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. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Mike Montgomery will make his scheduled start on Sunday.
Montgomery, the Mariners young left-hander, is riding back-to-back complete game shutouts, one of which was a one-hitter. It's tough to be hotter than Montgomery is right now, considering his perfect ERA (0.00), strikeout total (17), and hits allowed (6) over the last two starts, so lets sit back on Sunday and see if he can finally complete the no-hitter against the Oakland A's.

Diamondbacks announce Patrick Corbin will start on Saturday.
Corbin has been saying to the media for the past couple of weeks that he's "feeling ready to go" and that he is confident that his stuff is "just as good as it was before". If we choose to believe him, Corbin will be a solid start on Saturday, but coming off a long rehabbed surgery, it might be better to wait on Corbin until he shows a body of work in his post surgery career.
