Jonathan Papelbon picked up his 25th save with a scoreless ninth inning against the Diamondbacks on Sunday. He gave up two hits and struck out one.

Papelbon shook off a couple of rough appearances late last week and has now gone three straight appearances with out allowing a run, earning two saves and picking up a strikeout per inning with no walks. it's goign to be a tough week for his owners as the trade deadline nears andn his name being a hot topic of discussion. However, the Phillies may have a tough time dealing him as they need someone willing to pick up a major portion of his remaining salary as well as have a need for some ninth inning help. Both the Togers and Angels fit the bill but took care of their problems in a more cost-efficient way. Though it seems unlikely, he really could just stay ion Philly the rest of the way.
