Yankees | Ivan Nova pounded by Rockies again

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 21:38:08 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova allowed six runs -- five earned -- on eight hits, including two home runs, against the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: Nova's line in two starts against Colorado: 9 IP, 18 H, 11 R, 10 ER, 3 HR, 4 BB, 6 K's. His struggles have spiked in the last two games but only one of his last six efforts has gone down as a quality start. Those in AL-only leagues can keep him around in case he comes around, but he's a non-entity in mixed formats.

Rockies | Ryan Raburn out vs. Yankees

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 13:21:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 21, against the New York Yankees. 2B Daniel Descalso is serving as designated hitter and will bat sixth against Yankees SP Ivan Nova.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Raburn on your bench accordingly. As for Descalso, he does not play enough to merit fantasy value, with only an occasional at-bat here and there.

Yankees | Ivan Nova roughed up by Rockies

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:41:57 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova allowed five runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out five batters through five innings during the Yankees' 6-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: Nova's ERA jumped from 4.39 to 4.77 with the rough outing in Coors Field Wednesday. He has now allowed 21 runs through 30 innings over his past five starts. Nova cannot be started with confidence outside of plus-matchups, and he shouldn't be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Yankees | Ivan Nova deteriorates quickly

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 09:32:08 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova has a 1.71 ERA in innings one to three in his seven starts this year, but his ERA balloons to 6.64 from the fourth inning on.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps this is because Nova started the year as a long reliever. In any event, he has a 4.14 ERA in his seven starts for the Yankees with 31 strikeouts in 41 1/3 innings. Nova has allowed at least three earned runs in his last four outings and should be avoided at Coors Field this afternoon.

Yankees | Ivan Nova not good of late

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 13:10:13 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova has given up at least four runs in each of his last three starts with a 6.27 ERA over that span. That comes after he had a run of three straight one-run starts.

Fantasy Tip: Nova has a 4.41 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and only 6.1 strikeouts per nine innings in his 12 outings (six starts) this year and is a middling option for those in AL-only setups. However, against a weak-hitting Angels lineup, he could be a solid contrarian play in daily games this evening. Nova has pitched better at home so far (2.22 ERA).

Yankees | Ivan Nova struggling with sinker

Tue, 31 May 2016 04:01:43 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova allowed four runs on eight hits while walking one and striking out four over six innings in a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Monday, May 30, and he said he has been having trouble keeping his sinker down in the zone. After allowing 17 fly balls in his first three starts, he has allowed 21 in his last two, both losses.

Fantasy Tip: Both of Nova's bad outings have come against Toronto, so the opponent could have something to do with it. His value is limited to AL-only leagues.

Yankees | Ivan Nova less than super in loss

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:02:24 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova took the loss against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday, May 25. He allowed four runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings and struck out eight. It was his first loss in four starts since joining the rotation earlier in May.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the loss there were some silver linings for Nova. He worked deeper into the game and threw a season-high 107 pitches, and the eight strikeouts matched his total from his first three starts combined. While he was never a big strikeout arm, Nova could up his fantasy profile by getting closer to his career mark of 6.57 K/9 as opposed to this year's 4.45 mark.

Yankees | Ivan Nova wins again

Fri, 20 May 2016 05:01:36 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova picked up his second win since moving into the starting rotation Thursday, May 19. The Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics, 4-1, as Nova pitched six innings, threw just 62 pitches, had three strikeouts and lowered his ERA to 1.65 in three starts.

Fantasy Tip: Nova has been very effective in place of CC Sabathia, and the team is climbing the American League East standings. So what is a manager to do? Joe Girardi has a dilemma on his hands. Nova has increased value because he can be used as a relief pitcher in fantasy lineups, even though he now starts. Keep him in your lineup as long as he stays in the rotation, but keep in mind Nova will lose value if removed.

Yankees | CC Sabathia won't be back soon

Fri, 06 May 2016 16:14:09 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (groin) is likely to be out longer than 15 days, according to manager Joe Girardi. "I think the last time he had this, he was out about three weeks," Girardi said. "I think you feel probably pretty fortunate if you could get him then." SP Ivan Nova will replace Sabathia in the rotation, according to Girardi. Nova will start against the Kansas City Royals Monday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: It's unfortunate for Sabathia after his best outing -- a seven-inning shutout -- came in his last start against the Orioles. Consider dropping him for better options in deep mixed leagues. Nova hasn't pitched well in relief (5.14 ERA in 14 innings) and is a flier in AL-only formats. It wouldn't be wise to buy low on Nova in daily affairs for his first start Monday.

Yankees | Ivan Nova logs first-career save

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 22:38:14 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova allowed a run and four hits in the final four innings Wednesday, April 6, against the Houston Astros for his first-career save and first relief appearance since June 29, 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Nova was solid in the spring, but he was the odd-man out in a numbers game. He was also very sharp in this opportunity, and he will likely be the first start summoned if and when an injury occurs to one of the team's first five starters.
