Craig Kimbrel has been named American League reliever of the month for the month of May. This is a new award this season, making Kimbrel its second ever recipient.

In the month of May, Kimbrel recorded seven saves with a perfect 0.00 ERA. He finished with 25 strikeouts, while allowing just one hit in 12 2/3 innings pitched.

After this stellar May, Kimbrelís save count now sits at 15, while holding an ERA of 0.75 and striking out 45 in only 24 innings pitched. After a finger injury left Kimbrel less than expected last season, this is a great sign for the closer the Red Sox hope to have as they go forward this season.weei.com
