NATE ROBERTSON BACK WHERE IT STARTED

NATE ROBERTSON BACK WHERE IT STARTED

Independent Baseball Insider – by Bob Wirz

Southpaw Nate Robertson finally got a job, and it is back with the organization where he first set foot on a major league mound. The Detroit Tigers have inked Robertson to a Triple-A contract 11 years after he broke in with the parent club at age 25. Robertson, in the Texas farm system last year, is part-owner and pitched briefly for the Wichita (KS) Wingnuts of the American Association in 2012, giving up no runs on four hits in eight innings of work over three appearances.

The Wichita native has spent parts of nine seasons in the big leagues with Detroit, Miami and Philadelphia, winning 13 games for the American League Champion Tigers in 2006.
