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.
Jonathan Papelbon makes quick work of Marlins
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/13/14) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon made quick work of the Marlins Saturday night for his 37th save of the season. He struck out one and needed only eight pitches to retire the side in order to close out a 2-1 victory. He has converted 37 of 40 save chances, with a 1.64 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 60:14 K:BB ratio in 63 1/3 innings.
|Jonathan Papelbon had one of his worst years as a major-league reliever in 2013. The veteran right-hander closed out a career-low 29 games last season, which also marked the first time as a closer he had less than 30 saves. It wasn't totally Papelbon's fault. The Phillies underachieved, winning just 73 games and finishing fourth in the NL East. Papelbon did have some struggles, blowing seven saves, which was the second most in his career. But he still finished 5-1 with a 2.92 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. Outside of the low-save total, the second-most disappointing number for Papelbon last season was his 57 strikeouts in 61 2/3 innings. It was the first time in seven seasons he struck out less than 10 batters per nine innings and the second straight season his strikeout rate declined. There's obviously some concern as Papelbon is coming off a season in which his velocity dropped and his strikeout rate dipped again, but he's still a viable option for saves and is a worthy mid-to-late-round Fantasy pick.
