MLB notes: Tigers, Joe Nathan agree on deal, reports say

Several media outlets reported Tuesday that the American League Central champion Detroit Tigers have signed veteran Joe Nathan, the closer they arguably needed in last season’s ALCS against the world champion Red Sox.

MLB Network and CBSSports.com reported that it is a two-year deal after FOXSports.com reported the sides were nearing an agreement. The Tigers had yet to confirm any agreement, which they often don’t do until free agents have passed physical exams.
