Cubs' Joe Nathan: Joins Double-A Tennessee on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nathan (elbow) will begin his rehab assignment with Double-A Tennessee, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Nathan signed a major league deal with the Cubs in mid-May, as has been recovering from Tommy John surgery that forced him to miss all of last season. The 41-year-old could be a huge boost to the club's bullpen if he can work his way back from the injury, and could join Chicago around the All-Star break if he is effective and everything goes according to plan.

Cubs' Joe Nathan: Working out in Chicago's Arizona complex
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nathan (elbow) is working out at Chicago's Arizona complex, Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago reports.

Nathan, who is returning from Tommy John surgery that forced him to miss the 2015 season, is still knee-deep into his rehab program. At 41 years old, age has to be considered a factor in whether he can return to big-league form again, but the veteran closer has had success in the majors as recently as 2014 when he saved 35 games for Detroit. Nathan working out in Arizona indicates that he's serious about making a major league return but that likely doesn't have a chance of happening until sometime after the All-Star break.

Cubs' Joe Nathan: Signs major league deal with Cubs on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nathan (elbow) signed a major league contract with the Cubs on Tuesday.

Nathan is still in the process of recovering from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last April, but the Cubs decided to take a flier on the veteran reliever and sign him for bullpen depth. The 41-year-old had been an effective closer, saving 35 games as recently as 2014, but he likely won't be able to contribute to the Cubs bullpen until the second half of the season. The Cubs moved him to the 60-day disabled list to avoid making any moves to their current 40-man roster.

Joe Nathan: Still hoping to pitch this season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nathan (elbow) is still working out in hopes of pitching in 2016, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

It was announced in February that Nathan would attempt to pitch again, and this serves as confirmation that his pursuit continues. It's not exactly clear where Nathan stands in his recovery, or where he may end up, but his workouts are reportedly going well, so he could still see action in an MLB game at some point this season.

Joe Nathan: Hopes to pitch in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joe Nathan (elbow) is progressing through workouts this winter with the hope of pitching in 2016, Fox Sports' Jon Morosi reports.

At age-41, Nathan is recovering from his second career Tommy John surgery. Most likely, teams interested in acquiring his services will be eyeing a return after the All-Star break, as it's reasonable to think that he'll need more than the typical minimum 12-month recovery window to get back on the mound in game situations after having the surgery in late April.
