Bits: Nova showing signs of improvement

New York Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova hurled eight strong innings against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, allowing one run in his best performance of the season. Nova has induced 13 ground ball outs in each of his past two starts and permitted only one home run. If he continues this trend, his 1.47 WHIP can drop quite a bit, making him standard mixed-league worthy.
