Craig Kimbrel added to his resume when MLB presented him with the Delivery Man of the Year award on Thursday. He's the first Atlanta Braves pitcher to win the award for the big leagues' best reliever.

Kimbrel tied the Baltimore Orioles' Jim Johnson with 50 saves this season to lead the Major Leagues. He only blew four of his 54 save opportunities en route to a 1.21 ERA in 68 appearances.

The final 54 appearances were particularly dominant, even for Kimbrel. He compiled a 0.54 ERA and .151 opponents batting average in 53 2/3 innings.

Kimbrel is the 11th pitcher to record 50 saves and is the only pitcher to record 40 saves in each of his first three seasons.
