Dodgers | Kenley Jansen gets rest day

Tue, 05 May 2015 20:15:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) was given the day off Tuesday, May 5. He is scheduled to throw back-to-back minor-league rehab games for Class A Rancho Cucamonga Wednesday, May 6, and Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen is rounding the third and heading home in his rehab, although he will not be used to close games immediately upon his return. Fantasy owners need to keep being patient, although he is worth scooping up in all standard fantasy leagues if still on the waiver wire.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen won't close right away?

Fri, 01 May 2015 18:33:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) will resume his closing duties at some point, but he might not close immediately upon his return from injury, manager Dan Mattingly said Friday May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Although Jansen may have to wait a bit to close games, he is still worth owning in all fantasy formats. He will start logging saves again eventually, and in the meantime, his strikeout potential makes him worth keeping inserting in your lineup when he returns.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen faces hitters

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 15:25:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) faced hitters and had no issues with his foot Tuesday, April 28. He will head on a minor league rehab assignment next.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen could return to the Dodgers as early as this weekend. Yimi Garcia continues to have short-term value in all leagues as the temporary closer with both Jansen and Joel Peralta on the DL. Jansen is expected to immediately return to the ninth-inning role when he's ready.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen to throw bullpen

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:52:54 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) said he will throw a bullpen session Saturday, April 25, and then throw a simulated game Tuesday, April 28. He'll go on a minor league rehab assignment after that if he doesn't have any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen will immediately return to the Dodgers' closing role when fully healthy, especially after the Dodgers' bullpen imploded Thursday. Until Jansen's return, Joel Peralta is the Blue reliever to own in all formats for his short-term window for save opportunities.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen will test foot Saturday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:00:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) will test his foot by throwing off a mound Saturday, April 18. It will be the first time he has thrown off a mound since his mid-February foot surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Until otherwise reported, Jansen projects to return in mid-May, and he should be stashed in all formats. Jansen will close when he returns. Joel Peralta and Chris Hatcher should see the majority of save opportunities until Jansen returns. However, Peralta is currently dealing with a neck injury, so it may be Hatcher's role alone in the short term.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen targeting mid-May

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 11:10:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) is targeting mid-May to return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Hatcher and Joel Peralta will likely remain in line for save chances in the interim. The problem for fantasy owners is the new front office doesn't value closers as highly as most teams have the last 25 years. The team could mix and match on a daily basis until Jansen returns.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen pain-free

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 15:42:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) said he is pain-free and might throw a bullpen session in two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen expects to be ready to return in mid-May. Until then, the Dodgers may use a committee approach, although Chris Hatcher had the first save chance and converted on opening day. Run to the waiver wire and add Hatcher immediately. Although he might not receive every chance, he has the skills to get the job done and is more intriguing to fantasy owners than Joel Peralta.

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) was off crutches Tuesday, March 17, and he was scheduled to play catch. He has been throwing with his knee on a chair.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen receives positive news

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 15:06:26 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Jansen has a career 14.0 K/9 mark and 97 saves over the past thee seasons, so he'll be a worthy stash candidate in all leagues. He is a viable selection among the middle tiers of closers on draft day. Currently, the closing duties are up in the air, so check back for updates on both Jansen's recovery timetable and who will fill in for him.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen to be on crutches

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 08:59:21 -0800

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) will be on crutches for about 10 days and in a protective boot for another three to four weeks after having a growth removed from one of the bones in his foot. The Dodgers have no obvious replacement at closer for Jansen, with RP Brandon League maybe being the likeliest candidate because of his 74 career saves. RP J.P. Howell has 21 career saves, and RP Joel Peralta could also be an option.

Fantasy Tip: Jensen, in a best-case scenario, will probably be ready in early May. That means the Dodgers have to fill the closer situation for a month without him. Based on Peralta's numbers with the Tampa Bay Rays the past several seasons, he seems like the best bet to handle most of the opportunities if the Dodgers don't go outside the organization for help. If you're a Jansen owner, the best course of action would be to pick up Peralta or Howell and sit on Jansen for the first month.
