the White Sox fell 4-0 to the Rangers.

The right-hander was locked in a duel with Kolby Allard through five innings, but after a Tim Anderson error put Elvis Andrus on with one out in the sixth, Nova served up a homer to Willie Calhoun that broke open the scoreless tie and ended his winning streak at five. Nova still has a 0.94 ERA and 25:7 K:BB in 48 innings over his last seven starts, but he'll face a tough test in his next outing Friday in Atlanta.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Stays hot, picks up ninth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (9-9) picked up the win against the Twins on Monday, giving up two earned runs on 10 hits over 5.1 innings, striking out two and walking one as the White Sox prevailed 6-4.

He had to work out of trouble a lot thanks to the 10 hits, but the right-hander managed to limit the damage and emerge with his ninth win of the season. Nova has been on a roll of late, as he's now remarkably yielded just four earned runs over his last 44.1 innings, bringing his ERA down from 5.49 to 4.47 over that stretch. He'll have his next chance to keep it going in a Saturday home matchup against the Rangers.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Goes distance for eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (8-9) picked up the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Astros, allowing only one unearned run on four hits over nine innings while striking out three in a 4-1 victory.

A Tim Anderson error in the third inning was the only thing standing between Nova and the fourth shutout of his career. The right-hander does have two complete games in his last five starts, and he's produced a remarkable 0.49 ERA and 0.70 WHIP over that stretch -- as well as a 4-0 record -- despite a minuscule 4.1 K/9. Nova will try to keep things rolling in his next outing Monday in Minnesota.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Eight shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (7-9) allowed five hits and three walks while striking out one across eight scoreless innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Tigers.

Nova wasn't particularly dominant but held the Tigers scoreless on the strength of 13 groundball outs. While he still has a 4.80 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season, Nova has now allowed one or fewer earned runs in each of his last four starts -- totaling two earned runs across 28 innings. While impressive, he's racked up just 14 punchouts in that span. He'll look to keep his strong run going in his next start in a tough matchup against Houston on Tuesday.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Tosses five strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings Friday night against the Phillies. He didn't factor into the decision.

Nova served up a solo home run in the third inning, though it would be the only run he'd surrender in his outing. The 32-year-old right-hander has yielded just one run in each of his last three outings, but he still owns a 5.10 ERA with 85 strikeouts across 130.2 innings this season.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Wins second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (6-9) picked up the win in Saturday's 5-1 victory over the Twins, allowing one unearned run on two hits and a walk over six innings while striking out four.

Fantasy GMs who rolled the dice on Nova this week as a streaming option were amply rewarded, as -- including Monday's complete game against the Marlins -- the right-hander went 2-0 with a 0.60 ERA, 0.47 WHIP and 9:1 K:BB in 15 innings. Nova will look to keep his momentum going in his next outing Friday in Philadelphia.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Delivers complete game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (5-9) gave up one run on four hits and no walks while striking out five in a complete game to take the win over the Marlins on Monday.

It only took Nova 112 pitches to deliver a stellar performance, shutting down the Marlins in his first complete game this season. This was a surprising outing as the 32-year-old has a 5.49 ERA with a 5.8 K/9 and a 2.3 BB/9 through 21 starts this season. Nova will make his next start Saturday against the Twins at Guaranteed Rate Field.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (4-9) was charged with the loss Wednesday against the Royals after surrendering six runs on six hits and five walks and recording two strikeouts over 4.2 innings.

Nova got off to a messy start by giving up a pair of runs on four hits and a walk in the first inning. The 32-year-old settled down until his fifth and final frame, when he allowed three straight two-out walks and a two-run single to Jorge Soler to hand the Royals a 5-0 lead. Nova was pulled after 84 pitches and replaced by Jace Fry, who surrendered the final run charged to Nova on a single by Soler. It was an atypical outing for Nova, who issued a season-high five walks. The right-hander has walked more than two batters just four times in 20 starts this year and owns a 5.86 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 72:31 K:BB. He'll look to bounce back during a home matchup against Miami on Monday.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: No support in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (4-8) took the loss Friday, allowing four runs on 10 hits in six innings. He struck out four in the 5-1 loss to the Athletics.

Nova gave up three homers in the contest, while the White Sox didn't get on the board until the ninth inning. Nova's at a 5.60 ERA and 1.54 WHIP through 106 innings this year. The 32-year-old is expected to face the Royals on Wednesday, which is a matchup that could help get the right-hander back in the win column.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Moves to 4-7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (4-7) allowed five hits and a walk in 5.2 innings of shutout baseball Sunday, striking out four and earning the win over the Cubs.

It was Nova's first scoreless outing of the season, and he really needed it. The 32-year-old dropped his ERA from 5.92 to 5.58 in 100 innings this season. He allowed a double and a walk in the sixth frame before being removed with 95 pitches. Nova's next turn will depend on how the White Sox align their rotation following the All-Star break.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Next starting coming Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Cubs at home.

After the White Sox's series opener with the Tigers was rained out Tuesday, Nova was initially pushed back to start the series finale Thursday. Manager Rick Renteria ultimately decided to alter the team's pitching schedule, instead turning to Reynaldo Lopez for Thursday's outing while Nova was handed the nod for Chicago's final game before the All-Star break. Nova has failed to turn in a quality start in any of his last seven outings but has at least averted disaster each time out, working at least five innings and giving up no more than four earned runs.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Hit with seventh loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (4-7) took the loss Saturday as the White Sox were downed 10-3 by the Twins. He struck out six and allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings.

The right-hander was taken deep twice, including a two-run shot by Nelson Cruz in the first inning -- a blast that set the tone for the afternoon, as every Chicago pitchers who took the mound served up at least one homer. Nova will carry a 5.92 ERA and 62:25 K:BB over 94.1 innings into his next start Thursday, at home against the Tigers.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Yields five runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova (3-6) allowed five runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk, while striking out six, in six innings Sunday to take the loss against Texas.

Most of the damage against Nova came during a four-run second inning when he allowed homers to Tim Federowicz and Danny Santana. Oddly enough, his season ERA actually dropped from 6.01 to 5.91. On top of that, his 58:24 K:BB doesn't inspire much confidence. Nova will face a lethal Twins lineup at home Saturday.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Works five innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out one across five innings Tuesday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.

Nova's lone earned run came on a solo home run by Kyle Schwarber, the first batter he faced in the game. From there, he held the Cubs without an extra-base hit despite generating just three swinging strikes. Even after the strong performance, Nova has a 6.01 ERA and 1.58 WHIP across 82.1 innings for the campaign. He'll draw his next start in a tough environment on Sunday, traveling to Texas to take on the Rangers.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Takes no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova took a no-decision in Thursday's win over the Yankees, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five through 5.2 innings.

The 32-year-old held his former Yankees team to one run over six innings earlier this season, but he couldn't make it happen this time. Nova handed the Yankees a 2-0 lead in the second inning thanks to a wild pitch and an RBI single by Clint Frazier. Then in the fourth, he gave up a two-run homer to Brett Gardner. Luckily, the White Sox worked their way out of the 4-0 deficit, but Nova left the game with the score still tied, 4-4. It's been a rough June for the right-hander, who's coughed up 11 runs in 18 innings. He'll carry a 6.28 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 51:21 K:BB into a Tuesday matchup at the Cubs.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Strikes out six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova took a no-decision Friday against the Royals after allowing four runs on six hits and a walk while striking out six through 5.1 innings.

The 32-year-old had only given up one run against Kansas City over five innings during his last start against them in May, but Friday was a different story. Nova started off strong, retiring the first six batters until Nicky Lopez touched him up for a leadoff double in the third. Overall, Nova looked solid through five innings and carried a 2-1 lead into the sixth, when he allowed three consecutive hits including a double by Adalberto Mondesi to tie the game at 2-2. He then struck out Jorge Soler but walked Ryan O'Hearn, who would be his final batter of the night. The right-hander will carry a 6.28 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 46:19 K:BB into a Thursday showdown with the Yankees.

White Sox's Ivan Nova: Hit by grounder, stays in game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nova took a groundball off his left forearm during the fifth inning Saturday but remained in the game, Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Trainers visited Nova following the incident, and he was deemed fine to continue. It may have been a different story had the grounder hit him on his pitching arm. Nova said the forearm was sore following the game.
