Craig Kimbrel will stay with the Red Sox in 2018 after the club picked up his $13 million option Thursday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Fantasy Impact

Craig Kimbrel strikes out two in win over Athletics

Craig Kimbrel worked in a non-save situation and struck out two batters in an inning of work as the Red Sox defeated the Athletics on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

The Red Sox are winning but have not provided Kimbrel with many save opportunities lately. The last time Kimbrel was in a save situation was on September 1. That could change quickly and fantasy owners need to be patient as Kimbrel is one of the top closers in baseball.
