#Cubs sign Joe Nathan
The Cubs added some depth on Tuesday, signing right-handed pitcher Joe Nathan to a Major League contract. Nathan won’t be joining the team immediately; he was placed on the 60-day disabled list as he continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery in April 2015.
Nathan, 41, is a six-time All-Star who has earned 377 saves, eighth most in Major League history, in 15 seasons with the Giants, (1999-2000, 2002-03), Twins (2004-09, 2011), Rangers (2012-13) and Tigers (2014-15).
Nathan made one appearance with the Tigers last year before undergoing surgery.
