Dodgers | Kenley Jansen held out

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (heart) was held out Tuesday, Aug. 28, and Wednesday, Aug. 29, because of his ongoing heart condition. He spent time on the disabled list earlier this year with an irregular heartbeat. If Jansen is experiencing hemorrhaging, he could be lost for the rest of the season. RP Ronald Belisario was used to close out the game Wednesday, earning his first save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen owners need to keep a close eye on this development, but in the meantime, Jansen owner or not, saves chasers need to be proactive and grab either Belisario or Brandon League.

Belisario has been solid this month (14 K's in 11 1/3 frames, two earned runs), so perhaps that's why he was given the nod in Wednesday's save chance over League. However, League is probably the better bet if Jansen has to miss the final month of the season.
