Tigers Tigers reportedly have two-year deal with Nathan

Quote:
The Tigers promised Monday night they weren't done dealing after freeing up money in the Doug Fister trade. By lunchtime Tuesday, they were dealing again, spending some of that money to fill their biggest need.

With Joe Nathan, the reigning American League Central champions have the proven veteran closer they arguably needed this season, reportedly agreeing to terms on a two-year deal.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network and CBSSports.com reported the deal after FOXSports.com reported the two sides were nearing an agreement. The Tigers have yet to confirm an agreement, which is often their policy with free agents until players have passed physical exams.

Nathan's agent, Dave Pepe, also didn't answer a message seeking comment. However, Torii Hunter, Nathan's old teammate in Minnesota and a key recruiter in Detroit's pursuit, was already welcoming Nathan's arrival.

"We needed him," Hunter wrote Tuesday in a text message to MLB.com. "I had to sell the vision of winning it all to him."

Like Hunter a year ago, Nathan has been seeking a World Series title as he nears the twilight of the career. At age 39, these next couple of years might well be his final chance to do it. He'll chase it with the team he shut down for years while closing for the Twins in the American League Central.

Philip Kossoy here...Nathan has been a quality closer forever. He's like a poor mans Mariano Rivera. Nobody ever thought he would be a success but he's been terrific his whole career. Still a top closer @ 39. Now that's impressive! He pitched for Minnesota all those years so he'll be right at home in Detroit!
