Rangers | Joe Nathan seeking multi-year deal

Texas Rangers RP Joe Nathan would prefer to negotiate a multi-year deal. The team has three days to decide whether to exercise his $9 million option for the 2014 season or give him a buyout of $750,000. Nathan can void the option after finishing at least 55 games this season. "I want at least two years," Nathan said. "The last couple of years, I think I've proven that I'm healthy. I think I've proven to lots of skeptics and critics that I can handle a two-year deal or maybe two and an option." Nathan had 43 saves, a 1.39 ERA and 73 strikeouts this year.

Fantasy Tip: Texas has both Joakim Soria and Tanner Scheppers who would be more than capable of filling the closer role if the Rangers decide to let Nathan walk. Soria will be pitching in his first full season back after Tommy John surgery, too.
