Dodgers | Interested in Jonathan Papelbon

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 17:59:31 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to pursue Philadelphia Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon, a baseball source said Wednesday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: With Kenley Jansen already in the closer's spot, and doing well, it would likely be a move to a setup role which would hurt his fantasy value immensely. Fantasy owners certainly wouldn't like this deal one bit.

Phillies | Jonathan Papelbon would welcome trade

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 09:20:55 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon would like to pitch for a contending team, and his limited no-trade clause shouldn't pose any problems at this year's trade deadline. Papelbon locked down his 22nd save of the season Wednesday, July 9. He is hoping his strong performance will make him coveted by a contending team.

Fantasy Tip: Ken Giles is a candidate on which to speculate as Papelbon trade rumors swirl. Giles is considered the heir apparent. As for Papelbon owners, it's likely that if a team is willing to trade for Paps, that team probably would make the right-hander its closer, but it's hard to guarantee it. Giles is a fine handcuff.

Phillies | Future closer making Jonathan Papelbon expendable?

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 00:03:02 -0700

The emergence of Philadelphia Phillies RP Ken Giles has made CL Jonathan Papelbon expendable in some people's eyes, although it is expected the Phillies would have to kick in $13 million for a potential vesting option. Giles has allowed one run on four hits in 11 2/3 innings with three walks and 17 strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: If Giles is still available in your fantasy league you may want to pick him up whether or not you have Papelbon. It's always nice to have a potential handcuff candidate in case a closer goes down or loses the job, and all indications are Giles may have this job now or in 2015.

Philadelphia Phillies CL Jonathan Papelbon nailed down his 13th save in 14 chances Saturday, May 24.

Phillies | Jonathan Papelbon ready if called upon

Tue, 13 May 2014 18:10:40 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon said Sunday, May 11, that he was too sore to pitch against the New York Mets. His replacement, RP Antonio Bastardo, blew a three-run lead and the team suffered a tough loss. His day off was controversial, but he has no regrets. "I've pitched through soreness before. This was different. It was basically a soreness where I wasn't comfortable throwing. I felt like I could create more injury. Instead of missing 30 or 40 or 50 games, I decided it would be best for my team and my career to may sit one out," Papelbon said Tuesday, May 13.
