hits 400 saves and becomes the eighth pitcher in MLB history to accomplish the feat.
Kimbrel reached the milestone, his 400th save, on Friday, May 26, in a game against the Atlanta Braves at Trist Park.
Kimbrel achieved the milestone in his 730th career appearance, making him the third fastest player to reach 400 saves.
The only pitchers to reach 400 saves in fewer games were Mariano Rivera (697) and Trevor Hoffman (706).
Kimbrel recorded his first 186 saves with the Braves from 2010-2014.
Kimbrel's first career appearance was on May 7, 2010, against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
He achieved his 200th save while pitching for the Padres in a game against the Braves at Turner Field in 2015.
Kimbrel's 400th save happening in Atlanta was fitting, as Jansen also reached the same milestone in the same ballpark with the Red Sox on May 10.
This achievement highlights Kimbrel's remarkable career as one of the elite closers in Major League Baseball.
