Lower velocity this time of year doesn't worry Tigers closer Joe Nathan
The Detroit News, Tony Paul
More and more, spring-training facilities are catering to the fans and installing the ever-popular radar guns for exhibition games. That's not exactly to Joe Nathan's liking.
The Tigers challenged a play in the sixth inning after Joe Nathan nearly picked off Adeiny Hechavarria. The call that the runner was safe was upheld.
'The biggest difference is, I guess (Leyland's) a little old school, Brad's a little new school,' Verlander said. 'What that means, I really don't even know, to be honest with you, that's just what people say.'
The last time Nate Robertson was in Tigers camp, he was on the verge of being traded to the Marlins.
Bruce Rondon’s arm is undeniable. He can throw 100 and he’s been tabbed as a future closer.
