RP - CHC
Expert NoteView More Notes
Kimbrel waited to sign until months into the season, and the results weren't pretty. He battled injury and was entirely ineffective, pitching to an 8.10 ERA and walking more than five batters per nine innings. Whether the complete lack of control was a continuing trend or just due to rust/injuries. But, either way, the price on Kimbrel should be the cheapest in years, and if you're waiting on saves, he's as good an option to take a chance on as anyone.

Craig Kimbrel gets lit up on Sunday
Craig Kimbrel allowed two runs on three hits while striking out two across 2/3 of an inning in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks.
Kimbrell has looked horrible so far this spring, owning a 16.20 ERA across one 2/3 innings. He should be locked in as the Cubs closer, but the 31-year old will need to improve his 6.53 ERA from last season in order to become a top-10 closer in fantasy once again. Kimbrell will look to turn things around in his next couple of outings before spring training ends.

Closers feel like more reliable investments this season than starting pitchers, many of whom will not see anything close to their usual workloads and face greater-than-usual injury risk as they attempt to ramp up their arm strength during an abbreviated "Spring Training."
