Braves’ Craig Kimbrel Says Shoulder Is Fine

Atlanta Braves closer Craig Kimbrel has not pitched since Saturday due to soreness in his right shoulder, but said he had no issues with the shoulder during a bullpen session on Wednesday.

“Nothing was uncomfortable and I felt great out there. I’m ready to get back into a game in a save situation,” Kimbrel said following his throwing session.

That is great news for Braves fans as the 25-year-old Kimbrel has posted a 15-7 record with a 1.39 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, 144 saves, and 393 strikeouts in 233 innings pitched in his four+ seasons with the Braves       and is considered one of baseball’s best closers.
