Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Notches 15th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen pitched the ninth inning, allowing two hits and earning the save in the 5-3 win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Jansen inherited runners on the corners with no outs in the bottom of the ninth with a three-run lead. It was not the smoothest outing for him, as he allowed a single to the first two batters he faced. He then retired the next three batters in order while the bases were loaded to end the game. Jansen is 15-for-17 in save opportunities with a 1.69 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP in 26.2 innings.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Records four-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen allowed a walk and struck out one over 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the save in Wednesday's 2-1 win over Pittsburgh.

Jansen got the last out of the eighth inning and then worked the ninth for his second save in as many days. The 33-year-old ended the game with quick reaction time, snaring Ke'Bryan Hayes' line drive back to the mound. Jansen has a 1.75 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 30:19 K:BB across 25.2 innings this season. He is now 14-for-16 in save chances. After Wednesday's game, manager Dave Roberts said Jansen would not be available to pitch Thursday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. That could put Victor Gonzalez or Jimmy Nelson in line for a save chance should one arise.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Nails down 13th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen picked up a one-out scoreless save that included a strikeout against the Pirates on Tuesday.

After Nate Jones started to cough up a 5-1 deficit in the ninth by serving up a pair of home runs, Jansen was called upon to halt the Pirates' rally. He did so without a fight, sending his only batter down on strikes. The veteran right-hander has been solid this season, pitching to the tune of a 1.85 ERA and 1.03 WHIP while going 11-for-13 in save chances.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Surrenders three in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen (0-2) lost Friday's 8-5 game with the Giants, allowing three runs (two earned) on two hits and a walk with a strikeout in 0.2 innings.

Jansen was brought in for the 10th inning but allowed inherited runner Steven Duggar to score before giving up an Evan Longoria two-RBI double. He was then removed with two outs. The blowup outing was Jansen's first of the campaign, as he had allowed only three runs on the season prior to Friday. He remains a quality closer option.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Records 12th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen saved Thursday's 4-3 win over San Francisco, pitching a clean ninth with no baserunners and two strikeouts.

Jansen struck out the first wo Giants he faced and induced an Evan Longoria flyout to lock down his 12th save, placing him among the league leaders. It was Jansen's seventh straight appearance with a save as Los Angeles has won 13 of its last 15 games.

May 23, 2021 12:08 AM
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Notches 11th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen pitched a perfect ninth inning while striking out one to record the save in the win over the Giants on Saturday.

Jansen entered with a three-run lead and retired the side to record his 11th save, tying for third-best in all of baseball. The 33-year-old blew two saves earlier this year, but he has six straight saves in his last six appearances. He has a 1.31 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP with a 10.5 K/9 in 20.2 innings.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Could be unavailable until Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Jansen may not be available Friday and Saturday in San Francisco after pitching in three of the past four games, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

The 33-year-old covered 3.1 innings on 46 pitches while picking up three saves during the four-game set versus the Diamondbacks this week, so Roberts wants to give his veteran closer a bit of a breather. Jansen shouldn't be expected to pitch Friday against the Giants, while his status for Saturday figures to be more up in the air. Blake Treinen has one save, 11 holds and a 2.00 ERA across 18 innings this season and is the likely candidate to cover the ninth inning in the meantime for Los Angeles.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Third save in four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen recorded his 10th save in Thursday's 3-2 win over Arizona, pitching a clean ninth with two strikeouts.

Jansen made quick work of Josh Reddick, David Peralta and Nick Ahmed to torment the Diamondbacks with yet another save, his third of the four-game series. After blowing a save May 5, Jansen has rebounded in the six outings since with scoreless appearances and five saves while allowing only four baserunners with 10 strikeouts. His last earned run was in a game April 26 against the Reds.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Locks down Snakes for ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen struck out a pair of batters in a 1-2-3 ninth inning en route to earning his ninth save of the season Wednesday in the Dodgers' 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Joe Kelly, Victor Gonzalez and Jansen put the clamps on Arizona after starter Clayton Kershaw exited following the sixth inning. The relievers allowed only one of the 10 batters they faced to reach base, guiding Los Angeles to its seventh win in eight games in the process. With four consecutive stress-free saves under his belt, Jansen looks to have settled in nicely after a somewhat rocky start to the season. The save he notched Wednesday was the 321st of his career, tying Jansen with Jose Mesa for 20th in MLB history.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Earns another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen recorded his eighth save of the season Monday against the Diamondbacks. He allowed one hit and one walk with no strikeouts across 1.1 innings.

Jansen entered the game to record the final out of the eighth inning following a groundout of Domingo Leyba, and while things got complicated in the ninth when he had runners on first and second with one out, he closed things out with a double play. Jansen has gone 8-for-10 in save opportunities this season.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Locks down seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen pitched a perfect ninth with two strikeouts to save Friday's 9-6 win against the Marlins.

Jansen retired all three Marlins he faced in securing an easy save for Los Angeles. He now has seven saves and a 1.65 ERA on the season and remains among the game's top closers. Jansen hasn't allowed an earned run in his last six appearances.

May 12, 2021 03:24 AM
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Cruises to sixth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen picked up the save against the Mariners on Tuesday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning and collecting two strikeouts.

Jansen made quick work of Seattle while protecting a two-run lead, needing 14 pitches to set down the side in order. The veteran closer has struggled with his control at times this season, walking 14 batters over 15.1 innings. However, he has converted six of eight save opportunities and pitched to a 1.76 ERA while once again averaging over a strikeout per inning. His velocity has hovered around 93 mph, up a few ticks from his marks over the previous three campaigns.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Charged with blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen allowed one run (none earned) on three walks across one inning to blow the save Wednesday against the Cubs.

Jansen entered the game in the 10th inning with a one-run lead. Though he had to deal with the runner starting at second base, Jansen didn't help himself by walking the leadoff hitter and then throwing a wild pitch. The rest of his line looks worse than reality, as the other two walks were intentional. Even so, Jansen has struggled with his control this season, as he now has 13 walks across 13.1 innings of work.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Charged with loss Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen (0-1) suffered his first loss of the season Monday against the Reds after serving up a two-run homer in the 10th inning. He also walked and struck out a batter in the outing.

Jansen entered the game to begin the 10th and was unable to keep the Reds off the scoreboard. He surrendered a two-run homer to Jesse Winker on the second pitch of the inning, and the Dodgers were unable to mount a comeback in the bottom half of the frame. The 33-year-old now owns a 2.61 ERA over 10.1 innings on the year and may not be available to pitch for a day or two after needing 24 pitches to get three outs Monday.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Post four-out save Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen earned the save against the Padres on Saturday, throwing 1.1 scoreless innings and yielding one walk while striking out two.

Jansen has now been used for more than one frame in three of his eight appearances this season. He's thrived in the early going, successfully finishing five of six save opportunities while registering a 1.93 ERA and 12:7 K:BB across 9.1 innings. The veteran closer's velocity has ticked up a touch this season, and he appears to still have plenty left in the tank in his 12th MLB campaign.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Notches fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen earned the save Tuesday against the Mariners, striking out two in a perfect ninth inning.

The veteran right-hander made quick work of the top of Seattle's lineup, retiring the side in order while delivering eight of 10 pitches for strikes. Jansen is 4-for-5 in save chances and has allowed two runs on two hits with a 10:6 K:BB through eight innings this season.

April 17, 2021 06:20 PM
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Unavailable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Jansen is unavailable to pitch Saturday at San Diego, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The 33-year-old threw 26 pitches and allowed one run on one hit and one walk with two strikeouts over 1.1 innings Friday in a non-save situation, so he won't be available for Saturday's contest. Corey Knebel has two saves and three holds through seven appearances this season and is the likely option to fill in for Jansen as the closer.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Secures third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen earned the save against Colorado on Wednesday, hurling a scoreless inning and allowing one walk while striking out three.

Jansen was called upon in the ninth inning to protect a two-run lead. The veteran closer began his outing by walking Dom Nunez, but he took control from there, striking out each of the subsequent three batters. Following a blown save against Oakland on April 7, Jansen has bounced back with saves in each of his following two appearances. He hasn't allowed a run or a hit while registering a 5:1 K:BB over two innings during that span.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Bounces back with clean save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen earned his second save of the season in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Nationals, as he recorded two strikeouts in an easy 1-2-3 frame.

Jansen was able to notch his second save of the season, and his first since April 3, as he returned to dominant form while only needing eight pitches to get through the inning. Jansen was involved in a blown save earlier in the week and then was passed up for a save opportunity in favor of Corey Knebel on Friday, which may have had fantasy managers shaking in their boots. He reassured his closer status Sunday and appeared to turn back the clock a bit while touching 94 MPH with his cutter and reaching 95 MPH with his sinker. The Dodgers have a day off Monday, which means Jansen should be available if needed when the team returns Tuesday in a home series against the Rockies.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Will have workload monitored
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen did not receive the save opportunity Friday in the Dodgers' home opener versus Washington because he had pitched twice in the previous three days, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Corey Knebel was summoned in the ninth inning Friday with the Dodgers holding onto a one-run lead. That opportunity would typically go to Jansen, but manager Dave Roberts made it clear that the veteran closer wasn't passed over for performance reasons, explaining "He's [Jansen's] in the same bucket as all our pitchers, as far as workload." Though Knebel converted the save and Jansen has been shaky so far this season, it's probably premature to to expect a change in the ninth-inning role. However, it seems likely that Jansen won't be taxed early in the campaign, potentially opening save opportunities for Knebel, Blake Treinen and Victor Gonzalez.
