Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon “is generating little interest,” on the open market even though the team is willing to eat some money on his contract.

Although Papelbon is the best reliever available in the trading market leading up to the trade deadline, the high salary and often high demands are getting in the way of letting a deal go through. He has recently said he will exercise his no-trade clause if sent to a team that will not use his as a closer, which has hurt the Phillies side of things significantly. However in terms of fantasy at least we know he will be a closer the rest of the season, whether with the Phillies or an other organization.
