Craig Kimbrel (35), ‘the number one save player in active play’, returned to the Eastern Division of the National League. Kimbrel’s contract with the Philadelphia Phillies has been officially announced.

On the 5th (Korean time), the Philadelphia club officially announced a one-year-$10 million contract with Kimbrel. That means Kimbrel passed Philadelphia’s physical.

With this, Kimbrel returned to the National League East Division after 9 years since 2014. Kimbrel played for the Atlanta Braves from 2010 to 2014.

Since then, Kimbrel has worn uniforms with the San Diego Padres, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, and Los Angeles Dodgers.

Kimbrel is a closer with the best saves in his career, but his recent form is not good. Last year he had 5 blown saves and a 3.75 earned run average with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

In particular, Kim Brel had the most difficult year since his major league debut, including the humiliation of being excluded from the Los Angeles Dodgers’ postseason roster last year. 메이저사이트

Accordingly, his contract size is only 1 year – 10 million dollars, despite the ‘number 1 active save’. Philadelphia won’t expect much from Kimbrel either.

Kimbrel recorded 394 saves through last year. If he adds six, he will become the first active player and seventh all-time to reach 400 saves.
