No more are the days where Kimbrel strikes out 16 hitters per nine innings or keeps a WHIP below 0.9, in fact, his BB-rate was significantly higher last season. Be careful to not get ahead of yourself, drafting based on who he has been.

Craig Kimbrel gets an inning of work against Team USA

Craig Kimbrel allowed one hit and didn't walk a batter while striking out two in one inning of relief during Thursday's game against Team USA.

Fantasy Impact

Kimbrel hopes to improve on a rough 2016 season when he battled injuries along with control issues. While he managed to save 31 games for the Red Sox he did end up with a 3.40 ERA and 5.1 BB/9. Kimbrel is healthy coming into 2017 and should feel more comfortable in Boston in his second season. Expect a bounce back year from the closer and he is a good value in fantasy drafts as his ADP has dropped.
