Joe Nathan News Archive
Nathan picked up his second save of the season in Thursday's win over the Indians.
Nathan allowed three earned runs to the Dodgers Wednesday in route to his second blown save and second win of the season.
Nathan said Wednesday that he is dealing with a dead arm, MLive.com reports. "It's not an injury," Nathan said. "It's something that every pitcher goes through every year. It's not even newsworthy, so you guys shouldn't even waste your time writing about dead arm, because it's basically like knowing there's second base on the field."
Nathan blew a save opportunity against the Royals on Wednesday after giving up a run on one hit and a pair of walks.
Nathan struggled mightily in his outing Sunday, allowing four earned runs on five hits, one walk and hitting a batter in only 0.1 innings pitched.
