Nathan out, Capps in as Twins' closer
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Matt Capps is taking over as the Minnesota Twins closer so Joe Nathan, who has blown his last two save opportunities, can work on regaining his form in non-save situations as he comes back from elbow surgery.
Nathan missed all of last season after having right elbow ligament replacement surgery, and has been inconsistent this year.
He is 0-1 with an 8.44 ERA in six games.
