The San Francisco Giants, winners of two of the past four World Series’ are looking to improve the back end of their rotation and have set their sights on Ricky Nolasco, this according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.
#SFGiants offering Nolasco three years.
Nolasco’s agent has reported that the starting pitcher has received multiple four year contracts, but the Giants could be hoping that Nolasco’s ties to the Bay Area could sway him to take a three year offer.
It was reported that the Giants were heavily interested in acquiring Nolasco from the Miami Marlins prior to the 2013 MLB trade deadline, though would not pay the price requested by the Marlins.
Nolasco, at the time, said it would be nice to return to the area where he grew up to pitch so it’s possible the Giants could be attempting to use ‘home field’ to their advantage.
The 31-year-old pitcher is coming off a 13-11 season with a 3.70 ERA. He is said to be seeking a contract worth $80 million dollars over five years.
