The Chicago White Sox have acquired veteran right-hander Ivan Nova from the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league pitcher Yordi Rosario and international bonus pool money.
Nova, 31, has one year remaining on his current three-year $26 million deal and is owed $9.1 million in 2019. He went 9-9 with a 4.19 ERA for the Pirates last season and carries a 78-64 overall record over nine seasons. Nova began his career with the NY Yankees; the right-hander was the Pirates’ opening day starter in 2018.
