The first Texas signing of the winter was All-Star Closer Mr. Joe Nathan. The 37-year-old 4-time All-Star decided he wanted to be in Arlington after a four-hour dinner in the D/FW with Ranger’s General Manager Jon Daniels, Assistant GM Thad Levine and team President Nolan Ryan recently.
The 2-year contract is worth 14 million and will include a team option for a third year that would give Joe 9 million. This move will give the Rangers 100 percent commitment to making the young Neftali Feliz the best starting pitcher he can be. Nathan is 100 percent healthy after surgery a year ago and will look to rebound to the 35 to 50 save season we are accustomed to.
