Jonathan Papelbon picked up a strikeout and his 33rd save of the season for the Phillies on Tuesday against the Nationals.
The veteran closer continues to get the job done even as his name is whispered in trade rumors almost daily. He will continue to be a fine ninth inning option going forward regardless of his home.ANALYST: David Kerr
The Rangers released Ryan Ludwick on Sunday.
Ludwick was notified a couple days back that he would not be making the big-league team and was allowed to search for another team. He has struggled in Spring Training and hasn't been able to get over the .700 OPS mark the last two seasons. The Rangers will look internally to create outfield options for the 2015 season.
