News: Papelbon picked up his sixth save of the season in the 10th inning to seal a 3-2 win over the Dodgers on Tuesday. Impact: The veteran closer needed just seven pitches to get two fly outs and a pop out in extra innings at Dodger Stadium. Since blowing a save April 2 when he surrendered three earned runs on four hits and two walks, Papelbon has been near perfect, allowing just three hits in seven appearances. Papelbon is now eight saves shy of the 300 milestone, and at age 33, shows few signs of slowing.(RotoWire, )

News: Papelbon is questionable to pitch in Monday's game due to the flu, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg referred to his closer as "a little iffy" when discussing Papelbon's availability prior to game time. If Papelbon is in fact unavailable, the Phillies will likely play the matchups for the ninth inning should a save situation arise.(RotoWire, )
