Matt Capps Replaces Joe Nathan as Twins Closer

Apr 17, 2011

After a rough road trip to Tampa Bay Joe Nathan is out as closer and Matt Capps is in. Nathan blew two consecutive saves and saw his ERA jump from 2.25 to 8.44 over the process. Unfortunately Capps has been equally ineffective, blowing one save and allowing the Rays to cut a 3-1 deficit in half. Capps’ ERA jumped from 1.35 to 4.50. Obviously you should grab Capps if he is available in your league, though I anticipate Nathan reclaiming his job at some point.
