Tigers | Joe Nathan dealing with dead arm

Detroit Tigers RP Joe Nathan (arm) said he's dealing with a "dead arm" right now. "Unfortunately there's no secret to getting through it quicker," Nathan said. "It's just one of those things that will hit guys throughout the course of a year and you never know when it is going to be or how long it is going to last but all you can do is continue to throw and throw through it and, hopefully, one day you come there and the ball is coming out of your hand a lot cleaner and with a little more zip on it." Nathan has allowed two runs in 2 2/3 innings this year and blew his first save chance April 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Tigers haven't given any indication that they'll shut Nathan down, but don't be surprised if he's rested during the team's next save chance. Al Alburquerque and Phil Coke could be used if that's the case.
