According to's Ken Rosenthal, multiple teams have been heavily scouting Jonathan Papelbon in recent days—and his ticket out of Philly looks to be imminent. Recent stories have mentioned both the Blue Jays and Cubs as possible suitors, but the range of teams appears to have broadened recently. Papelbon is having another good year as closer with an incredibly putrid team in The City of Brotherly Love. So far this year, the 34-year old has posted a 1.01 ERA with 13 saves. Look for a deal to happen soon.
