Detroit Lands Nathan 12/4/13
DETROIT - The Detroit Tigers have apparently solved their problem of having a reliable closer. The American League Central champs have agreed to terms with free agent reliever Joe Nathan on a two-year contract with a club option for 2016. Detroit's bullpen was unsettled for much of last season. Joaquin Benoit (wah-KEEN' behn-WAH') eventually performed well as the closer, but he is now a free agent. Nathan was with the Rangers last season.
