Multiple Sources: Twins Agree Agree to Terms with Ricky Nolasco

Greg Fiume

Reliable sources are starting to report an agreement between the Twins and Ricky Nolasco.

After Chris Cotillo of SB Nation's Daily Dish reported that this agreement with Ricky Nolasco was nearing completion, it took more than an hour for information to trickle in. While the Twins have yet to confirm this signing, and are unlikely to do so until Nolasco passes his physical, a number of reliable sources are now reporting the upcoming signing.

MLB Daily Dish: Twins Agree to Sign Ricky Nolasco

Any contract for Nolasco is guaranteed to break Josh Willingham's current franchise record deal for a free agent. His three-year, $21 million dollar contract on December 15, 2011, was by far the organization's high-water mark in free agency, but some of the more reliable sources projected Nolasco to land a deal in the four-year, $50 million range. MLBTR's Tim Dierkes believes a four-year, $52 million dollar offer will be near market value.

Nolasco, 31 in December, has been worth 2.3 and 4.1 wins above replacement every year since 2008. His market value, in that time, has averaged $14.4 million per season. Oddly enough, that seems to be right around the top end of what some people on Twitter believe he could be fetching from the Twins.
