Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Locks down 37th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Saturday to record his 37th save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Rays.

The closer had been scuffling in late July and early August, allowing runs in five of six appearances at one point, but he seems to be back on track now. Kimbrel's 37 saves are already his highest total in three seasons with Boston, and a big finish to the campaign would allow him to challenge the career-high 50 he posted in 2013.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Secures another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel allowed a leadoff walk but recorded one strikeout in a scoreless ninth inning to record the save Tuesday against the Phillies.

There was a bit less drama for Kimbrel this time around, but the tying run still moved into scoring position when Scott Kingery stole second base with two outs. The 30-year-old is now 36-for-40 in save opportunities this season with a 2.52 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 76 strikeouts across 50 innings.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Allows homer but manages save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel allowed a home run but struck out the side to save the the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader sweep against the Orioles.

Kimbrel allowed a big fly to Trey Mancini with two out in the ninth but whiffed Chris Davis to wrap things up. With 34 saves, a 2.63 ERA, a 13.5 K/9 and a 3.9 BB/9, Kimbrel continues to rank among fantasy's best closers.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Blows save but still earns win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel (3-1) earned the win against the Blue Jays on Tuesday after blowing his fourth save of the season. He allowed a solo home run but otherwise struck out the side with no walks.

Kimbrel entered the ninth inning with a 5-4 lead but gave up a one-out home run to Justin Smoak, sending the game to extra innings. Thankfully the Red Sox offense responded with a five-spot during the tenth inning to let the right-hander off the hook. In his last five appearances the 30-year-old has blown two saves with five runs allowed on six hits and five walks over five innings. Prior to his recent struggles, Kimbrel had allowed only eight runs runs across 41.2 innings for the season.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Nearly surrenders lead in non-save spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out two in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Yankees.

It was a non-save situation for Kimbrel, who ceded one run and loaded the bases before getting out of the jam. Aside from his lights-out 2017 season, non-save assignments have been problematic for Kimbrel since he joined the Red Sox in 2016. The closer has a 3.72 ERA (four earned runs, 9.2 innings) in such splits in 2018 and a 1.98 ERA (eight earned runs, 36.1 innings) when a save is on the line. There was some discussion following the game about bringing Kimbrel in after starter Nathan Eovaldi was so efficient over eight scoreless innings (93 pitches), but it comes down to the fact Kimbrel hadn't pitched in five days and needed the work.
