From the Collection: Joe Nathan, p, Rangers

IMG_0035

Joe Nathan was orginally drafted in the 6th Round of the 1995 Draft. He was a solid, though nothing special, starter for the Giants in 1999 and 2000 before coming to the Twins in a big trade in 2003 with Minnesota–the Twins got Nathan, Boof Bonser and Francisco Liriano for AJ Pierzynski and some cash.

He has already moved to the pen with the Giants, but really flourished out of the pen with Minnesota. Nathan has been one of the better closers of this generation, earning his sixth All-Star Game selection this past season.
