Multi-Year Deal Remains a Possibility for Papelbon

According to Adam Kilgore of the Boston Globe, both the Red Sox and Jonathan Papelbon remain interested in pursuing a multi-year contract extension for the All-Star closer.

Although the parties agreed to a one-year, $6.25MM deal earlier today, Red Sox assistant GM Jed Hoyer said of the chances of a long-term deal, "I would say, certainly, those discussions are open and we may pick them up going forward. I think both sides felt like in the interest of time and not exchanging numbers, the best thing to do was to agree on a one-year number today. But we are certainly open to exploring those ideas, and I think their side is, too."
