|Jonathan Papelbon makes things interesting, but picks up save |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/27/14) Phillies pitcher Jonathan Papelbon made things interesting Sunday, but ultimately picked up the save.
Papelbon entered the game with a two-run lead, and had some trouble before closing out the game. Papelbon gave up a leadoff single to start the inning. After striking out Paul Goldschmidt, Papelbon allowed another hit. With the winning run at the plate, Papelbon was able to induce a game-ending double play. It was his 25th save of the season.

(7/24/14) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon jogged onto the field in the ninth inning Thursday against the Giants to a onslaught of boos after sending Philadelphia to a loss Wednesday night. By the end of his outing Thursday he was being cheered, as he picked up his 24th save in a 2-1 win.
Papelbon, who was pitching for a third day in a row, needed just 10 pitches to retire the side in order, which included a strikeout of Joaquin Arias. The veteran reliever, who has been mentioned in trade rumors, had allowed four runs in his first two appearances against the Giants.

(7/23/14) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon was charged with a loss Wednesday, giving up three earned runs on one hit and two walks while striking out two in an inning of work in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Giants.
Papelbon (2-2) came into a scoreless game in the ninth inning. He walked a pair of batters and hit another to load the bases with two outs before Hunter Pence came through with a bases-clearing double. Papelbon has a loss and a blown save in his last two starts, but he still owns a 1.96 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 37:11 K:BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings.
|Report: Tigers keeping tabs on Antonio Bastardo, Jonathan Papelbon |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/22/14) The Tigers are keeping tabs on Phillies left-hander Antonio Bastardo and closer Jonathan Papelbon, according to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports.
Bastardo owns a 3.30 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP and 53:24 K:BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings of relief. Papelbon has converted 23 of 25 saves, with a 1.17 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP in 38 1/3 innings this season.
|Jonathan Papelbon needs just five pitches in save Saturday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/19/14) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon needed just five pitches to record three outs and pick up his 23rd save in his team's 2-1 win over the Braves Saturday.
Papelbon has been doing his best to pump up his trade value in recent weeks, tossing 11 straight scoreless innings while giving up two hits and no walks. In fact, the last walk he issued came all the way back on May 24. Papelbon owns a 1.17 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 33:9 K:BB ratio in 38 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.
