Teams Taking Notice of Jonathan Papelbon
Papelbon has picked up all five save opportunities with a 1.59 ERA, 12 strikeouts and just three walks in 11.1 innings.
As Buster Olney reported on Baseball Tonight:
"I had a scout tell me this is the best that I have ever seen Papelbon throw. He's learned to finish off hitters in the upper-half of the strike zone."
Papelbon has a $13 million vesting option for 2016, but as Olney stated, he might be so good right now that teams would be willing to take a chance on him anyway.
