Jonathan Papelbon reportedly interested in returning to Red Sox

Could a reunion be on the cards for Jonathan Papelbon?

Rob Bradford of WEEI reported Saturday that the newly-released reliever would be interested in returning to Boston and joining the Red Sox.

So, what did the Red Sox think of that? Well, when asked, their response was a definite maybe.

Papelbon wouldn’t close with Boston. They have Craig Kimbrel, so he’d have to fit in somewhere else. It remains to be seen whether he’d accept a lesser role in a bullpen in order to play with a contending team.

Papelbon is available after he and Washington had what is best described as a mutual parting of the ways. He has a 4.37 ERA in 37 appearances in 2016.
