Dodgers | Kenley Jansen picks up save

Sun, 17 May 2015 17:57:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen threw a perfect ninth inning in a 1-0 win over the Colorado Rockies to pick up his first save of the season Sunday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: It didn't take long for Jansen to reclaim the closer's role, and he has shown no signs of rust. In two innings of work, he has struck out five batters and hasn't allowed a hit. Expect Jansen to be an elite fantasy closer going forward.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen activated from DL

Fri, 15 May 2015 14:52:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 15. The Dodgers also optioned P Daniel Coulombe to Class AAA Oklahoma City (Okla.).

Fantasy Tip: Jansen has not pitched in 2015 because he has been recovering from a foot injury. He should regain his closer job and should be added to starting lineups in all fantasy leagues.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen could return Friday

Thu, 14 May 2015 16:20:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) could come off the disabled list as early as Friday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: As soon as Jansen is activated off the DL, he should immediately return to all fantasy baseball lineups. Yimi Garcia, who has filled in mainly in the ninth inning in Jansen's absence, should remain owned in all leagues while the Blue eases Jansen back into the full-time closer gig. However, Garcia could provide meaning stats in a setup role for those in deep mixed and NL-only setups in the long run.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen to be eased in

Wed, 13 May 2015 14:35:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) will be eased back into the closer's role, according to manager Don Mattingly. Jansen will have one or two non-pressure situations first.

Fantasy Tip: Yimi Garcia has seen most of the save opportunities in Jansen's absence, and he has the strikeout capabilities to remain useful in deep mixed and NL-only leagues even after Jansen is the full-time closer. Immediately return Jansen to your starting lineups when he comes off the DL this week.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen on verge of return

Tue, 12 May 2015 15:56:35 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) will make his final rehab appearance Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen should almost immediately regain the closer role for the Dodgers. Yimi Garcia blew a save Monday, May 11, opening the door for Jansen to be rushed back into ninth-inning duties. If Jansen hasn't been stashed up to this point, he's a must add.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen to return Saturday

Mon, 11 May 2015 16:03:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) will be activated from the disabled list Saturday, May 16, after he makes a final rehab outing in the minors Wednesday, May 13. However, Jansen won't immediately return to the closing role this weekend after talking with manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: Yimi Garcia has been the main option in save situations for the Blue in Jansen's absence in the early going, and he should remain fantasy-relevant in the short term, since he'll likely continue to see save opportunities while the Dodgers ease Jansen back in. Even when Jansen returns to the role full time, Garcia can be useful in deep mixed and NL-only leagues for his strikeouts.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen to work this weekend

Wed, 06 May 2015 18:35:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) has had his back-to-back rehab test pushed back to Saturday, May 9, and Sunday, May 10, according to manager Don Mattingly. Jansen threw 25 pitches Wednesday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen was roughed up Wednesday, so the team has decided to scratch him from Thursday's scheduled appearance and let him try to go back-to-back over the weekend. That is believed to be his final hurdle before he returns, but he'll need to pitch well, too.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen has rough rehab outing

Wed, 06 May 2015 12:34:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) allowed two hits, a walk, a home run and three runs while striking out two in 25 pitches in a rehab outing Wednesday, May 6. He will make another rehab outing Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen is close to returning to the Dodgers after maybe a few more rehab outings in the minors. The results aren't as important as the health of his foot, and he appears to be fine. Once he's ready, he should immediately return to a closing role for the Blue. Yimi Garcia, who has seen some save opportunities in Jansen's absence could still be a valuable relief asset for his strikeouts in very deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

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.
