  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Records five outs for win

    Jansen (2-0) picked up the win Saturday against San Diego, striking out two batters across 1.2 scoreless, hitless innings.

    Jansen hasn't recorded a save since last Saturday but has now chipped in with two wins this week. He was called on with one out in a tie game in the top of the eighth inning and allowed all three of his inherited runners to score, but his teammates would rally back for four runs of their own in the bottom of the frame. He then retired the side in order in the top of the ninth to seal the deal. The outing marked the first time Jansen recorded more than three outs in an appearance this season.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Earns win after scoreless ninth

    Jansen (1-0) earned the win after not allowing a hit across a scoreless ninth inning during Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Red Sox. He struck out two and walked one.

    Jansen came on for the top of the ninth inning with the score tied 3-3 and kept it that way with another strong outing. The closer was then credited for his first win of the season after Orlando Arcia blasted a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth. Jansen is a perfect 8-for-8 in save attempts and sports a 17:3 K:BB.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Collects shaky save Saturday

    Jansen allowed one run on two hits over one inning Saturday to earn the save against the Brewers. He struck out two.

    Jansen was handed a two-run ninth-inning lead and immediately found himself in danger when Christian Yelich led off the frame with a double. A Tyrone Taylor one-out single yielded a run, but Jansen was able to close the door without further damage. The veteran closer came into the contest with nine straight scoreless outings and has converted all eight of his save chances this season.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Notches seventh save

    Jansen gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Monday to record his seventh save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Mets.

    The right-hander has reeled off nine straight scoreless appearances after a shaky outing in his first game with Atlanta, and Jansen has converted all seven of his save chances so far for his new team. The hot streak has left him with a 2.70 ERA, 0.60 WHIP and 13:2 K:BB through his first 10 innings on the year.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Racks up sixth save

    Jansen struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his sixth save of the season in a 6-3 win over the Rangers.

    The long-time Dodgers closer hasn't missed a beat since signing with Atlanta in the offseason. Jansen is a perfect 6-for-6 in save chances to begin the year with a 37.5 percent strikeout rate that would be his highest mark since 2017 if he can keep it up.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Collects fifth save

    Jansen struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his fifth save of the season in a 3-1 win over the Cubs.

    The veteran closer had a shaky first appearance for Atlanta, but since then Jansen has delivered six straight scoreless outings with a 9:0 K:BB and five straight save conversions. The 34-year-old's 3.86 ERA looks out of place next to his 0.71 WHIP, 38.5 percent strikeout rate and 1.08 FIP.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Nails down fourth save

    Jansen walked one and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his fourth save of the season in a 3-0 win over the Marlins.

    The former Dodger had a shaky first appearance with Atlanta, but since then Jansen has looked like his usual lock-down self, reeling off five straight scoreless appearances with a 7:1 K:BB while converting all four of his save chances. The 34-year-old has topped 30 saves in seven straight full campaigns, and he seems well on his way to ringing up an eighth.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Bests former team

    Jansen saved Tuesday's 3-1 win against the Dodgers, pitching a 1-2-3 ninth with one strikeout.

    Make it three straight appearances with a save for the 34-year-old Jansen, who locked down the win on 12 pitches while facing an intimidating trio of Will Smith, Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman. Jansen has thrown four perfect innings with five strikeouts since surrendering three runs in his first appearance of the season.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Notches second save

    Jansen struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Saturday to record his second save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Padres.

    The veteran closer saw little use through the first week of the season, but Jensen is now 2-for-2 on save chances with Atlanta over the last two days. Will Smith worked the eighth inning Saturday and Collin McHugh the seventh, so if the team has another late lead to protect Sunday, it's not clear who manager Brian Snitker might turn to.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Earns first save of season

    Jansen recorded his first save of the season Friday against the Padres after tossing a scoreless inning with two strikeouts.

    The veteran hurler endured a shaky debut with the Braves when he gave up three runs on three hits and a walk (with one strikeout) across one inning against the Reds on April 8, but he has bounced back and posted back-to-back scoreless outings since then. He's not going to be the dominant closer he was during his prime years with the Dodgers, but his job security is among the highest in the league.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Shaky in Atlanta debut

    Jansen gave up three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one in one inning of relief during Friday's 7-6 win over the Reds.

    Manager Brian Snitker elected to let his new closer make his debut for Atlanta in a non-save situation and the move nearly backfired, as Jansen almost squandered a 7-3 lead before finally getting Jonathan India to fly out with the tying run at first base. Jansen ended up throwing 30 pitches, so expect someone else to get a save chance Saturday if needed.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Makes spring debut for Atlanta

    Jansen allowed an unearned run on a hit and a walk over one inning in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.

    Entering the game in the fifth inning, Jansen got two outs on two pitches before issuing a walk and then watching Eddie Rosario fumble around with a Christian Arroyo single to right field, which allowed the runner to score from first base. It was Jansen's first game action since signing with Atlanta, and the veteran closer should be ready to go at the back of the bullpen by Opening Day.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Signs with Atlanta

    Jansen signed a one-year, $16 million contract with Atlanta on Friday.

    This is a big wave in the reliever landscape, as it likely means Jansen will displace Will Smith as the closer and and it leaves Blake Treinen as the Dodgers' potential top source of saves. Jansen, 34, logged a 2.22 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 86 strikeouts in 69 innings last season. He has 350 career saves.
