|Jonathan Papelbon picks up save No. 28 |

(8/16/14) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon worked a perfect ninth for the save Friday, as he closed out a 5-3 win in the 10th inning.

|Jonathan Papelbon works 1-2-3 inning for the save |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/7/14) Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon struck out one and needed only 14 pitches to complete a perfect ninth inning for the save Thursday night at home against the Astros. He has converted 27 of 30 save chances, with a 1.68 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP over 48 1/3 innings of work.
|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.
