PAPELBON AND HIS LARGE CONTRACT MIGHT FINALLY BE TRADED

images

Jonathan Papelbon, who has what is left of a four year fifty million dollar contract, and become  The Phillies want to move him.  Paplebon is striking out less hitters.  Yet The Brewers, who need a closer, are interested.  The Blue Jays are also interested in Papelbon.  Papelbon is in the final year of his contract, but he does has an option for 2016.  If he finishes 55 games in 2015  the 13 million dollar option will kick in.  Or if he finishes 100 games between 2014 and 2105, he finished 52 games last year for a losing team.  Papelbon is 33.
