  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Targeting July 12 return

    Jansen (chest) expects to be activated from the injured list July 12, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Jansen is not eligible to come off the injured list until the 12th day of July, but he is planning to rejoin Atlanta's bullpen the first day he is able to. According to the report, Jansen "has been doing full workouts," which is certainly encouraging given that he is dealing with an irregular heartbeat.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Team hoping for brief IL stint

    Jansen will still be able to throw bullpen sessions even after landing on the 15-day injured list Tuesday due to an irregular heartbeat, leaving Atlanta optimistic that he'll be ready to return around the minimum amount of time, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Jansen was first diagnosed with the irregular heartbeat in 2011 and missed time that season, as well as during the 2012 and 2018 campaigns after experiencing recurrences of the cardiac issue. When he was most recently sidelined with an irregular heartbeat in 2018, Jansen missed the minimum amount of time when MLB had a 10-day IL in place, and since he'll be able to keep throwing while he's on the shelf, Atlanta is hopeful the 34-year-old has a similarly brief absence this time around. While Jansen is out, Atlanta will likely turn to either A.J. Minter or Will Smith for save situations.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Sidelined with cardiac issue

    Atlanta placed Jansen on the 15-day injured list Tuesday due to an irregular heartbeat.

    The cardiac concerns aren't anything new for Jansen, who was first diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat in 2011. He ended up missing time that season and was also sidelined for periods of time in 2012 and 2018 after suffering recurrences of the irregular heartbeat. After undergoing a heart ablation procedure following the 2018 campaign, Jansen hadn't experienced any setbacks in three-plus years since before heading to the IL on Tuesday. Given Jansen's medical history, he'll likely need to pass a battery of tests from doctors before he's cleared to pitch again for Atlanta, leaving him without a clear timeline to return from the IL. Will Smith, who has scooped up two saves across 32 appearances this season, and A.J. Minter, who has been Atlanta's top reliever in 2022, are presumably first in line to close for Atlanta while Jansen is sidelined, according to David O'Brien of The Athletic.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Blows save against former team

    Jansen allowed two runs on three hits and struck out two in one inning, taking a blown save Sunday versus the Dodgers.

    Jansen converted saves in each of his first two outings against the Dodgers this year, but the third time saw his old team get revenge. Sunday marked just the third time he's allowed multiple runs in an appearance. Jansen is now 20-for-24 in save chances with a 3.58 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 47:8 K:BB through 32.2 innings this year. His other three blown saves all came in the final two weeks of May, but he was able to shake off that slump without it snowballing into something worse. He'll look to do the same going forward.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Halts former team for 20th save

    Jansen picked up the save against the Dodgers on Saturday, striking out all three batters he faced in a perfect ninth inning.

    Jansen pitched for Los Angeles for the first 12 seasons of his major-league career, so he may have had extra motivation to do well Saturday. Whatever the case, the closer looked overpowering in his outing, striking out Cody Bellinger, Max Muncy and Trea Turner on 14 pitches. Jansen has been rock solid in June, posting a 1.80 ERA, 0.70 WHIP and 15:0 K:BB across 10 innings while converting all eight of his save chances and adding one win.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Gets win despite second blown save

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Earns shaky save

    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.

Jansen was then able to recollect himself and strike out Jorge Soler to end the threat.

  • Braves' Kenley Jansen: Blows first save of year

    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.
