Minnesota Twins pushing hard for Ricky Nolasco

In my opinion, the off-season for Major League Baseball is just as exciting as the post-season is. There are always transactions that take everybody by surprise and it gets us pumped up for Spring Training.

Right handed starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco was sure to draw some interest from some teams in the league after posting a somewhat decent 3.70 ERA with a 13-11 win/loss record and striking out 165 batters.

Now Nolasco isn’t the type of guy you would see as a number one, two or three starter but he could fit perfectly somewhere near the bottom of the starting rotation pending break out year.

According to Ken Rosenthal on Twitter, the Minnesota Twins seem to be a front runner for Nolasco and are currently making a strong push to bring him on board.

Word is that he currently has multiple four year deals on the table right now and Minnesota more than likely has more money piled on top of it. It’ll be interesting to find out who the rest of the teams are, but he may end up with the Twins when it’s all said and done.
