Yankees Will Bring Nova Back for 2016

The New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman told reporters that he is immediately working on 2016 after the tough loss in the Wild Card game last night in the Bronx. One decision for that 2016 season has already been made, Ivan Nova will be with the team in some capacity next season. Nova enters his final season of team control and arbitration after making $3.3 million in 2015 and the Yankees intend to tender him a contract for 2016.

Nova pitched through his first year removed from Tommy John surgery this season and had his ups and his downs. Nova looked flat out dominant at times and at other times he was looking like an 11-game loser and a pitcher bound for the bullpen. Nova will receive a contract but that doesn't mean he won't be traded later but if he sticks with the team into spring training he joins a laundry list of names vying for the starting rotation including Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, Luis Severino, Nathan Eovaldi, Adam Warren, Chase Whitley, Brady Lail, Bryan Mitchell and CC Sabathia to name a few.
