News: Kimbrel struck out two while retiring the side in order en route to his 37th save of the season Sunday night versus the A's. Impact: After picking up a loss back on August 2, Kimbrel has been dominant over his last half-dozen outings. During this span, the Braves' closer has gone 5-for-5 in his save chances while recording seven strikeouts and allowing just four baserunners across six scoreless frames.(RotoWire, )

News: Kimbrel recorded a sloppy save Wednesday against the Dodgers, as he loaded the bases, but escaped with a game-ending double play. He allowed two hits and a walk, striking out one. Impact: That was the story of the evening -- the Dodgers constantly threatened, but couldn't break through. It was also Kimbrel's first outing since Sunday, when he pitched for the third consecutive day.(RotoWire, )

News: Kimbrel recorded his 34th save of the season in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Nationals, striking out one while retiring the side in order during a scoreless ninth inning. Impact: Even though he was on the mound for the third consecutive night, Kimbrel was in typical dominant form Sunday versus the Nationals. The All-Star closer needed just nine pitches (eight strikes) in order to preserve a 3-1 advantage over the NL East leaders and showed little sign of fatigue. With that said, it is highly unlikely that manager Fredi Gonzalez would elect to deploy Kimbrel during Monday's bout with the Dodgers.(RotoWire, )

News: Kimbrel was on his game Friday night, tossing a perfect ninth inning to preserve a 7-6 Atlanta win over Washington and log his 33rd save. Impact: After falling behind 7-0 after five innings, the Nats were diligently trying to come back, before Kimbrel shut the door. Kimbrel (33 saves, 2.00 ERA) hasn't been quite as dominant as in recent years, but he is still near the top of the closer list when it comes to dependability.(RotoWire, )
