AP source: Nolasco gets $26.5M deal with Marlins
MIAMI (AP) - The Florida Marlins may have a starting pitcher for Game 2 in their new ballpark.
Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco has agreed to a $26.5 million, three-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations said Monday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the contract won’t become final until Nolasco passes a physical.
Nolasco gets $6 million next season, $9 million in 2012 and $11.5 million in 2013.
Nolasco made $3.8 million last season, when he went 14-9 with a 4.51 ERA. He missed the final month after undergoing arthroscopic right knee surgery but is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.
Florida’s rotation next season will also include Anibal Sanchez, Chris Volstad and newcomer Javier Vazquez, a veteran who this month signed a $7 million, one-year deal. The perennially thrifty Marlins are projected to have a payroll of about $55 million, the same as this year.
