  • Jansen gave up a hit and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his 11th save of the season in a 6-4 win over the Marlins. After getting tagged for at least one earned run in three straight appearances and blowing his first two saves of the season, Jansen appeared to be back in his usual form Friday. Through 19.2 innings on the year, he sports a 3.66 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 27:6 K:BB, and as things stand there's no reason to think his grasp on the closer's role is slipping.

  • Jansen (3-0) picked up the win despite blowing his second save of the season Tuesday, giving up two runs on a hit and a walk in an inning of relief in a 6-5 victory over the Phillies. Entrusted with a 4-3 lead in the top of the ninth inning, Jansen served up a two-run homer to Bryce Harper but then got bailed out when Atlanta scored twice in the bottom of the frame. The veteran closer has given up runs in three straight appearances, sending his ERA soaring to 3.86 on the year, but his 0.86 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB through 18.2 innings remain sharp.

  • Jansen picked up the save against the Marlins on Friday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out three across one inning. Jansen was summoned in the ninth inning with Atlanta holding a two-run lead, and he struck out the first two batters he faced. Things turned sour quickly for the veteran, however, as a walk, a single and a double netted one run for Miami and put the tying run on third base. Jansen was then able to recollect himself and strike out Jorge Soler to end the threat. Though Jansen has allowed runs in his past two outings, he has been one of the NL's top closers overall this season, converting 10 of 11 save opportunities and posting a 25:5 K:BB over 17.2 innings.

  • Jansen gave up a run on a hit and a walk in one inning of relief to blow his first save chance of the season in Wednesday's 7-6 extra-innings loss to the Brewers. The veteran closer entered the game in the ninth inning with Atlanta holding a 4-3 lead, but an RBI triple by Kolten Wong sent the game to extras. Jansen was tagged for a run for only the second time in his last 15 appearances, but fatigue may have been a factor -- he's pitched on two straight days and four of the last five, though Atlanta does have a scheduled off day Thursday. On the season, Jansen sports a 2.70 ERA and 22:4 K:BB through 16.2 innings.

  • Jansen saved Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Brewers, striking out two in a 1-2-3 ninth inning. Jansen was called upon to pitch the ninth inning of a three-run game and nailed down the win for his first save since May 7. The 34-year-old has now recorded multiple strikeouts in four of his last five appearances and his 12.6 K/9 would be Jansen's highest mark since his standout 2017 campaign.
