Jonathan Papelbon picked up his 27th save after throwing a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout against the Astros on Thursday.

Papelbon has now converted 27 of his first 30 save opportunities in 2014, while managing to support a 1.68 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and a 46:13 K:BB rate over 48.1 innings. There is a chance the Phillies may still try to move their closer before the waiver trade deadline, but the odds are unlikely he will be moved considering he will not waive his no-trade clause to be moved to middle relief with a new team.
