Player Notes
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.

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.

Craig Kimbrel allowed one run in 2/3 of an inning, but escaped with his fourth save of the season in Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Mets.

Advice: The Braves entered the ninth inning up 4-0, confident they wouldn't need Kimbrel, but Jordan Walden put two men on with one out and manager Fredi Gonzalez had to use his closer. Kimbrel allowed both inherited runners to score along with one of his own, but was able to slither away with the save. Mr. Automatic looked somewhat human.
