Report: Brewers interested in Papelbon

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan, the Brewers are in serious discussions with the Phillies to acquire right-handed relief pitcher Jonathan Papelbon.

The 34-year-old is owed $13 million for the coming season with a vesting option for the same amount in the following year, if he finishes 48 games in 2015.  Papelbon, who was acquired by the Phillies as a free agent following the 2011 season, has a limited no-trade clause.

Last season, Papelbon tallied a 2-3 record with 39 saves and a 2.04 ERA in 66 appearances.
