FOX Sports: Tigers close to signing Nathan

The most active team this winter appears to be at it again. 

Ken Rosenthal tweeted that he and colleague Jon Morosi have learned the Tigers are close to a deal with free agent closer Joe Nathan

Detroit on Monday traded starting pitcher Doug Fister to the Nationals, and has already acquired Ian Kinsler this winter for Prince Fielder. Clearly, trading away two big pieces has freed up some salary space to sign Nathan. 

The 39-year-old Nathan, who was an All-Star with the Rangers the last two seasons, has 341 career saves.
