Jonathan Papelbon earned his 21st save of the season with a perfect inning to close out Tuesday's 9-7 win over the Brewers.
Papelbon has been a bright spot for the Phillies of late, allowing only one earned run over his last 10 appearances, while owning a 10:0 K:BB rate in that stretch. Although he has now pitched back-to-back days, Papelbon has thrown only 18 pitches the last two days, so expect him to be available if needed on Wednesday. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jarrell Eddie will sign a 10-day contract with the Hawks on Thursday.
The undrafted free agent out of Virginia Tech, Jarrell Eddie won the D-League's Three-Point Shootout during the All-Star weekend, and will now be given the opportunity to log his first minute in the NBA with the Atlanta Hawks. The team had one vacant roster spot, so no one is being sent to the Developmental League as a result of this signing. We'll have to see what the Hawks' have in mind for their new three-point threat.
