Newson June 9th, 2015No Comments

Craig Kimbrel notched the 200th save of his major-league career in the Padres’ 11-inning victory against the Braves. Kimbrel reached the 200-save mark in his 318th major-league game, 41 games quicker than any other pitcher has hit that plateau. (The old record was 359 games by Jonathan Papelbon.) Kimbrel posted his 200th save only 11 days after his 27th birthday. He’s the second-youngest pitcher at the time of his 200th career save, behind Francisco Rodriguez, who hit that milestone with the Angels on Sept. 2, 2008 at age 26 years, 239 days.
