Jonny Venters dominant in setup role 

June, 13, 2011

The Atlanta Braves are blessed with two relievers at the end of the game with raw stuff that can best be described as ridiculous.

Closer Craig Kimbrel has his inconsistencies, but when he's finding the strike zone he can be as unhittable as they come. For some more background, I did a whole blog entry on Kimbrel's stuff and those inconsistencies early last year.

On many other teams, you wouldn't even think about using someone else to close if you had Kimbrel at your disposal. But many other teams don't have southpaw Jonny Venters, either.

"I've felt comfortable all season just going out and going right at guys," Venters said, "and it's been working out thus far."
