Chicago White Sox Acquire Ivan Nova (Giuseppe)

Chicago White Sox pitcher Ivan Nova was told he would need to pack his bags and head to Chicago on Tuesday after the White Sox struck a deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates for the starter.

Nova posted a 4.19 ERA through 161 innings across 29 starts in 2018. Nova will basically eat innings while the White Sox continue a lengthy rebuild in 2019. Nova should be expected to perform average at best but will be a solid middle of the rotation starter.

Nova has one-year left on his contract and is set to make $8.5 million in 2019. There has been no information as to who the Pirates will receive in the deal.
