Rookie Record


With his 41st save of the season last evening, Atlanta Braves’ closer Craig Kimbrel set the record for most saves by a Rookie. Kimbrel’s 41 saves leads the Majors and his 1.64 ERA is the lowest amongst regular closers. Check out Kimbrel’s awesome numbers.

Also, Kimbrel’s 3.2 WAR is the highest amongst all Major League relievers and Rookies.  With such fantastic numbers, Kimbrel will most likely be the NL Rookie of the Year.  Even though Kimbrel has proven to be the best reliever in baseball this season, can his success continue into October and help lead Atlanta to their first NLDS appearance since 2005?
