Analysis: Kimbrel has been outstanding of late, posting an 0.96 ERA while converting all six save opportunities in his last nine appearances.

Analysis: Since missing nearly a month with a torn left meniscus, Kimbrel has gone 3 for 3 in save chances while allowing one run and one hit with 10 strikeouts in five innings over five appearances. However, he's been wild with six walks over that stretch.

Analysis: Making his third appearance since returning from the DL last week, Kimbrel admitted afterward that he's still dealing with soreness in his surgically repaired left knee. Boston has an experienced and capable alternative to close in Brad Ziegler, so Kimbrel's save chances could be reduced until he gets closer to full health.

Analysis: Kimbrel made his first appearance since having surgery to repair a medial meniscus tear in his left knee. He allowed a walk, and Kyle Seager reached on a third-strike wild pitch, but Kimbrel got two other strikeouts to end it. ''As much as we talked before the game about Kimbrel and giving him a little breathing room, that one-run margin wasn't a heck of a lot,'' Boston manager John Farrell said. ''He was very good. It looked like he hadn't missed any time.''
