Report: Brewers in serious discussions for Phillies' Papelbon
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/23/15) The Brewers are engaged in serious discussions for Phillies reliever Jonathan Papelbon, according to Yahoo Sports.
The 34-year-old Papelbon is owed $13 million next season, and has a vesting option for 2016 if he finishes 48 games in 2015. If that option vests, Papelbon would earn $13 million in 2016. Papelbon also has 17 teams on his no-trade list, and it's unclear whether the Brewers are one of those teams. Papelbon posted a 2.04 ERA over 66 1/3 innings last year.
The Brewers recently freed up cash by dealing pitcher Yovani Gallardo, causing some to believe another move was coming. The club did lose Francisco Rodriguez following a resurgent season, and hasn't done much to replace him this offseason. Jonathan Broxton was expected to step in as the team's closer, but he's missed significant time in two of the past four seasons.

Jonathan Papelbon returns from suspension

|(9/23/14) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon returns from a seven-game suspension Tuesday, and he'll immediately slide back into a ninth-inning role, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
"He’s our closer right now, as we speak," manager Ryne Sandberg said.
Papelbon was ejected after making an obsence gesture to the crowd upon blowing a three-run lead in his last outing. The league later slapped him with a seven-game suspension. Papelbon owns a 2.10 ERA and 61:15 K:BB ratio in 64 1/3 innings to go with 37 saves.
MLB hands Jonathan Papelbon a seven-game suspension

|(9/15/14) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon has received a seven-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for his actions following the top of the ninth inning of the Sunday against Miami, via the MLB Public Relations department.|
Papelbon had a meltdown and allowed four runs in the ninth inning for the blown save and loss on Sunday. He has converted 37 of 41 save chances, with a 2.10 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP over 64 1/3 innings. He will not appeal, leaving him eligible to return Sept. 23 in Miami.
Jonathan Papelbon tossed after blowing save
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/14/14) Jonathan Papelbon's Sunday afternoon went from bad to worse, as he blew a three-run lead for the Phillies against the Marlins and was ejected from the game for making an obscene gesture to the crowd. Papelbon left the field to boos from the hometown fans after he allowed four runs in the top of the ninth with the winning run coming on a wild pitch. He responded with the gesture, which led to his ejection from the 5-4 loss.
In his one inning of work, Papelbon allowed four hits and a walk with one strikeout. He absorbed his fourth blown save of the season, and his record dropped to 2-3.
|2014 summary: Jonathan Papelbon quietly returned to the ranks of the top 10 closers in Fantasy last season, rebounding from a 2013 season in which he blew seven of 36 save opportunities. Though Papelbon continued to exhibit declining fastball velocity, he was able to succeed with sharp control and an avoidance of hard contact. Papelbon converted 39 of 43 saves, finishing with his highest save total since 2008, and his 2.04 ERA was his lowest in five years.|
Playing time status: Papelbon is entering his walk year, and therefore, would seem to be a prime trade candidate. Unless he gets moved this offseason, Papelbon will begin the year as the Phillies' closer.
2015 outlook: A year ago, owners were not interested in pursuing Papelbon as a top-flight closer, but if last season's performance is any indication, he could be a decent low-end No. 1 reliever in standard mixed leagues. He probably won't need to be drafted as such, but he could be a steal as a No. 2 reliever.
