Joe Nathan: Pitches 'a lot livelier' in last outing
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

What Tigers veteran closer Joe Nathan described as a "dead arm period" is over, he told MLB.com after shutting down Cleveland for a save Thursday afternoon.

"Today was more how I felt, being able to finish," he said after retiring the Indians in order in the ninth. "My velocity is what it's going to be, but moreso I was locating where I wanted to. But it did feel like it was a lot livelier. There's different 91s, different 92s, but today, at least finishing pitches, it felt like it was jumping out of my hand better."

Nathan had yielded five earned runs, seven hits and four walks in his previous 3 1/3 innings covering four appearances.

Joe Nathan finally collects second save
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Just 12 days removed from his first save, Tigers closer Joe Nathan slammed the door shut on the Indians Thursday afternoon for his second save of the season.

Nathan entered the game in the ninth and forced Mike Aviles to foul out, followed by a Carlos Santana strikeout and a Michael Brantley fly out to end the game, securing a 7-5 victory. The right-hander has not allowed a run over his last five innings pitched. He owns a 7.94 ERA and 1.94 WHIP along with 4:4 K:BB ratio over 5 2/3 innings pitched.

Joe Nathan downplays "dead arm" comments
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Tigers closer Joe Nathan walked his earlier comments back Wednesday, telling MLB.com he is not concerned about the "dead arm" he told a local radio station he was dealing with.

"It's not an injury. It's something that every pitcher goes through every year," Nathan said. "It's not even newsworthy. 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 told MLB.com he is neither in pain nor particularly sore, and will just have to continue pitching until he feels better. He is averaging just 90.2 miles per hour on his fastball, down two MPH from his average last year.  

Nathan has blown one of two save opportunities so far, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks in 2 2/3 innings of work.

Joe Nathan dealing with 'dead arm' phase
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Joe Nathan admitted Wednesday that he's dealing with a "dead arm" phase, Mad Dog Sports Radio reports.

Nathan says he's still "fine-tuning" things. He'll just have to pitch through the dead arm until it feels better. Nathan has given up two earned runs in 2 2/3 innings this season while converting one of his two save opportunities.

Joe Nathan struggles again, but nails down save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tigers closer Joe Nathan was credited with a save Saturday, but it's not one he will remember fondly.

He sprayed gasoline on the fire started by his fellow relievers in a nervous ninth inning, which began with his team leading 7-1. He gave up a single and double to cut the lead to 7-5 before settling down to strike out Nelson Cruz and retire Chris Davis and keep his team unbeaten.

Nathan has already blown a save this season and owns a 6.75 ERA.
