Ricky Nolasco gets a deal done

I have it on good authority from a source close to the Marlins that Ricky Nolasco just wrapped up a deal with the team, thus avoiding arbitration. Details weren’t disclosed, but I wouldn’t doubt it being a one-year offer at around where you’d expect for a second year arbitration pitcher. The source mentions that the deal should be officially announced later today.

UPDATE: As originally reported here, Nolasco has signed, according to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick (H/T MLBTR, whom I outscooped!). According to Crasnick, the deal is a one-year, $3.8M contract, constituting a raise of $1.4M (58% raise).
