    • Kimbrel struck out the side to record his 29th save Friday against the Yankees. Kimbrel was protecting a three-run lead, but the Yankees couldn't even put a ball in play against him. With a 1.38 ERA, he's as elite as they come at closer.

    • Kimbrel (4-0) struck out two over 1.1 innings to earn the victory in Boston's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Yankees. Kimbrel entered a tied game in the bottom of the ninth, so he didn't have a chance at a save, but he was closer-like, shutting down all four batters faced.

    • Kimbrel struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his 28th save of the season in a 2-0 win over the Rays. He just picked up where Chris Sale had left off after fanning 13 in eight shutout innings, as Tampa's hitters were completely overmatched all night. Kimbrel now has a 2.45 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 22:3 K:BB in 11 innings since the All-Star break, numbers which are actually a step back from his incredible first half.

    • Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Notches 27th save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kimbrel struck out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning to collect his 27th save of the season during Sunday's win over the White Sox. Kimbrel hasn't been as sharp recently and has blown three of his past seven save opportunities. However, Sunday's conversion was his second straight. With a 1.51 ERA, 0.69 WHIP and 16.4 K/9 for the campaign, it'll take a lot more than the odd hiccup before Kimbrel's job or elite fantasy status is in jeopardy.

    • Kimbrel pitched a perfect inning while striking out two to record his 26th save Saturday against the White Sox. Kimbrel was protecting a three-run lead and quickly shut down the White Sox on just 12 pitches. Despite four blown saves, he continues to be a strong fantasy option, as evidenced by his 1.54 ERA.
