Kimbrel Becomes Quickest To 250 Saves In MLB History
He drives us crazy with his lack of command and lead-off walks in the ninth inning, but Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel is now the quickest to 250 saves in MLB history. That's quite an achievement for the 28-year old—who reached the milestone in just 403 appearances. Ironically, that's the fastest since another Red Sox closer—Jonathan Papelbon—did it in 451 appearances. Moreover, Kimbrel is now sixth on the active closer list—just 11 saves behind Fernando Rodney. This year, Kimbrel has 25 saves for The Carmine Hose.
