IVAN NOVA GETS A 1 YEAR DEAL
Nothing major here, just keeping the Yankee and BYB fan base in the loop. It turns out the Yankees have agreed to a 1 year deal with Ivan Nova. According to several sources, but we'll go with the Associated Press here:
"Ivan Nova and the Yankees have agreed to a $4.1 million, one-year contract and avoided salary arbitration.
The agreement Thursday was $100,000 under the midpoint: Nova had asked for $4.6 million in arbitration and the Yankees had offered $3.8 million. He can make the $100,000 back in performance bonuses. Nova is sixth on the Yankees’ starting pitching depth chart..."
Nothing wrong with that deal. Nova can be a help. I guess the Yankees just couldn't find a trade partner for Nova and they'll keep him around and he'll definitely contribute. If a deal can come together by the trade deadline though, that contract is easy to flip.
Glad all is well in Yankeeland. Good to see they came to an agreement with Nova.
