Kimbrel has made five appearances this spring and his stats are vintage Kimbrel. Five innings pitched with one hit, three walks, and six strikeouts. His fastball is hitting 97 with regularity, proving he is ready for another great season.

Fantasy Impact: Kimbrel will get his saves this year despite the less than adequate offense. With Jason Grilli and Jim Johnson in setup roles, the route to saves has been paved. Draft him in all formats with confidence.


Kimbrel just keeps rocking along. He started out a little shaky this spring but he has allowed just one hit in his three outings and has yet to give up a run.

Fantasy Impact: Kimbrel is a solid closer who will again dominate but will be limited a bit due to an anemic Braves offense. Draft in all formats.
