Nova could be the next pitcher traded by the Yankees, the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nova, who will be a free agent at the end of the season, makes perfect sense as a trade option for the Yankees, who picked up a potential replacement in Adam Warren as part of the Aroldis Chapman trade. His home run problem has been particularly ad this season, as he owns a 1.7 HR/9 that would be his worst in any campaign in his career with more than 25 innings pitched if it doesn't improve. A trade could send him to a more favorable pitchers' park, but he hasn't posted a K/9 above 8.0 since 2012, so even that might be enough to fix what ails him.

Nova did not factor into the decision in Saturday's extra-inning loss to the Giants, surrendering an earned run on six hits and two walks over seven innings. He struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old was even better than in his previous start, when he gave up just an earned run over six innings against Baltimore on Monday. Nova went the longest he has in a game all season, while also equaling his second-best strikeout total. The 29-year-old seems to have found some stability in July, giving up only an earned run in three of his last four starts while generating a 2-0 record. He'll look to continue his recent success when he takes on the Rays next Friday.

Nova (7-5) earned the win on Monday, holding the Orioles to one run in six innings. He allowed four hits, walked three, and struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Nova had a disastrous June, posting a 7.52 ERA over five starts. However, in two of his three starts this month he has allowed just a single run. Nova has also struck out 17 over those three starts. He'll carry a 4.92 ERA into his start this Saturday against the Giants.

Nova (6-5) allowed four runs on five hits while striking out six over 5.1 innings to earn the win Thursday at the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Nova allowed a pair of runs in both the third and sixth innings, and he left the contest with a 5-4 lead that the bullpen was able to hold onto, leading him to his sixth victory of the year. He's now failed to complete six innings in any of his last five starts while allowing at least four runs in four of those outings to raise his ERA to 5.18 on the season. He'll make his next start after the All-Star break.

Nova allowed four runs in five innings in a no-decision against the Rangers on Monday. He surrendered six hits, walked three, and struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Nova has not had a June to remember. This month he has recorded just one quality start and has failed to complete six innings in any of his last three starts. The 29-year-old has allowed at least one home run in each of his last 10 starts, bringing his ERA to an inflated 5.32. His next start will come Saturday against the Padres.

Nova (5-5) was rocked for six runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks with just one strikeout in four innings during Tuesday's loss to Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Nova hasn't fared well against the Rockies, dropping consecutive decisions to them while allowing 11 runs in just nine innings. Other competition hasn't been much kinder to the 29-year-old lately, as he has allowed at least three runs in six straight starts. Monday's home date with the Rangers doesn't offer significant hope of breaking that streak.

Nova (5-4) allowed five runs on 10 hits, struck out five, and walked two over 5.0 innings in a loss to the Rockies on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander has won his last two appearances, but still allowed eight runs and three homers in 12.1 innings. Wednesday wasn't any different, as Nova allowed another homer and a season-high 10 hits. Nova hasn't yielded fewer than three runs in an outing since May 19. He will try to break that streak in his next start Tuesday versus the Rockies again.

Nove (5-3) pitched 6.1 innings, allowing three runs, six hits and a walk while striking out five in Thursday's victory over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

For the fifth consecutive start, the 29-year-old Dominican gave the Yanks six-plus innings. Although he hasn't been great, Nova has done a fine job filling a hole in the team's rotation. He's giving manager Joe Girardi exactly what he's looking for - a quality arm who can get the Bombers to the seventh inning. He'll have a tough task in his next outing as he's scheduled to start Wednesday at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Nova (4-3) grabbed the win Saturday, going six innings with six strikeouts while allowing five runs against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Nova was cruising along for a while, as all five runs of the damage were done in the seventh inning. The 29-year-old figures to keep his spot in the rotation for the foreseeable future, as Luis Severino was sent down to the minors earlier in the week. Nova's next start is slated to come Thursday against the Angels.

Nova (3-3) allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk with four strikeouts over six innings in a loss Monday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Nova had solid control but was punished for his mistakes in the zone, as he surrendered four doubles and a home run. He has given up six home runs in just five starts this year, continuing a problem he has had for his entire career (1.1 HR/9 in 668.2 innings). Nova's control has been elite -- he has issued just six walks in 43 innings -- but it won't matter if the strikes he throws continue to be so hittable.
