Player Notes
Nationals manager Dusty Baker suggested late Tuesday that he's considering a change at closer.

Advice: Papelbon blew his second straight save opportunity on Tuesday night against the Indians, yielding three runs on two walks and two hits. He did not record an out. "It’s too soon after," Baker said in his postgame press conference. "I mean, that’s his job. That’s what he’s getting paid for. I don’t know. We just have to go back to the drawing board. It’s too early to say after the game." Washington was heavily interested in Aroldis Chapman before he went to the Cubs. Maybe there's a plan now that involves Andrew Miller. If no outside upgrade is made and Papelbon's struggles continue, Shawn Kelley could become the guy.

Jonathan Papelbon melted down in grand fashion Tuesday, allowing three runs without recording an out in a blown save against the Indians.

Advice: Papelbon also took the loss in the disastrous outing, yielding two hits and two walks before being removed. The blown save was his fourth of the year, as was the loss. He's now allowed seven runs in his last two appearances, a fact that surely stings more considering the Nats were among the runners up for Aroldis Chapman when he was dealt to the Cubs. Perhaps they're not done looking for late-inning relief help.

Jonathan Papelbon surrendered four earned runs in the top of the ninth inning Sunday as the Nationals fell to the Padres.

Advice: Papelbon was called upon with the game tied 6-6 but couldn't hold the line, yielding a walk and four hits while recording only two outs. He watched his season ERA jump from 2.56 all the way to 3.62.
