Jonathan Papelbon took the loss Wednesday after allowing three runs on one hit and two walks with two strikeouts over one inning of work against the Giants.

He's not really endearing himself to too many teams with a performance like this, especially after it follows another rough outing from the night before. Papelbon takes the loss hear after blowing the save the other night and has now allowed four runs on three hits and two walked with four strikeouts over three innings. He's obviously still a strong candidate to be traded, but outings like these unfortunately increase the chances of more teams looking to use him as a set-up man rather than their closer. His future value obviously lies with where he ultimately ends up so stay tuned.
