Rangers | Ron Washington trying to keep Joe Nathan fresh

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington initially wanted to only use RP Joe Nathan in save situations, but he quickly realized it wasn't the best plan, and Washington plans to use Nathan to keep him sharp. He hasn't pitched since a save chance Aug. 8. "One way or another, we've got to get him in there," Washington said. "It was not my intention for him to sit for seven days. The games just haven't dictated using him."
