Twins Agree To Terms With Ricky Nolasco


Recommended Posts

By Steve Adams [November 27 at 4:51pm CST]

The Twins have agreed to terms with right-hander Ricky Nolasco, according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish (Twitter link). Nolasco is a client of Sosnick/Cobbe Sports.

Nolasco split the 2013 season between the Marlins and Dodgers, totaling a 3.70 ERA with 7.4 K/9, 2.1 BB/9 and a 43 percent ground-ball rate. The soon-to-be 31-year-old was one of the earliest players to be moved this July, as the Dodgers sent a trio of minor leaguers (Josh Wall, Steve Ames and Angel Sanchez) and paid the roughly $6MM remaining in Nolasco's salary.

Just for what  its worth, this is what was on MBLTR

 

 

While terms of the deal haven't surfaced at this time, Nolasco figures to shatter Josh Willingham's three-year, $21MM contract -- the Twins' previous record contract for a free agent. MLBTR's Tim Dierkes' most recent projection for Nolasco's contract was in the range of Edwin Jackson's four-year, $52MM deal.

 

MLBTR's Tim Dierkes first reported that the Twins were on the verge of a significant free agent signing.

Edwin Jackson is another disaster contract. The guy played for 8 different teams, being traded away by 6 of them before landing that contract with the Cubs. There was nothing In his resume that warranted that contract and yet Theo Epstein felt it was a good deal.

Have to see what he signed for to determine whether this made sense or not.

 

Nolasco pitched well for Dodgers after coming over and won about 8 games down the stretch in August/ September -- sort of cooled off at the end and in the playoffs.

 

Seems like starting pitching is at a premium so I think most of us will consider the contact over market when it may actually be setting the (higher) market.

 

Assume this is at least a two year deal......perhaps 2 @ $12 million. Hard to say.........we'll wait and see.
