Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Bounces back Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel tossed a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his 24th save in Sunday night's victory over the Yankees.

Kimbrel blew his first save at Fenway Park on Saturday night, but he bounced back Sunday and kept the Yankees off the scoreboard despite allowing two runners to reach base. Though Sunday's save was his first of July, he did notch at least seven in each of the three prior months, and will continue seeing ample opportunities to close out games for the first-place Red Sox.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Blows first save at Fenway
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel gave up a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth to blow his third save of the season during Saturday's 16-inning loss to the Yankees.

Kimbrel was called upon to earn a four-out save, and started off by winning a 10-pitch at-bat with Aaron Judge to get the Red Sox out of the eighth inning with a one-run lead. But on the third throw to leadoff batter Matt Holliday in the bottom of the ninth, Kimbrel allowed a monster shot over the Green Monster to blow his second save in the last three attempts. Besides the home run, Kimbrel struck out all three opposing batters in the ninth, bumping his K/9 to 16.2. Interestingly, all three of Kimbrel's blown saves this season have come on home runs to leadoff hitters at the onset of the ninth inning.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Blows save against Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel allowed a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to blow his second save of the season during Monday's win over Texas.

Kimbrel has converted 23 of 25 save opportunities this season with a 1.23 ERA, 0.52 WHIP and 16.0 K/9, so there's no cause for concern following Monday's hiccup. He simply got beat on a good pitch to a dangerous hitter in Mike Napoli. Boston battling back to win in extra innings definitely softened the blow.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Collects 23rd save Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel tossed a perfect inning with one strikeout to notch his 23rd save Friday against the Blue Jays.

Kimbrel had one of his easier save opportunities, as he came on with a three-run lead, and he easily closed the door on the Jays in the 11th inning. In addition to his saves, his 1.01 ERA and 0.48 WHIP make him on of the very best closers in the league.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Spins scoreless ninth for 22nd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel struck out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning to collect his 22nd save of the season during Thursday's win over Minnesota.

Kimbrel has allowed just two runs over 25.2 innings through 25 appearances since blowing his last save April 20. He's converted 16 consecutive saves since while striking out 46 batters during that stretch, and he now owns a dominant 1.04 ERA, 0.49 WHIP and 16.4 K/9 for the season. Continue to view Kimbrel as an elite asset.
