Craig Kimbrel Rumor Thread 

The best closer in the game is on the trading block.  Let’s try and keep up with Craig Kimbrel rumors.

The Yankees are in hot pursuit of Padres close Craig Kimbrel.  Per John Morosi on MLB Network Friday morning, the Astros top target at this stage is also Kimbrel.  Multiple sources also reporting the Red Sox have jumped into the mix.

Update: Looks like the Yankees are starting to come around…


Update: Ken Rosenthal chimes in.  Essentially says this is a game of chicken between the Padres and Yankees.


Obviously money is not an issue with the Yankees, but they are reluctant to give up one of their top two prospects RHP – Luis Servino  (#16) and OF- Aaron Judge (#21)

Other teams looking for help in the pen at the Cubs, Blue Jays, and Astros.
