MIAMI (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says right-hander Ricky Nolasco has agreed to a three-year contract with the Florida Marlins.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because the contract won’t become final until Nolasco passes a physical. Another person familiar with the deal said it was worth about $26 million.

The agreement further solidifies the Marlins‘ rotation as they prepare to open a new ballpark in 2012. Ace Josh Johnson has three years remaining on a $39 million contract he signed a year ago

Nolasco is 54-39 in five years with the Marlins. Last season he went 14-9 with a 4.51 ERA.

Florida’s rotation next season will also include Anibal Sanchez, Chris Volstad and newcomer Javier Vazquez.
