The Yankees continued selling all the way up to Monday’s deadline. They’re sending starter Ivan Nova to the Pirates, Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball reports.

Nova, 29, hasn’t had a particularly good season as he’s put up a 4.90 ERA with a 75/25 K/BB ratio in 97 1/3 innings. However, he’ll provide depth at the back of the Pirates’ rotation, something they sorely need.

Nova is earning $4.1 million this year and can become a free agent at season’s end.

We’ll update you once we learn who’s headed to the Yankees from the Pirates.
