Craig Kimbrel picks up a hold Thursday

Craig Kimbrel pitched one scoreless inning, allowing one hit, and earning his second hold of the season in a win over San Diego Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Kimbrel was removed from the closer's role recently, so it was positive to see him succeed in a middle relief role. The 34-year-old has a 3.95 ERA, .235 BAA, and a 10.42 K/9 ratio in 60 games this season.

Craig Kimbrel walks in winning run in Tuesday's loss

Craig Kimbrel picked up the loss after allowing three walks, including a walk with the bases loaded to give San Diego the win, and striking out one in the 10th inning of Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Padres.

Fantasy Impact

Kimbrel was given the task to send the game to the 11th inning on Tuesday, but yet again he had trouble in the pressure situation. After getting Manny Machado to strike out with runners on the corners and two outs, the reliever proceeded to walk the next two batters he faced, bringing home the winning run. The 34-year-old has not been reliable in the slightest this season, as seen by his 4.02 ERA and his 1.36 WHIP. Given that he was taken out of the primary closer role for the Dodgers, he cannot be trusted in fantasy for the final week of the regular season.

Craig Kimbrel picks up the win for the Dodgers on Thursday night

Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth inning on Thursday, coming in during a tie game, he struck out one, walked one, and gave up one hit for one earned run as he earned the win in the Dodgers' 3-2 game against the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

Kimbrel has been rather awful this season despite what his saves category may show, as he has pitched to the tune of a 4.14 ERA with a WHIP of 1.34. The Dodgers reliever was saved yet again by the teams offense with late game heroics, thus his 6-6 record was nearly a 5-7 record. The 34-year-old needs to be rostered due to his use in high leverage situations, however managers will certainly feel uneasy at times having to stream the old veteran who is struggling with consistency.

Craig Kimbrel picks up the win over the Giants on Sunday night

Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth inning on Sunday, striking out one and getting through the inning clean as he went on to earn the win for the Dodgers in the teams 4-3 game against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Kimbrel has been hit or miss this season and on Sunday night it was a hit performance as he managed to sneak out the win while improving his record to 5-6 on the season. The Dodgers' reliever has pitched to the tune of an 3.96 ERA with a WHIP of 1.34 on the year. The 34-year-old needs to be rostered due to his usage by the team, however he has certainly been a thorn in managers sides at times this season.

Craig Kimbrel takes loss to Diamondbacks on Wednesday

Craig Kimbrel pitched 2/3 of the ninth inning on Wednesday night, striking out one, walking one, and giving up one hit for two earned runs as he took the loss for the Dodgers in the teams' 5-3 loss against the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

Kimbrel took his sixth loss of the season on Wednesday night, which pushed his record to 4-6 on the year. The Dodgers' reliever has pitched to the tune of an 4.03 ERA with a WHIP of 1.36. The 34-year-old should still be rostered as the team has yet to change who fills the role of closer, the amount of losses he has taken is certainly discouraging though.
