Update (4:47 PM EDT): The Yankees will receive two players to be named later, per the Pirates on Twitter.
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.
