News: Papelbon earned his 30th save of the year with a scoreless ninth inning against the Mariners on Wednesday. He's now reached the 30-save mark eight times in his last nine seasons. Impact: Papelbon has never been the most popular player, but he's put together some very impressive numbers over his career with 315 saves to go with a 2.34 ERA and 1.02 WHIP.(RotoWire, )

News: Papelbon earned his 29th save of the season Monday against the Mariners as he allowed one hit and recorded one strikeout in one scoreless inning. Impact: Papelbon has recorded at least 30 saves in a season every year of his career except for last year when he finished with 29. He continues to be a reliable closer for the Phillies and should remain that way for the rest of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Papelbon retired all three batters he faced in the ninth inning of Thursday's 6-5 win over Houston to notch his 27th save of the season. Impact: Philadelphia rallied to score five runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, setting up Papelbon for the save. The veteran closer has been solid this season, although there wasn't much interest for him at the July trade deadline. There's a chance he could still be dealt to another team, but that seems unlikely.(RotoWire, )
