Dombrowski: Joe Nathan still Tigers closer heading into 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tigers general manager and president Dave Dombrowski has proclaimed embattled right-hander Joe Nathan as the team's closer in 2015 despite plans to bolster what was a terrible bullpen this season.

"I would think he starts as our closer going into it," Dombrowski told MLive.com. "But he has to perform up to the capabilities required of doing it."

Nathan struggled mightily in his first season with Detroit after signing a two-year deal worth $20 million. He converted 35 of 42 save opportunities, but finished with a 4.81 ERA. He did bring it down from 5.61 at the All-Star break, but lost velocity and recorded a 1.56 WHIP in the second half.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers closer Joe Nathan gave up two hits Saturday but was able to strand runners on second and third base to earn his 33rd save in his team's 3-2 win over the Royals.

Nathan allowed a pair of one-out singles before a groundout advanced both runners and put the potential tying run just 90 feet away. Nathan was able to get the next batter to ground out to first base and give his team a win, increasing the Tigers' lead to two-and-a-half games over the Royals in the AL Central. Nathan owns a 5.01 ERA and 52:28 K:BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings.

Joe Nathan blows save in loss vs. Twins
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers closer Joe Nathan blew a save opportunity and took a loss Tuesday, allowing two earned runs on two hits and one walk in two-thirds of an inning in his team's 4-3 defeat against the Twins.

A well-pitched game turned into a wild one in the ninth inning Tuesday, as Nathan (4-4) followed up a blown save on a three-run home run against Glen Perkins with his own troubles in the bottom of the ninth. The Twins delivered the tying run on a one-out double and earned the win with a walkoff infield single. Nathan has given up runs in back-to-back appearances and now owns a 5.10 ERA and 52:28 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings.
