Twins pitcher Joe Nathan tore a ligament in his elbow and likely faces Tommy John surgery. That means it's time for all you fantasy players to ditch Nathan and look at any combination of Matt Guerrier/Jon Rauch/Jose Mijares as the Twins closer for this year. They spent money this off-season, so they will win games. Follow this situation closely and draft whoever Ron Gardenhire names as his closer ..... Phenom Stephen Strasburg made his spring training debut on Tuesday for the Nationals, working two scoreless innings ..... Curtis Granderson is hitless in nine at-bats as a Yankee ..... Former All-Star Hank Blalock signed a deal with the Rays and could make the team as a role player ..... The Rays will host a Carlos Pena action figure toothbrush holder night this season. If that doesn't bring people to the ballpark, what will?
