Twins | Clauses in Ricky Nolasco contract
Sat, 30 Nov 2013 01:00:27 -0800
The $49 million deal signed by Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco will give him a partial no-trade clause that will allow him to block trades to three clubs. That list of clubs can change each year. Sources also indicate Nolasco will need 400 combined innings pitched in 2016 and 2017 for his $13 million option to vest for 2018. Nolasco has never cracked 400 innings in a two-year span, but he's come within three innings twice (2008-09, 2011-12).
