Closer Watch: Paps back to 'pen

Just a day after reports that the Red Sox were approaching a decision to name a closer, the team indicated that Jonathan Papelbon will be returning to the closers' role. Papelbon further stated that he would like to remain a closer for his entire career, and that there were no longer any additional health concerns around his closing rather than starting. On another note, Julian Tavarez will step in as the fifth starter.
