2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections
Joe Nathan is expected to return as the closer - sometime during the year, if not immediately - after missing all of last year because of Tommy John surgery. Initially, he may cede SV chances on consecutive days and be more hittable; BB and velocity have been problems for post-TJ pitchers in the past, and MIN has a solid backup plan. However, being a reliever should help Nathan get his velocity back sooner rather than later. Missing all of last year could be enough to drop his price, too, making him a solid value pick.
