The Rangers locked up Joe Nathan to a two year deal and now that the physical is out of the way, we can take a look at the numbers. He’ll be paid $14.75 million and there’s also a club option for a third year at $9 million. This is quite a bit for a guy who’s a year removed from missing a season. In addition, there’s another $1 million in incentives that could come into play.
Last year, Nathan struck out 43 in 44 2/3 innings for a bad Twins team. He saved 14 and had an ERA of 4.84. Of course the big news out of this is that Neftali Felix will now become a starter and Nathan will slip into the closer role for the Rangers.
