Craig Kimbrel had a rough ninth inning, allowing a one out double followed by two walks and a sacrifice fly that scored a run. He did chip in two strikeouts though.
KImbrel's ERA is now 2.18 on the year, and as nice as it was to see him in a save opportunity, him not coming through makes it hard to see him getting more opportunities this season.
Craig Kimbrel pitched the seventh inning on Saturday, allowing one hit while striking out three batters.
It was Kimbrel's third win of the season, but unfortunately can't be started in fantasy due to his lack of save opportunities.
Craig Kimbrel came into the ninth with a seven run lead but ended up giving up three earned runs on two hits and a walk. He would strike out two batters though.
A day after Kimbrel was trusted to close out a tight game, he was put out there again and failed to shut the door. Thankfully the stakes were low, but with performances like these it's hard to see him getting the closer role anytime soon.
Craig Kimbrel pitched one inning, allowing one hit while also striking out one batter to earn his 24th save of the season and first with the White Sox.
While it's clear Kimbrel feels more comfortable as a ninth inning reliever, Hendricks is still the pitcher to roster in fantasy. The only reason Kimbrel got the save opportunity is because Hendricks had thrown 39 pitches just two days earlier.
Craig Kimbrel didn't allow a ball to leave the infield on Monday, but lost the game after an infield hit, a wild pitch, a sacrifice ground ball, and another wild pitch. He would also walk a batter and strike out two.
It was a rough inning for Kimbrel, who looked pretty dominant much like he has all season but suffered from a couple ill timed wild pitches. He'll look to bounce back in his next opportunity, although it will likely remain the eighth inning.
