Jonathan Papelbon 38 saves, 1.85 ERA
Papelbon is back for another year, avoiding arbitration by signing a $9.35 million deal with the Red Sox Tuesday. The Red Sox have also come to terms with relievers Ramon Ramirez and Manny Delcarmen, according to the Globe's Amalie Benjamin. These three key players remain in a bullpen that converted 69 percent of save chances last year, just above the league average.
