Although still unsigned, it's safe to assume Kimbrel won't settle for a setup role. After all, no reliever in MLB history holsters a lower career FIP than his 1.96. Despite a concerning walk uptick (4.48 BB/9), he posted a 2.74 ERA with 96 strikeouts and 42 saves in 2018. Somewhat surprisingly, his ADP hasn't suffered from a disastrous postseason and drawn out free agency. That should change if he remains unsigned into spring training. The closer it gets to Opening Day, the higher the likelihood of a delayed or rusty start to the season.

Craig Kimbrel extremely unlikely to re-sign with Boston

Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner said on Monday that it's "extremely unlikely" they re-sign Craig Kimbrel.

Fantasy Impact

It is still unknown on who wants to sign the elite closer as no one has really been interested in matching his demands. Assuming Kimbrel isn't playing for Boston in 2019 expect Matt Barnes or Ryan Brasier to takeover the closer role.
