Nathan pitched in 48 games (0 starts) for the Twins last year and he was 2-1 with 14 saves, a 4.84 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. Nathan came on strong in the second half of last year as he started to regain his form from Tommy John Surgery. Nathan has now pitched in 581 games (29 starts) in his first 11 years in the show and he is 48-23 with 261 saves, a 2.87 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. Nathan will likely take over a the closer for the Rangers, who will likely move Neftali Feliz to the rotation to replace C.J. Wilson.
