I took a chance in the 18th round of the private league draft and grabbed Kimbrel, the Braves' rookie closer. He has rewarded both me and the Braves with 32 saves so far, already the most ever for a Braves rookie. He broke the Major League record for most saves for a rookie before the All-Star break and was selected to his first All-Star Game. He is very much in the running for National League Rookie of the Year.
