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.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
