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.

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.

Jonathan Papelbon gave up a pair of hits but hung in there to convert his 25th save of the season in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Papelbon yielded a leadoff single to David Peralta and a one-out single to Miguel Montero, but he got a strikeout of Paul Goldschmidt and induced a double-play ball from Martin Prado to end it. The fiery reliever boasts a 1.83 ERA and has converted 25 of 28 save chances this season. It's possible he could change teams before the trade deadline.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the trade market for Jonathan Papelbon "seems light, if existent."

Papelbon has had a fine season, posting a 1.91 ERA while saving 24 games in 28 chances, but Heyman says "there seemingly isn't strong interest," especially with the Angels and Tigers having already acquired relievers. The Phillies are prepared to eat a portion of the $18 million guaranteed to Papelbon through the end of next season, but he also has a vesting option for 2016, something that Heyman notes "can be sticky for acquiring teams."

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi and Ken Rosenthal report that the Tigers are "keeping tabs on all relievers, including Jonathan Papelbon."

The two also say that the Tigers are interested in Antonio Bastardo. Detroit appears dead set on adding at least one bullpen piece at the deadline, as they've also been connected to Brad Ziegler, Joaquin Benoit and Joakim Soria. The Tigers have publicly backed Joe Nathan as closer, but it's possible he could be demoted depending on who they're able to acquire.

A source tells Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles that he expects the Dodgers to pursue Jonathan Papelbon.

The Dodgers already have a competent closer in Kenley Jansen, but setup man Brian Wilson has been terrible and the Dodgers have the financial wherewithal to take on a portion of Papelbon's remaining salary. Papelbon recently told reporters he would welcome a deal to a contender, so getting him to waive his no-trade clause to head west shouldn't be a problem.
