  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Records 20th save

    Kimbrel allowed one earned run on one hit while striking out one to earn the save Thursday against the Giants. Kimbrel was handed a three-run lead in the ninth inning and managed to hang on to record his 20th save of the season. He has successfully converted his last six chances and turned in eight scoreless efforts across 10 total appearances since July 9. Kimbrel has a subpar 4.26 ERA with a 54:16 K:BB across 38 innings on the season, though he continues to have a firm grasp on the closer role in Los Angeles.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Notches 19th save

    Kimbrel earned a save over the Giants on Wednesday, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out one batter over one inning. As has been the case more often than not of late, Kimbrel didn't make things look easy. He allowed three straight batters to reach base (via a walk, single and hit-by-pitch) with one out but managed to wiggle out of the jam and emerge with the save. Kimbrel has allowed at least one baserunner in each of his past seven outings but is nonetheless 4-for-4 in converting save chances over that stretch.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Picks up save in shaky performance

    Kimbrel gave up two earned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one over one inning to earn the save in a 5-4 victory over the Rockies on Friday. Kimbrel was called in to protect a three-run lead on the road at Coors Field in the ninth, and he nearly blew the save after giving up two runs on a bases-loaded single to Randal Grichuk. The final out of the inning came on a nice running catch in foul territory by Trayce Thompson. Despite the shaky performance, Kimbrel picked up his 18th save of the season. Kimbrel hasn't been a lock-down bullpen arm this season, and the veteran closer's ERA has now risen to 4.37. On a positive note, the runs were his first allowed over his last seven outings.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Converts save No. 17

    Kimbrel allowed a hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Giants. Kimbrel picked up his second save in three appearances against the Giants this weekend. Dating back to July 9, the Dodgers' closer has pitched six scoreless innings, allowing five hits and a walk while striking out six in that span. He's now 17-for-20 in save chances this year despite a middling 3.97 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 49:14 K:BB through 34 innings overall.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Secures 16th save

    Kimbrel earned a save over the Giants on Thursday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter over one inning. After the Dodgers took a three-run lead in the bottom of the eighth inning, Kimbrel was called upon to shut the door. The right-hander allowed a bunt single but was otherwise spotless, closing out the contest on an efficient 12 pitches. KImbrel has bounced back from a rough patch to allow only one run over his past six appearances. During that stretch, he's picked up two wins, two saves and one hold while posting a 7:2 K:BB over 5.2 frames.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Earns win Wednesday

    Kimbrel (3-4) picked up the win against St. Louis on Wednesday, striking out one batter in a perfect inning of work. With the Dodgers mounting a late-game comeback, manager Dave Roberts elected to go to Kimbrel with Los Angeles down by a run in the eighth inning. The veteran right-hander needed 17 pitches to get through the frame, but he retired the side in order and qualified for the win as a result of his team scoring twice in the top of the ninth. Evan Phillips ended up notching the save for the Dodgers, but Kimbrel isn't in imminent danger of losing his ninth-inning role despite a few recent rough outings. He's converted 15 of 18 save chances on the season.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Locks down 15th save

    Kimbrel walked one and struck out two in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Cubs. Kimbrel's been a bit spotty of late with nine runs (seven earned) allowed in his last 14 innings. Saturday's save was relatively drama-free despite a leadoff walk to Patrick Wisdom, as Kimbrel retired the next three batters in order. The Dodgers' closer is 15-for-18 in save chances this season while posting a 4.66 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 45:14 K:BB through 29 innings. He has only one stretch of three or more appearances without allowing a run, and that came back in the first month of the campaign in eight outings between April 15 and May 13.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Can't complete save Thursday

    Kimbrel earned a hold against the Cubs on Thursday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning. With the Dodgers ahead by three runs entering the ninth inning, Kimbrel was brought in to secure the final three outs. He struck out Rafael Ortega and Nico Hoerner to begin the frame, but Chicago then had three straight batters reach base, and Kimbrel was removed in favor of Alex Vesia, who got the final out. Per Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times, manager Dave Roberts indicated that Kimbrel was pulled due to his high pitch count (31) and stressful nature of his throws on his second straight day of work, but it's nonetheless concerning that the veteran wasn't allowed to finish off the game, especially considering that he's blown two of his past three save chances and recently sat out a pair of games due to a back issue.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Picks up win in return

    Kimbrel (2-4) earned the win against the Rockies on Wednesday, retiring all three batters he faced in the ninth inning. Kimbrel was forced to sit out two days due to a sore back after being nailed by a line drive Sunday, but he received a clean CT scan and was cleared to return to action Wednesday. The veteran closer came in with the score tied 1-1 in the ninth inning, and he made quick work of three Colorado batters, retiring them in order on five combined pitches. Kimbrel was then credited with the win as a result of Los Angeles scoring the winning run in the bottom of the frame. The positive result was likely a sigh of relief for Kimbrel's fantasy managers given the injury scare and the fact that he had blown two of his previous three save chances.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Available Wednesday

    Kimbrel had a CT scan on his back come back clean, and he'll be available to pitch Wednesday against Colorado, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Kimbrel was struck by a line drive Sunday and has not pitched since then, but he received good news from the CT scan and appears to be ready to return to the mound. Brusdar Graterol picked up his second career save in Kimbrel's stead Tuesday, but it will likely be Kimbrel handling ninth-inning duties if a save opportunity arises Wednesday. Ardaya previously reported that Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is "not even considering" moving the veteran Kimbrel -- who has blown two of his past three save chances -- out of the closer role.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Undergoing CT scan

    Kimbrel (back) is undergoing a CT scan Tuesday and depending on the results could be placed on the injured list, Kirsten Watson of SportsNet LA reports. The veteran right-hander had X-rays come back negative after being struck in the back by a line drive Sunday, but it's not yet clear whether he'll require a stint on the injured list. Blake Treinen (shoulder) and Daniel Hudson (knee) are on the injured list, which should leave Evan Phillips, Brusdar Graterol and Yency Almonte to compete for save chances should Kimbrel be forced to miss any time.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Expects to return in 'a day or two'

    Kimbrel said Monday that his back is sore after being struck by a line drive the day before, but he "thinks he will just need a day or two before he's ready to go again," Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Kimbrel could be unavailable for a game or two, but it does not appear he is facing any sort of extended absence. A couple pitchers could garner consideration if the Dodgers find themselves needing a closer before Kimbrel is ready to return.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Exits Sunday's game

    Kimbrel exited Sunday's game against the Padres in the top of the ninth inning due to an apparent back injury, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Kimbrel was hit by a comebacker with one out in the top of the ninth inning and initially remained in the game, but he was ultimately removed by a trainer after he gave up a double and a single to the next two batters. The extent of his injury isn't yet clear, and whether he's forced to miss time remains to be seen.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Secures save against San Diego

    Kimbrel earned the save against the Padres on Thursday, striking out two batters in a perfect ninth inning. Kimbrel was asked to protect a two-run lead, and he did so successfully without allowing any baserunners. The veteran threw nine of 14 pitches for strikes and fanned multiple batters for the sixth time in his past nine outings. Kimbrel finished June with a 2.70 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB over 10 innings during the month. He picked up four saves in five chances along with one win.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Blown save, win over Atlanta

    Kimbrel (1-3) earned the win Sunday versus Atlanta. He allowed an unearned run on a hit and a walk with two strikeouts in one inning. Kimbrel couldn't protect a one-run lead in the 10th inning, allowing a game-tying RBI single to Matt Olson. While that gave Kimbrel a blown save, the Dodgers pulled ahead in the 11th, and Brusdar Graterol was able to lock down the save. Through 24 innings, Kimbrel is 13-for-15 in saves with a 4.13 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 37:12 K:BB. He's struggling a bit, but given his experience as a closer, the Dodgers are likely to be patient with the veteran right-hander.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Notches 13th save

    Kimbrel gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his 13th save of the season in a 4-1 win over Atlanta. The veteran closer hasn't been consistent lately, but he looked good against the club he broke into the majors with and for whom he posted one of most dominant runs ever by a reliever in the early 2010s. Kimbrel has only blown one save this season for the Dodgers despite a disappointing 4.30 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 35:11 K:BB through 23 innings.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Flirts with danger in save

    Kimbrel allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Angels. Kimbrel has allowed runs in five of his last seven appearances, and he just avoided doing so Tuesday. He allowed a single to Mike Trout, a double to Shohei Ohtani and a walk to Matt Duffy to load the bases with one out before striking out Jared Walsh and Max Stassi. Despite another brush with danger, Kimbrel is now 12-for-13 in saves chances this season. He's added a 4.19 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 29:9 K:BB across 19.1 innings, but he lately looks much more like the shaky 2019 and 2020 guy than the dominant pitcher he rebounded to last year.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Back from paternity list

    Kimbrel (personal) was activated from the paternity list Friday. Kimbrel landed on the paternity list Tuesday and is back with the Dodgers after spending a few days with his family. The 34-year-old will reclaim the closer role from Daniel Hudson, who picked up one save during Kimbrel's absence.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Goes on paternity leave

    The Dodgers placed Kimbrel on the paternity list Tuesday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Phil Bickford was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City to take Kimbrel's spot in the bullpen, but Daniel Hudson likely represents the top option for saves out of the Dodgers' bullpen while the veteran closer is away from the team. According to MLB rules, players placed on the paternity list have to miss at least 1-to-3 games, so Kimbrel could sit out the Dodgers' entire three-game series with the White Sox that begins Tuesday.

  • Dodgers' Craig Kimbrel: Multi-inning loss

    Kimbrel (0-2) took the loss during Sunday's 5-4 defeat at the hands of the Mets, allowing an unearned run on one hit with three strikeouts in two innings. Kimbrel tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning on 10 pitches but surrendered a leadoff double to J.D. Davis in the 10th that brought home placed runner Pete Alonso and stuck him with the loss. The outing was the 34-year-old's first of more than one inning, though his 19 pitches weren't excessive. The loss accentuates a rough five-game stretch that features six runs surrendered in six innings, two losses and one blown save.
