The Washington Nationals acquired Jonathan Papelbon on Tuesday, something that didn't seem to sit well with incumbent closer Drew Storen.
"All I'm going to say is, I'm aware of the move and I've talked to Mike about it. I've talked to my agent about it," Storen said. "We've had some ongoing discussions. Until those have progressed, I'm just going to leave it at that. No comment for now. But as the situation goes, I'll keep you guys posted."
This will mark the third time that Storen has lost his job as closer since 2011.
Storen has a 1.73 ERA and 44 strikeouts in 36.1 innings (29 saves) this season.
