Boston Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel is chasing history with his incredible run so far in the 2017 season.

Kimbrel almost is automatic when he comes out to close a game for Boston. Kimbrel is 17-for-18 in save opportunities this season, and leads all major-league relievers in strikeouts per nine innings with 17.89.

The right-hander now is second in MLB history in career K/9 behind New York Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman.
