Atlanta Braves RP Craig Kimbrel (shoulder) said he's been bothered by the shoulder issue on and off since spring training, but he doesn't think it's serious and expects to be back pitching soon. "There's no reason to push it this early in the year," Kimbrel said. "It's something that doesn't really hinder me on the field. Being a pitcher, things get sore now and then.

Braves | Craig Kimbrel unavailable

Mon, 20 May 2013 15:49:29 -0700

Atlanta Braves RP Craig Kimbrel is unavailable to pitch Monday, May 20, after saving all three games over the weekend. RPs Luis Avilan and Cory Gearrin will be mixed and matched late in the game if a save situation arises Monday against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Avilan and Gearrin shouldn't be added for one day in case either get thrown into a save situation against the Twins. Both pitchers will be used heavily in setup roles now that Jonny Venters (elbow) and Eric O'Flaherty (elbow) are out for the season.
