Ricky Nolasco has avoided arbitration by agreeing to a 1-year, $3.8 million deal.
Ricky Nolasco, who started on Opening Day this past season, has reached agreement on a one-year, $3.8 million contract, avoiding arbitration.
In his second year of arbitration, Nolasco is coming off an up-and-down campaign where he finished 13-9 with a 5.06 ERA.
"Ricky was dominant at times in 2009, and I think you're going to see Ricky have a really, really good year in 2010," said Matt Sosnick, Nolasco's agent.
A $1.4 million raise? I think I'm in the wrong business. Then again, my slider needs some work.
