Kimbrel bounced back in a huge way last season, cutting his walk rate to 9.8%, his lowest since 2017. He was vintage Kimbrel, piling up the strikeouts and saves until a mid-season trade to the White Sox where he became the setup man to Liam Hendriks. He was slated to be a late-round pick with Chicago, but with the trade to the Dodgers, he immediately becomes a top-5 closer. Expect 35-plus saves and elite ratios.

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.
