Dodgers' Kenley Jansen Named NL Reliever of the Year

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen Named NL Reliever of the Year”

Boston Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel was named the victor of the Mariano Rivera Award on Saturday as the best relief pitcher in the American League during the 2017 season.

Both are two-time winners, with Jansen repeating as the Trevor Hoffman Winner as the National League's top reliever.

For the sixth time in the past seven seasons, Kimbrel was named to the All-Star team, the second consecutive year he has done so with the Red Sox.

The presentations were made Saturday night before Game 4 of the World Series, where Jansen was playing with his Dodgers. He averaged 16.4 strikeouts per nine innings compared to 1.8 walks. Kimbrel received the award for posting a microscopic 1.43 ERA and 0.68 WHIP while striking out 126 batters in 69 innings for the Red Sox this season. This season Jansen recorded 10 saves of four outs or more.

Over with the Boston Red Sox, Craig Kimbrel finished the year 5-0 with a 1.43 ERA, locking down 35 saves. Over that span, he struck out 109 batters and allowed only one unearned run. Kimbrel is the first player to earn the award in each league.

The inaugural winners in 2014 were Kimbrel, then of the Atlanta Braves, in the NL and Greg Holland of the Kansas City Royals for the AL.
