37 saves last year for the 38 year old. Above 7 Spring ERA. Nathan is a tough one for me, is he gonna have a repeat performance or big regression/injury candidate?

Anyone see the rotoworld update saying that Texas is entertaining offers for Nathan?

Why in the world would they be doing that? Can anyone make sense of that?

They figure Soria could close for them and they could get a good haul for Nathan.

I'd put the chances that he's actually dealt at about 5% though.

Makes a lot of sense if they can get a valuable asset back in return. Soria can close and Nathan would instantly become the best closer on the market.

Rangers bullpen is pretty deep, and Soria's been good so far. We could always move Ogando back to the pen once some of our starters begin to get healthy. If we could get Hunter and a prospect or two it might be a smart move. Nathan is getting up there in age.
