Jonathan Papelbon won't sign off on trade unless he is closer
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/25/15) Phillies relief pitcher Jonathan Papelbon wants out of Philadelphia, but he will not sign off on a trade unless he is assured the closer role with another team, according to CSN Philly.
Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon goes two to earn victory
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) The suddenly hot Phillies needed closer Jonathan Papelbon to put in a little extra work Wednesday to provide them with their fifth win in six games. He did just that.
Papelbon worked two innings, but threw just 20 pitches along the way, in blanking the Rays on one hit. He walked one and fanned one in securing his second victory in three decisions.
He has given up just one run in his last 10 innings and has two saves and a win in his last three appearances.
Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon earns save Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/20/15) Phillies pitcher Jonathan Papelbon pitched a perfect ninth inning to record his 16th save of the season during Monday's 5-3 win over the Rays. He also struck out two batters.
Papelbon is now 16 for 16 in save chances this season with a 1.72 ERA.
Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon notches 15th save of season
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/18/15) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon closed out the ninth inning of his team's win over the Marlins on Saturday with ease, as he recorded his 15th save of the season.
Papelbon now has a 1.77 ERA with 36 strikeouts and just seven walks in 35 2/3 innings of relief this season.
Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon serves up late homer on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/17/15) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon gave up a solo home run in the top of the ninth, but was able to preserve a 6-3 victory over the Marlins on Friday. Papelbon surrendered a one-out blast to Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto, and then gave up a single to the next batter.
But he was able to escape the jam and the Phillies hung on for the win. It was a non-save situation for Papelbon, but he hadn't pitched in nine days--including the All-Star break--so he was handed the ball in the ninth inning.
|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.
