Ivan Nova is a starting pitcher for the New York Yankees. He solidified himself in the Yankee rotation during the 2011 season after a seven-inning, six-hit, one-run, ten-strikeout, zero-walk performance against the Chicago White Sox. After this performance, manager Joe Girardi went with a six-man rotation, in place of the usual five-man rotation, in order to keep Ivan as a starter. Ivan went on to post a 8–0 record with a 3.18 ERA and the Yankees selected him for their three-man postseason starting rotation at the end of the 2011 season. Girardi named Ivan the starter in Game 2 of the 2011 American League Division Series. In the 2011 season, Ivan compiled a 16–4 record with the most wins for a Yankees rookie since Stan Bahnsen won seventeen games in 1968. He was named to the Baseball America All-Rookie Team following the season. As a member of the starting rotation for the 2012 season, Ivan won fifteen consecutive games from June 2011 through May 2012, one short of the franchise record set by Roger Clemens. Ivan surpassed the Yankees' rookie record of twelve consecutive wins, set by Atley Donald in 1939, during the 2011 season.
