      Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Agrees to one-year deal to avoid arbitration

      Jansen settled on a one-year deal with the Dodgers on Friday that will net him $10.65 million in 2016, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. Jansen's 2015 campaign started a bit late due to an injury, but he returned to form to finish the season with a 2.41 ERA and 0.78 WHIP with 80 strikeouts over 52.1 innings, notching 36 saves. He'll earn a cool $10.65 million in his last year of arbitration, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Dodgers attempt to extend his contract before the season ends.

      Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen protects one-run lead, gets 36th save

      Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen hit a batter and allowed a hit in a scoreless ninth inning while striking out one en route to his 36th save in a 2-1 win over the Padres on Saturday. Jansen has had a ridiculous season for the Dodgers and he's the only reliable arm in their bullpen right now. The perfect scenario played itself out on Saturday, as Zack Greinke went eight strong innings and was able to hand the game to Jansen in the ninth. Jansen now holds a 2.41 ERA and 0,78 WHIP in 52 1/3 innings this season while striking out 80 batters.

      Lights-out Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen turns lights out on Arizona

      Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen struck out one batter across a perfect ninth inning Thursday en route to his 34th save in a 6-3 win over the Diamondbacks. Jansen has been fantastic this season and might be the best closer in the league right now. Not only does he hold a minuscule 0.77 WHIP, he also has 78 strikeouts in just 49 1/3 innings. With how rocky the rest of the Dodgers bullpen has been, they might need to rely on their starters going deep into games once the playoffs begin and hand the ball to Jansen in the ninth to have success.

      Dodgers pitcher Kenley Jansen notches save Wednesday

      Dodgers pitcher Kenley Jansen secured his 33rd save Wednesday, allowing one hit over a scoreless inning en route to a 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks. Jansen allowed an infield single to Ender Inciarte to begin his frame, but retired the next three hitters to quash the potential rally. The Dodgers closer hasn't recorded any strikeouts over his last two outings, but fantasy owners can hardly complain; Jansen boasts a 14.54 K/9 on the season.

      Dodgers closer Kenley Jensen logs 32nd save Wednesday

      Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen struck out two batters and allowed one hit en route to his 32nd save in a 2-0 win over the Rockies on Wednesday. Jansen had allowed three runs in his previous outing in a non-save situation and a bounce-back seemed inevitable for the elite closer. What's really impressive about Jansen is that he has 77 strikeouts in 46 2/3 innings this season, while walking just eight batters. His 0.77 WHIP and absurd strikeout total make him one of the most valuable closers in Fantasy.
