Player Notes
Craig Kimbrel struck out two in a perfect inning while notching his sixth save of the season in Wednesday's win over the Marlins.

Advice: This was the best Kimbrel looked in three appearances since he was shut down for a few days with shoulder soreness. He sat mostly in the 95-96 mph range but touched 98 mph and featured a nasty slider while getting a flyout and two punchouts to end it. It appears that the shoulder issue will likely just be a minor bump in the road for the closer.

Craig Kimbrel took his first blown save after allowing an unearned run in the ninth Monday against the Marlins.

Advice: The run was unearned because the second baserunner of the inning reached on catcher's interference. What that doesn't acknowledge is that pinch-runner Reed Johnson probably would have scored the tying run from first on Derek Dietrich's double anyway, assuming that he would have gotten a better read on the ball there than he did while standing on second. Anyway, Kimbrel just couldn't locate his fastball early in the inning, and while he did find his slider in striking out the final three guys he faced to preserve the time, he was still leaving the heater farther up than he wanted to. While he maintains he's healthy, this makes two shaky outings since his brief shoulder-related absence last week.

Craig Kimbrel gave up two earned runs and recorded only two outs Saturday against the Mets.

Advice: It was Kimbrel's first outing in a week -- he was dealing with mild shoulder soreness -- and he had to be pulled with one out to go in the bottom of the ninth. Jordan Walden entered to pick up the one-out save. For what it's worth, Kimbrel told reporters after the game that his shoulder felt fine and that he wanted to stay in the game.

Craig Kimbrel (shoulder) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and declared himself "ready."

Advice: According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, manager Fredi Gonzalez was "noncommittal" about using Kimbrel on Wednesday night because of the cold weather in Philadelphia. Kimbrel has been unavailable the past two games with mild shoulder soreness.

Craig Kimbrel (shoulder) played catch Tuesday.

Advice: Kimbrel was unavailable to close out Monday's win over the Phillies due to shoulder soreness, but both he and the team downplayed the situation after the game. In fact, he's hoping to pitch Tuesday if the weather doesn't wipe out the game in Philadelphia. It's encouraging news, but fantasy owners should continue to cross their fingers.

Wed, Apr 16 Rotoworld
Craig Kimbrel is being listed as day-to-day with a sore right shoulder.

Advice: Obviously it's potentially worrisome anytime the shoulder is involved, but Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez isn't concerned, categorizing it as "normal soreness." Kimbrel is expected to be unavailable only for a few days. As a precaution, his fantasy owners should go ahead and pick up David Carpenter just in case. Carpenter converted the save Monday with a scoreless inning.
