Summary

The eight-time All-Star has appeared in 35 games and racked up a 0.53 ERA with 58 strikeouts and only 11 hits and 11 walks allowed over 33.2 innings.So without further hesitation, let's get into the 33-year-old's potential trade value and then look at five teams where he would fit best.Kimbrel is in the middle of a season that's not only good, but historically good. Even if that doesn't come to fruition, Kimbrel is surely worth at least one blue-chip talent.If it's ultimately a question of which contenders need Kimbrel the most and also have the capital to pay for him, we like the following five teams.Dave Dombrowski already has an extensive track record of blockbuster trades. Though the Phillies are second in the National League East at 47-45, their bullpen has a 4.62 ERA and is in the red for win probability added.Even if adding him wouldn't solve everything, going back to the Kimbrel well is the best possible move that Dombrowski can make.
