Twins closer Joe Nathan will test sore elbow by weekend

Twins closer Joe Nathan told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune he plans to play catch on Saturday to test the torn ligament in his right elbow—and determine whether he will need season-ending surgery.

"When I feel loose—if I do get loose—I definitely want to test this thing as much as I can for Day 1 and see how it feels," Nathan told the newspaper. "This is going to be something where there shouldn’t be a gray area. It’s going to be, ‘I feel great,’ or, ‘This just isn’t me, this doesn’t feel right.’"
