Blue Jays | Jonathan Papelbon interested in TOR

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 12:14:16 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon said the idea of being traded to the Toronto Blue Jays interests him even more than pitching for the Milwaukee Brewers would have. Papelbon has a vesting $13 million option for the 2016 season, and he wouldn't say if he'd require the option to be guaranteed in order to accept a deal to Toronto.

Fantasy Tip: Papelbon is a pretty safe saves option for fantasy baseball owners this year, since he'll likely be closing even if he's traded to Toronto. After Francisco Rodriguez re-signed in Milwaukee, that makes a Paps trade even less likely, though, which means saves speculators may need to practice even more patience with Ken Giles now. Stay tuned.
