According to a report from Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the Minnesota Twins have signed free agent right-handed pitcher Ricky Nolasco.

The deal was not yet confirmed at the time, but has been since.

Nolasco spent 7 and one-half seasons with the Florida/Miami Marlins where he went 89-75 and compiled a 4.44 ERA in 197 starts.

He was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers on July 6th for Angel Sanchez, Steve Ames and Josh Wall.

After coming over to the National League West, Nolasco went 8-3 and posted a 3.52 ERA over 15 starts for the Dodgers.

Over his first 12 starts with his new team, Nolasco didn’t give up more than 3 earned runs.  Over his final three of the regular season, he gave up 5, 6 and 6 again.

Nolasco lasted 4 innings against the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS and gave up 3 earned runs while collecting the loss to close out his 2013 campaign.

There is no word on terms of the deal as of yet, but Nolasco’s agent reportedly wanted “’Edwin Jackson money’ (four years, $52 million)” according to Jeff Passan at Yahoo! Sports.

Nolasco will turn 31 on December 13th.
