The Phillies may be stuck with Jonathan Papelbon's contract
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) The Phillies have been stuck with closer Jonathan Papelbon's contract, and may continue to be stuck moving forward, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Papelbon is making $13 million in 2015 and has a $13-million vesting option for 2016 that Milwaukee or another acquiring team may need to fully guarantee in order to get the pitcher to waive his no-trade clause.
"The dollars are just way too big," a rival GM said.

Phillies' Jonathan Papelbon gets 8th save of season
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon earned his eighth save of the season in Thursday afternoon's 4-2 win over the Pirates.
Papelbon came in for Ken Giles in the ninth inning. Giles allowed an RBI double to Starling Marte which caused the pitching move to occur.
Papelbon then got Pedro Alvarez to ground out, which drove in a run from third. That earned run was credited to Giles.
Papelbon then hit Jung Ho Kang with a pitch before getting Andrew McCutchen to hit a fly ball for an out to close the game.
Papelbon now has an ERA of 1.20 for the season.
|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.
