5/13:Boston Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel recorded his 11th save of the year when he came in to Saturday’s game against the Rays with a 6-3 lead. Kimbrel pitched a perfect ninth inning, striking out two. Kimbrel has been lights out this year and currently sits second in the MLB for saves as he continues to chase Rockies closer Greg Holland. A large part of Kimbrel’s success and 1.08 ERA is the phenomenal 17.82 strikeouts per nine. Batters are hitting just .107 against Kimbrel in 16 2/3 innings this year.--Jared T - RotoBaller

Beat Writer Chatter

  • @PeteAbe: Long inning leads to Matt Barnes coming in. Three days off in a row for Kimbrel. That’s big.
  • @PeteAbe: 61 pitches through 5 for Rodriguez. Good day for him to be economical. Sox want to go 7 + Kelly + Kimbrel today.
  • @PeteAbe: @yazdog8 So you would preferred to keep Margot instead of 3 years of Kimbrel? That is what you’re saying?
  • @PeteAbe: @yazdog8 So Sale and Kimbrel weren’t much?
  • @PeteAbe: @mjvulch So no fortitude by Kimbrel, Betts, Bogaerts, Moreland, Benintendi, Pedroia, Leon, Bradley, Vazquez, Scott? None?
  • @PeteAbe: 10 pitches for Kimbrel. He’ll likely stay in if the Sox take the lead. Hembree, who is warming, otherwise.
  • @PeteAbe: With Oakland’s 4-5-6 hitters up in the bottom of the 9th, Farrell goes to Kimbrel in a 2-2 game.
  • @PeteAbe: Had the Sox taken the lead, suspect Kimbrel stays in the game.
  • @PeteAbe: Kimbrel on for bottom of the 9th in a tie game. Easy call. Hembree 1.1 innings yesterday. Otherwise Taylor or Abad.
  • @PeteAbe: #RedSox 6, #Cardinals 3.

    Craig Kimbrel has retired 43 of the last 46 batters he has faced including 23 of the last 24.
  • @PeteAbe: @MichaelF5370 Margot was one of the prospects they traded for Kimbrel. You should be OK that deal. Better than OK, actually.
  • @PeteAbe: Righthanded hitters are 0 for 30 against Craig Kimbrel with 17 strikeouts, yet have both of the walks he has issued.
