Twins sign Nolasco to record contract


Durable and capable of dominant starts, right-hander Ricky Nolasco signed a record contract to become the stabilizing anchor of the Minnesota Twins’ starting rotation.

“I was interested in whoever was interested in me,” Nolasco said Tuesday. “The level that they showed from Day 1 was big for me. It was probably the most deciding factor in this process.”
