Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Reportedly headed to Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres have agreed to trade Craig Kimbrel to the Boston Red Sox , Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

There were rumors that the Red Sox were in the market for a new closer with 40-year-old Koji Uehara losing another tick on his fastball, and it seems they have landed their guy in Kimbrel. It's uncertain, however, who all is headed to San Diego in the deal. Kimbrel fell one save shy of 40 last season, and his 2.58 ERA was a career-worst mark, but he fanned 36.4 percent of he batters he faced and should be a top-five closer off the board come spring.

Padres RP Craig Kimbrel closes out D-Backs for 38th save
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Padres closer Craig Kimbrel struck out two batters and allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his 38th save in a 3-0 win over Arizona on Saturday.

It's amazing that Kimbrel has 38 saves on such a bad team, but it shows you how valuable he can be. He now ranks in the top-five of saves and strikeouts for all closers. Kimbrel has also been a bit unlucky this year, as his 14 percent home run-to-flyball rate is a career high. Not many closers are as reliable as Kimbrel and it makes him a great draft pick year after year.

Padres pitcher Craig Kimbrel fails to convert save Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Padres pitcher Craig Kimbrel (3-2) absorbed a blown save, but earned a win Wednesday night, giving up one earned run on a hit while striking out two in a 5-4 win over the Giants. 

Kimbrel's blown save came on a wild pitch, allowing Buster Posey to score and tie the game. The Padres would ultimately win on a walk-off Jedd Gyorko RBI single, awarding Kimbrel a victory as the pitcher of record.

Kimbrel's outings have come less frequently of late, making just six appearances thus far in September. The 27-year-old closer has pitched to a career-worst 2.72 ERA, but maintained an encouraging 13.01 K/9.

Padres closer Craig Kimbrel hasn't given up a run in successive outings since early May. That stretch continued Wednesday against visiting Atlanta.
