Phillies' Papelbon interested in deal to contender, Cubs, Blue Jays
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/19/15) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon is interested in being traded to any contender and is also willing to waive his 17-team no-trade clause for a deal to the Cubs or Blue Jays, team sources told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
One source said Papelbon is believed to prefer a trade to the Cubs. Papelbon is said to have talked about a deal to the Blue Jays in recent days, but it appears Toronto is more focused on acquiring a starting pitcher and aren't excited about Papelbon's $13-million vesting option for 2016.

|(6/18/15) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon earned his 13th save of the season in Thursday afternoon's 2-1 win over the Orioles.
Papelbon entered the game in the ninth inning and retired the first three batters he face, which included recording one strikeout. Papelbon now has a 1.01 ERA in 26.1 innings pitched this season.
Hurdles remain in Blue Jays pursuing Phillies' Jonathan Papelbon
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/12/15) With the rumors heating up as the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaches, the Blue Jays would have interest in Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
However, Toronto's interest will boil down to the Phillies paying Papelbon's contract way down and Philadelphia seeking little in the way of prospects in return, per Heyman. As of Thursday morning, the two sides haven't spoken in a while.
Papelbon is making $13 million in 2015 and has a $13 million vesting option for 2016, per Baseball-Reference.com.
|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.
