The first major injury of the 2010 baseball campaign. From AP-
Minnesota Twins closer Joe Nathan will miss the 2010 season because of an elbow injury that will require surgery.
Nathan, who leads the major leagues with 246 saves since 2004, made the decision after playing catch with Twins pitching coach Rick Anderson for 10 minutes on Sunday.
Nathan hopes to have surgery to repair the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow within two weeks. He was injured on March 6 during a 20-pitch outing in a spring training game against the Boston Red Sox.
An elbow injury at Nathan’s age is career threatening. This will hurt the Twins also but I don’t know to what extent.
