Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Collects 33rd save Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel struck out two batters in a clean ninth frame to earn his 33rd save of the season Saturday against the Rays.

Kimbrel needed just 12 pitches to put the Rays down in order en route to converting his first save opportunity in over two weeks. Despite the lack of save chances, he's still strung together seven consecutive scoreless appearances, striking out 16 batters and allowing just five baserunners over seven innings during that stretch. He continues to be one of the most reliable relievers in the game, as evidenced by his 1.43 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and a 119:14 K:BB through 63 innings this season.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Notches 32nd save Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Friday to collect his 32nd save of the season in a 4-1 win over the Yankees.

It's been a month since his last blown save, as Kimbrel continues to put together one of the most dominant seasons of his already impressive career. While most of the focus naturally goes towards his 16.4 K/9, it's actually been his control that's set this campaign apart for the 29-year-old -- after stumbling to a 5.1 BB/9 last year, he's dialed up a career-best 1.7 mark in 2017.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Nails down save No. 31
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel struck out two in a perfect ninth for his 31st save Tuesday against Toronto.

It took him 22 pitches (17 strikes), which is a lot for a flawless inning, but it's hard to argue with the results. Kimbrel still looked good in bouncing back from Monday's rare bad outing, turning in his 11th scoreless effort in his last 12 appearances and continuing to polish his stats in what's been one of the most incredible seasons of his illustrious career.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Nabs 30th save despite allowing homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel picked up his 30th save despite allowing two runs on a hit and two walks Monday against Toronto.

This was Kimbrel's first time allowing a run in 10 appearances dating back to Aug. 1. His wildness almost cost him, as he walked a batter before a Justin Smoak homer and then put the tying run on base with another walk, but he managed to escape without any further damage. Despite the rare long ball, Kimbrel still has a 1.61 ERA on the season.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Collects 29th save Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
