Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila has been looking to add another veteran pitcher to his team’s rotation. Yesterday he did just that.

The Tigers signed 11-year veteran Ivan Nova to a one-year deal worth $1.5 million.
“Ivan fits that need while also providing strong leadership in the clubhouse,” Avila said in a statement. “Ivan has a proven track record of reliability, throwing at least 160 innings in each of the last four seasons, and often puts his club in a position to win when he’s on the mound.”
Nova spent this past season with the Chicago White Sox. He had a 11-12 record with a 4.76 ERA in 34 starts.
