Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Boston exercises 2018 option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel will stay with the Red Sox in 2018 after the club picked up his $13 million option Thursday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

The closer will remain in Boston for at least another year after posting a 1.43 ERA and 0.68 WHIP over 69 innings in the 2017 regular season. Chris Sale's option was also picked up by the team Thursday, as the Red Sox begin preparing for the 2018 campaign.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Tosses scoreless frame in non-save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel allowed a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Astros in a non-save situation.

The star closer hadn't pitched in a game for five days, so the Red Sox opted to use him in an effort to keep the team just one run behind. Kimbrel did need 15 pitches (11 strikes) to complete the frame, but it likely won't jeopardize his availability for Saturday's contest if a save situation arises. He now holds a 1.32 ERA and an absurd 16.3 K/9 on the season to go with his 35 saves.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Notches 34th save of 2017 on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel pitched a scoreless inning on one hit to earn his 34th save of the season Friday against the Reds.

Kimbrel was protecting a one-run lead, and despite giving up a hit, was able to close out the contest on just eight pitches. With a microscopic 1.36 ERA on the season, he continues to be one of the elite closers in the majors.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Makes second straight non-save appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to extend Tuesday's game into extra innings where Boston eventually defeated Baltimore, 1-0.

Kimbrel has been used two consecutive nights in the same non-save situation: the ninth inning of a tied game. Overall, he's pitched five times in the last six days, so it wouldn't be surprising if the gets a night off in the series finale Wednesday.
