New York Daily News "It’s a sunny morning outside the Yankee training complex, and the big man who wears No. 47 is flush with optimism. He has a new, surgically repaired elbow. He has a new baseball season before him. Why would Ivan Nova want to revisit his last time on a big-league mound, which came 10 months ago,..." February 04

He will earn $3.3MM, per a tweet from the New York Post’s Joel Sherman, matching the MLBTR/Matt Swartz projection.

New York Post "On a night they pummeled home plate with cleat marks after smooching it once in each the previous three games, it turned out the Yankees didn’t need more than two runs. That’s because Ivan Nova’s second consecutive sensational start was backed by Robinson Cano’s three-run homer and Lyle..." July 11
New York Post "Ivan Nova thought his relief stint Saturday night in the Yankees’ 11-3 loss to the Orioles was “good.’’ Yet considering Joe Girardi is not going to insert the right-hander into the rotation — something the manager said he was going to do against the Twins this week — Nova’s outing wasn’t good..." July 01
New York Post "Ivan Nova is staying around a little longer than planned. Nova, summoned six days ago for a start against the Rays because of the workload strain a doubleheader placed on the Yankees rotation, earned at least one more start through his impressive outing. “We’re looking at the schedule..." June 29
New York Post "Ivan Nova delivered his best start of the season Sunday and Michael Pineda is scheduled to make a rehab start for Double-A Trenton tonight, so the Yankees’ starting rotation soon could look significantly different. However, general manager Brian Cashman said changes are not yet in the works —..." June 25
Hardball Talk "Ivan Nova went 16-4 with a 3.70 ERA for the Yankees as a 24-year-old in 2011, convincing quite a few people that he was a future star, but he’s been terrible since then and now he’s headed back to Triple-A. Nova, who hasn’t pitched in the minors since 2011, was demoted in tandem with the..." May 31
New York Post "Joe Girardi said it’s imperative to get Ivan Nova back to being an effective pitcher, but the Yankees manager is sticking with Vidal Nuno for Saturday’s start against the Rays at Tropicana Field. Activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, Nova took a seat in the bullpen. Because long man..." May 25

New York Post "Brian Cashman knows the Yankees’ quick turnaround after their 1-4 start was important not just because of the standings, but because it helped his team breathe a little easier. “We just don’t want to turn up the heat on ourselves,” the general manager said. “There’s an avalanche of negativity..." April 16
New York Daily News "Ivan Nova is headed to the bullpen — for a few days, anyway. The Yankees and Indians were rained out Wednesday night in Cleveland. Nova had been slated to start, but Joe Girardi said he would skip Nova’s turn in the rotation and start Phil Hughes on Thursday as scheduled. “If you start..." April 11
New York Post "Ivan Nova can lap up Mariano Rivera’s tough love. He can shorten the path his arm travels during his delivery. In the end, however, whatever Nova becomes or doesn’t become will be up to the 26-year-old right-hander. As a rookie for the Yankees in 2011, Nova went 16-4 with a 3.70 ERA. He started..." March 13
New York Post "If Phil Hughes can’t post the first trip through the rotation, Ivan Nova would have to turn into Jeff Juden to not make the Yankees’ Opening Day roster.

Bergen Record "Competition for the No. 5 starting rotation slot began quietly Thursday morning with David Phelps pitching to live hitters in a light rain.

Newark Star-Ledger "Do you like sabermetrics? I like sabermetrics. I appreciate how statistics underpin the game. You should remember this, going forward. As a sabermetrically-inclined person, I looked at some of Yankee starter Ivan Nova’s statistics and saw a pitcher who took a step forward in 2012. He raised his..." February 15
New York Daily News "Ivan Nova’s self-evaluation has its harsh side. He had “a bad year” in 2012, he said, and he “did a lot of things wrong on the mound.” But even his own withering criticism hasn’t crushed his confidence. No, despite regressing as a pitcher last year and a stubborn side that made him stick with..." February 07
