Rangers | Joe Nathan considering WBC

Texas Rangers RP Joe Nathan was approached by Team USA manager Joe Torre about the possibility of pitching the in the World Baseball Classic. "I asked if I could give them an answer in a couple of weeks and they said, 'No problem,'" Nathan said. "We left it at that." He played for the US team in 2006, but did not partake in 2009. He said he is focused on making sure he is fresh down the stretch for the Rangers in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: While general manager Jon Daniels generally gives his blessing to players for the WBC, secretly the team, fans and fantasy owners would feel better if Nathan didn't put undue stress on his elbow, just a couple of seasons back from Tommy John surgery. When healthy, Nathan is still a top-notch fantasy option.
