Player Notes
Ivan Nova allowed a run over 5 1/3 innings against the Cubs on Thursday, getting a gift of a complete game in a 1-1 tie.

Advice: With the skies opened up and neither team playing for much -- the Bucs already eliminated from the postseason, the Cubs already owning home-field advantage through the NLCS -- the two teams decided to call it a night. Nova allowed four hits and didn't issue a free pass while striking out five before the rain came. The start brings to a close a successful career revitalization for the 29-year-old, who posted a 3.06 ERA with the Pirates after struggling early as a member of the Yankees. Nova owned a 4.17 ERA and 1.25 WHIP overall, and will be an interesting free agent case this winter.

Ivan Nova allowed six runs on eight hits over four innings in a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

Advice: For the second straight start, Nova struggled and is now 5-2 with a 3.64 ERA as a member of the Pirates. He'd been absolutely lights out prior to his last start, though, and the Bucs have reportedly been impressed enough to approach the 29-year-old about a contract extension. Nova will have one more opportunity to make his case for a big payday when he squares off with the Cubs on Thursday.

Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Pirates have made several contract offers to impending free agent Ivan Nova.

Advice: The 29-year-old hurler has been outstanding since joining the Pirates, compiling a 2.93 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 45/3 K/BB across 55 1/3 innings. Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage has made a living out of reclaiming broken down pitchers, and Nova appears to be his latest success story. Locking him up would appear to be a wise investment.
