Yankees | Ivan Nova goes seven strong

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 18:17:39 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova allowed one run on six hits while walking two and striking out seven over seven innings in a no-decision against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Nova is having a great July, and he has allowed just one run in three of his four starts. His overall numbers remain ugly, but he is worth grabbing in AL-only formats.

Rangers | Texas looking at Yankee starters

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 11:13:47 -0700

New York Yankees SPs Nathan Eovaldi, Ivan Nova and CC Sabathia are being scouted by the Texas Rangers because New York might be willing to part with one of their starters for a second-tier Texas prospect.

Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi and Sabathia have flashed signs of brilliance this season, but neither look the part of a reliable starter currently. And Nova has been an underwhelming pitcher all season. There is potential for a slight fantasy boost wearing a new uniform, and Texas is a contender, but it wouldn't catapult any one of the trio into the must-start category. Stay tuned for updates.

Yankees | Ivan Nova picks up seventh win

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 20:49:37 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova allowed one earned run, four hits and three walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a win against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, July 18. He threw 56 of his 97 pitches in the quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Nova has won back-to-back starts for the third time this season. He is now 2-0 with a 3.24 ERA in three July starts, re-emerging as a solid AL-only play, as well as deeper mixed league option.

Yankees | Nathan Eovaldi, Ivan Nova facing O's

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 14:53:15 -0700

New York Yankees SPs Ivan Nova and Nathan Eovaldi will start against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, July 18, and Tuesday, July 19, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Both Yankee hurlers have an ERA north of 5.00, and against one of the best offenses in baseball, Nova and Eovaldi are desperation fantasy options for their next outings. They remain viable arms in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but you'll want to be extremely selective with their matchups in shallower formats.

Yankees | Ivan Nova defeats Cleveland Thursday

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 19:39:48 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova (6-5) allowed four runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings in a victory over the Cleveland Indians Thursday, July 7, with no walks and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Despite beating the club with the second-best record in the American League, Nova is not worth rostering outside of AL-only fantasy leagues. He has only posted one quality start in his last nine outings and has not made it out of the seventh inning in any of his 12 starts this year.

Yankees | Ivan Nova whiffs seven in no-decision

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 22:58:27 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova allowed one earned run, four hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Saturday, July 2, against the San Diego Padres. He threw 51 of his 77 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Nova hasn't been going very deep into games, pitching 5 1/3 or fewer innings in each of his past four outings. He is only worth using in AL-only fantasy formats and as a mid-tier option in DFS play.

Rangers | Ian Desmond remains red-hot

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 23:57:54 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond extended his hitting streak to nine games Monday, June 27, with a first-inning solo blast off New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova. Desmond added an RBI groundout in the third to lift his team-high RBI total to 51.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond is batting .406 with four home runs, seven RBI and has scored eight times during his streak. He is slashing .321/.373/.532 after Monday's victory, which was delayed in the ninth inning for nearly as long (three hours, 35 minutes) as the game actually lasted (three hours, 43 minutes). As a top-five fantasy player regardless of position who is lighting it up in each of the five major offensive categories, he should be starting in every league.

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.
