9/7:Pittsburgh Pirates starter Ivan Nova will throw a side session today and could rejoin the rotation on Sunday in St. Louis. Nova had his latest turn skipped in order to provide some rest, both physical and mental. Nova has struggled mightily in the second half, posting a 6.38 ERA, 1.69 WHIP, and .332 BAA in nine starts since the All-Star break. While his strikeout rate has actually gone up, his ground ball rate has dipped. As someone who typically pitches to contact in order to avoid walking batters, this trend could be troublesome. It's best to avoid Nova until he shows signs of correcting his previously successful form.--Pierre Camus - RotoBaller
