Twins closer Nathan out for the year


The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports: Twins closer Joe Nathan has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. If he decides to undergo surgery, the 35-year-old reliever likely would miss the entire 2010 season, a major blow for the defending AL Central champions.

This might be a good opportunity to acquire someone from the Twins, in exchange for Brian Fuentes.  The Twins need a closer or they have no chance of repeating in the Central Division.  The Angels have lots of arms, and my view is that Fuentes won't be the closer by July, if not sooner.  No chance for Mauer, but they have some other talent, like Nick Punto, Scott Baker, Delmon Young, or Jason Kubel.
