Joe Nathan Has a Torn UCL

Joe Nathan has a torn UCL, and while there is talk that he's going to try the rest and rehab route, it sounds like he's probably done for the year with Tommy John surgery.

This means the Twins have lost their closer, and given that they have playoff aspirations, one has to wonder if they might not be inclined to shop around for some bullpen help.  Would a Chris Ray for Brendan Harris swap be something the Twins would be interested in?  Harris would give the Rangers a legitimate utility infielder, and Ray is someone who the Rangers could afford to part with in a deal.
