Craig Kimbrel (ATL) vs Zach Braddock (MIL)

Hey everybody!  Do any of you know a lot about either Craig Kimbrel or Zach Braddock, who could possibly be Closers-in-the-making?  They both have old Closers blocking them (assuming Axford doesn't stick at CL), so they could potentially take over as Closer in the next year or two.  They both seem to be strikeout machines, but they also both seem to lack any kind of control, walking absurd amounts of batters.  At the same time, it looked like minor leaguers couldn't hit them at all!  They're both now in the majors, but with such few appearances I thought it would be an appropriate discussion topic for this forum.  If you don't agree, please let me know and I'll delete the post.

So, I'm looking for numbers/thoughts/projections about these players.  If somebody knows a lot about both players, that would be great, but even if you just know about one I'd appreciate any information.

If you vote in the poll, please backup your selection with reasoning in the comments section.

Disclaimer:  I've been contemplating picking up either Craig Kimbrel or Zach Braddock in my Dynasty League (I don't have a shot at winning this year, so I'm looking for the future), and thought I'd ask everybody's advice here about the players.  I'm not necessarily looking for fantasy advice (I know people hate that around here!) - I just want to learn more about the players.
