Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Strikes out side for save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen earned his 24th save of the season by striking out the side in a perfect ninth inning to close out Friday's 2-1 win over the Marlins.

Jansen needed 15 pitches to whiff Harold Ramirez, Jorge Alfaro and pinch hitter Neil Walker for the save. It was his first appearance since he took the loss Tuesday versus the Phillies while trying to pitch through an injured right ankle. Jansen has had his ups and downs with a 3.63 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in 39.2 innings this season, having taken four blown saves.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Likely available Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Jansen's injured right ankle is "significantly better," David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports. Jansen is expected to be available out of the Los Angeles bullpen for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

Jansen bruised his ankle en route to blowing a save in disastrous fashion Tuesday, as he served up three runs on four hits while recording just one out in the losing effort. After getting Wednesday off to recover, Jansen has apparently healed as anticipated and should slot back in as closer for the Dodgers if a save situation arises in the series finale.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Not available Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Jansen (ankle) will not be available Wednesday against the Phillies, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Jansen suffered a bruised right ankle after being hit by a comebacker Tuesday. While the closer said his ankle is feeling better, he's still dealing with some swelling and will miss at least one game as a result. Look for Joe Kelly or Julio Urias to get the ball should a save opportunity arise in Jansen's absence.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Suffers bruised ankle in blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen has a bruised right ankle after being hit by a comebacker in Tuesday's game at Philadelphia, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports. He was charged with the blown save after giving up four hits and three runs while recording only one out during the ninth inning.

Jansen never exited the game but sported a heavy limp in the clubhouse, and he said that it was a mistake to stay in the game since he had trouble pushing off the mound, according to Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register. The severity of the injury is not fully clear, but the Dodgers seem likely to avoid utilizing the 31-year-old for a day or two, at least.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Fans three in non-save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen worked 1.2 scoreless innings against the Red Sox on Sunday, walking one batter and striking out three.

With the game tied 4-4 and the winning run on second base with one out for Boston in the ninth inning, the Dodgers turned to Jansen, who retired the final two batters to end the threat and send the game into extra innings. He returned to pitch the 10th and worked around a one-out walk to record an additional three outs in a game the Dodgers would go on to win in the 12th inning. Jansen has once again been one of the most reliable closers in baseball this season, converting 23 of 26 save opportunities while posting a 3.05 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 51:8 K:BB in 38.1 innings.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Records 23rd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen posted his 23rd save of the season, striking out one and allowing one hit during the ninth inning of a 3-2 victory against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

The veteran closer had to work to earn this save, as he threw 27 pitches, but Jansen has now saved 11 of his last 12 opportunities. During that stretch, he owns a 1.65 ERA. Jansen has registered 23 saves with a 3.21 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 33.2 innings this season.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Picks up third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen (3-2) pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the win against Colorado on Sunday, allowing one hit and striking out two.

For the second straight game, Jansen entered in a non-save situation and held the Rockies scoreless. He picked up the win Sunday when Will Smith hit a walkoff three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning. Through 32.2 innings this season, Jansen has posted a 3.31 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 44:7 K:BB while racking up 22 saves.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Sweats out 22nd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen earned a save against the Giants on Thursday, completing one inning and giving up one run on two hits and one walk.

Jansen was certainly expecting a night off after the Dodgers entered the ninth inning with a 9-4 lead, but a string of three consecutive San Francisco baserunners to lead off the inning netted two runs and resulted in Jansen being called upon to close out the victory. He responded by allowing an additional three straight hitters to reach base on a pair of singles and a walk, but managed to squeeze out the save by the skin of his teeth by inducing an incredibly close out at third base that was deemed inconclusive by replay officials followed by a pair of deep flyouts. Despite a 3.52 ERA this season, Jansen ranks second in the majors with 22 saves and is on pace to surpass the 40-save mark for the fourth time in his career.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Resting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen won't be available to pitch Monday against the Giants, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Jansen has pitched each of the last three days, so the Dodgers have elected to give him Monday off to rest. Pedro Baez or Julio Uras may get an opportunity in a save situation should one arise, per Gurnick.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Notches 21st save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen worked a scoreless ninth inning to earn a save against the Cubs on Sunday, allowing a hit and a walk.

One day after blowing his third save of the season, Jansen this time closed out the Cubs to earn his 21st save. It was hardly an easy outing, however, as he opened the inning by allowing a single and a walk before a pair of groundouts and a tough diving catch by Alex Verdugo sealed the win. Jansen now ranks second in the majors in saves despite a 3.34 ERA that would be the highest of his career.

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

Jansen (2-2) took the loss and blew his third save of the season in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Cubs, giving up two runs on one hit in the ninth inning while striking out two.

After hitting Kris Bryant with his first pitch, Jansen then threw a 2-0 cutter to Anthony Rizzo that wound up in the right-field bleachers. The Dodgers closer had converted eight straight save chances prior to Saturday and hadn't allowed a run in over a month, so chalk this one up to just one of those nights. Jansen still boasts a 3.45 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 42:5 K:BB through 28.2 innings on the year.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Earns 20th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen struck out the side in the ninth inning of Friday's 5-3 win over the Cubs for his 20th save of the season.

He hadn't pitched in five days prior to this contest. Jansen has gone 20-for-22 in save chances this season. The 31-year-old has a 2.93 ERA and 0.83 WHIP with a 40:5 K:BB in 27.2 innings this season.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Records 18th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen allowed one hit in a scoreless inning to record his 18th save in a 3-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Jansen quickly retired the first two hitters before giving up a double to Eduardo Escobar. He quickly rebounded, getting David Peralta to pop up to nail down his 18th save. The right-hander has been on a roll, as he extended his scoreless streak to eight games. Jansen has six saves with a 0.00 ERA and a 11:1 K:BB over those last eight appearances.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Finishes off Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen recorded the last out via strikeout in Friday's 6-3 win over the Phillies, earning his 17th save of the season.

Jansen came into the game after Scott Kingery's two-out RBI single, and retired Andrew Knapp on four pitches. Jansen has been shaky at times this year with a 3.28 ERA and 0.89 WHIP over 24.2 innings. The 31-year-old has converted 17 of 19 save chances this season.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Collects 16th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen picked up the save in a victory over the Mets on Thursday, getting the last four outs of the game (two by strikeout) and allowing only one baserunner on a controversial hit-by-pitch call.

Jansen was called upon to protect a one-run lead with a runner on base and two outs in the eighth inning and promptly struck out pinch hitter Dominic Smith to end the threat. After the Dodgers added an insurance run in the bottom half of the inning, Jansen retired three of the final four batters to close out the game in spite of the questionable hit-by-pitch call that put the tying run on base. After a string of April appearances in which Jansen gave up an earned run in five of seven appearances, he has now held opponents scoreless in nine of his last 10 outings to lower his season ERA to 3.33. He ranks second in the National League with 16 saves.

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

Jansen picked up the save in the Dodgers' 9-5 victory over the Mets on Monday, giving up one hit over 1.2 scoreless innings. He struck out three and walked none.

Jansen picked up his first five-out save since July 4 of last year, striking out three of the five batters he faced to record his 15th successfully converted opportunity of the season. He hasn't given up a run since a four-run blowup against the Padres on May 5, lowering his ERA to 3.52 and his WHIP to 0.96 to go along with a 32:5 K:BB over 23 innings.

May 16, 2019 06:24 AM
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Nails down 14th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen gave up a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning while striking out two to record his 14th save of the season in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Padres.

A walkoff grand slam by Hunter Renfroe is the only blemish on Jansen's ledger so far in May, but that's been the story of his season so far. Seven of the nine runs he's allowed in 2019 have come via the long ball, leading to a career-worst 3.98 ERA, but his 28:5 K:BB through 20.1 innings remains strong, and the NL-leading Dodgers have provided him with no shortage of save opportunities.

May 15, 2019 06:16 PM
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Nabs 13th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen picked up the save against the Padres on Tuesday, working around one hit to fire a scoreless ninth inning in a 6-3 victory for the Dodgers. He struck out one and walked none.

Jansen picked up his first save since May 4 with this scoreless effort for his 13th of the season in 15 opportunities. His 4.19 ERA is uncharacteristically high, but that's mainly due to a four-run blowup against San Diego on May 5. He still boasts a 0.98 WHIP and 26:4 K:BB through 19.1 innings, and his ERA is likely to correct back toward his career mark of 2.27 as he logs more innings.

May 6, 2019 07:20 PM
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Unavailable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen won't pitch Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The closer has worked three straight days, so the Dodgers will give him a day off for this Monday matchup with the Braves, per Gurnick. Pedro Baez or Scott Alexander are possible candidates who could get the nod to close it out if a save situation arises.

May 6, 2019 12:36 AM
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Blows second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jansen (2-1) took a blown save and the loss against the Padres on Sunday, recording two outs in the ninth inning while giving up four hits and four earned runs in the Dodgers' 8-5 defeat. He struck out one and walked none.

It was an outing to forget for the right-hander, as he relinquished a 5-4 lead in the ninth inning after loading the bases and serving up a walkoff grand slam to Hunter Renfroe to saddle him with his second blown save in 14 chances. The rough performance bloated the 31-year-old's ERA from 2.70 to 4.67 through 17.1 innings.
