Twins put Nathan on DL with sore elbow

Manager Ron
Gardenhire confirmed the move before Saturday’s game. The Twins were determining which pitcher to call up from the minors to take Nathan’s place in the bullpen.
With left-handers Jose (notes) and Glen Perkins(notes) and right-hander Kevin Slowey(notes) already on the disabled list, Minnesota’s bullpen is depleted. Three Twins relievers blew a 5-0 lead in the eighth inning Friday in a 6-5 loss to the Los Angeles Angels.
