Being a two pitch pitcher has killed Nova. There's no reason given that he no longer throws the four seam fastball, nor, has he truly given his changeup a chance. Fastball/slider rarely gets it done as a starter. But, there is a possibility of Nova working from the pen, replacing Warren and Wilson as the 6th or 7th inning guy. In that capacity, Nova doesn't have to go thru the complete order, and it may give him a spot. It might also allow Nova to reach back, throw a little harder, knowing he doesn't have to go more than six outs, tops. He could be interesting in this role.
