The Minnesota Twins and pitcher Ricky Nolasco agreed to a four-year deal worth $49 million, with a club option for a fifth year, reports Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports.

According to the report, Nolasco will make $12 million a season from 2014-17, and the club option is worth $13 million with a $1 million buyout.
