Craig Kimbrel blew the save on Thursday allowing one run on one hit with two strikeouts in the loss to the Marlins.
Kimbrel blew his fifth save in 35 opportunities Thursday as he fell to 0-2 on the year as he also took the loss. It was his third blown save since June 7th and while his overall stats are stellar there is a chance he could be trending in dangerous waters as his save percentage this season is in the bottom half among current NL closers...something to keep in mind come next draft season or if you are in a dynasty league and are out of contention yet own Kimbrel.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
