Red Sox Studio Analyst
Jonathan Papelbon is in his first season contributing to NESN’s pre- and post-game coverage with a weekly appearance. The 12-year MLB veteran spent his first seven seasons with the Red Sox, earning four of his six All-Star selections with the club. A member of Boston's 2007 World Series championship team, Papelbon recorded a save in all four games of the Sox's Fall Classic sweep. His 219 saves in a Red Sox uniform are a franchise record, with his 368 career saves ranking ninth all-time. The Florida native also pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies (between 2012 and 2015) and Washington Nationals (in 2015 and 2016) following his time in Boston.
