The Pirates' stopper may have some issues. At least the understudy to grab is crystal-clear. Plus, is something still wrong with Craig Kimbrel?

Craig Kimbrel was removed from the ninth inning tonight with Jordan Walden closing out the game for his first save of the year. Kimbrel has struggled with shoulder fatigue recently and although he was iffy tonight, it doesn't seem to be injury related as his fastball was still reaching 97-98 mph. I would attribute tonight's outing due to rust over any huge injury concerns but would still keep an eye on the situation. - Benjamin Pasinkoff

He had not been used for a week due to shoulder issues and then struggled against the Mets in a non-save situation (2 ER on 3 H and 1 BB, striking out 1, over 0.2 IP) and had to be replaced by Jordan Walden. It's a situation that needs to be monitored. - Eric Stashin

Bravos fans and Craig Kimbrel owners held their collective breath when a sore shoulder shut the reliever down for the past few days. However, Kimbrel should not hit the DL and will be back to action soon after experiencing no discomfort in a recent bullpen session. - Luckey Helms

Shoulder soreness is always worrisome, but the Braves claim that Craig Kimbrel's shoulder soreness is normal. His fastball is down is down a tick, but everything else seems okay. - Rich Migliorisi

So, everyone can give a complete exhale that two save-category standard bearers were not shut down with shoulder problems. Craig Kimbrel and Koji Uehara both threw bullpens yesterday, and are all systems go for the rest of the week.  Not like any of you have them, because we don't and shouldn't overpay for saves on draft day.  So if either of these guys fell to ya, good on...
