Dodgers | Kenley Jansen, Aroldis Chapman could share

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 09:55:07 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers RPs Kenley Jansen and Aroldis Chapman could both close out games for the Dodgers in 2016 based on matchups and how fresh both pitchers are.

Fantasy Tip: It's expected that Chapman will keep his elite status as a fantasy closer as the main option for the Blue in the ninth. However, Jansen may be allowed opportunities here and there in order to keep him happy. Regardless, Jansen will not retain his status as a top-five closing option for fantasy owners next year.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen could be unhappy

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 07:34:30 -0800

Updating earlier reports, Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen wouldn't react well to losing the closer role, according to players that know him.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers agreed to a deal for Aroldis Chapman this morning, and Jansen could be relegated to setup duty. He'd be one of the first non-closers off the board in the middle of drafts.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen notched 36th save

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 07:23:08 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen recorded his 36 save with a scoreless inning pitched during the Dodgers' 2-1 win over the San Diego Padres Saturday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen didn't make his season debut until May 15, so a full season of work would have had him in contention for the league lead in saves. He checks out as a top-tier closer for the 2016 season. Just note, it is rare for closers to remain elite for multiple season.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen gets another save

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 16:27:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen picked up save No. 21 Thursday, Aug. 6, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Jansen has required just 22 opportunities to reach the lofty total.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen has been one of the league's top closers since his return from the disabled list, and season-long owners shouldn't be considering a trade, unless they have an abundance of closers on their roster.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen battling illness

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 18:01:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (illness) has been battling a virus the last four days.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen has allowed one run in his last three appearances, but it sounds like an illness could be to blame. He still has 19 saves in 20 chances, and with 47 strikeouts in 26 2/3 innings, he is one of the elite fantasy closers when healthy.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen gets save No. 17

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 17:17:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen picked up his 17th save of the season Wednesday, July 22, against the Atlanta Braves. Jansen has failed to convert only one save opportunity on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen has an ERA of 2.38 but an xFIP of 1.12. Even with a K/9 of 16.28 on the season, owners may want to try to "buy low."

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen takes the loss

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:07:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen allowed a sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth inning to the New York Mets and was charged with the loss Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners shouldn't panic, but it is the third consecutive game Jansen allowed an earned run, especially because he only allowed a single earned run over his previous 15 appearances. Still, Jansen is an elite closer who boasts a 1.93 ERA, 1.21 FIP, 0.59 WHIP and 15.4 K/9. He'll have a long leash on the ninth inning.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen's heart fine

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 08:58:23 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (illness) underwent tests Wednesday, June 3, including an electrocardiogram, to rule out the recurrence of an irregular heartbeat known as atrial fibrillation that affected him three years ago. Jansen told the trainers he was suffering from an upset stomach and headache in the morning, and he was given intravenous fluids. The tests found that his heart was in normal rhythm. He was cleared to pitch Thursday, June 4, but he didn't make an appearance.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Jansen is in the clear... for now. Keep a close eye on him, especially how he bounces back in his next outing. If you own him, have Yimi Garcia close by in case Jansen relapses.
