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.

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.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen healthy and available

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 16:40:07 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (illness) was cleared to play Thursday, June 4, after suffering from high blood pressure and an upset stomach Wednesday, June 3, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen owners can breathe a sigh of relief that it wasn't related to a heart condition that he suffered from several years ago or something more serious. However, it's still worth watching how he bounces back in his next appearance. Have Yimi Garcia close by if Jansen suffers a setback of some sort.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen being evaluated

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 09:32:23 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (undisclosed) will be checked out Thursday, June 4, after not being available due to undisclosed reasons Wednesday, June 3, according to sources. Jansen wasn't feeling well, but he may just have been dealing with dehydration in the altitude in Colorado.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen's issues aren't believed to be related to a heart condition that he dealt with several years ago, which is good news for his owners. However, keep an eye on the situation. If Jansen is forced to miss any more time, Yimi Garcia, who was hit with the loss last night, figures to be first in line for save chances again. Keep him close by if you're in need of saves or own Jansen, just in case.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen could pitch Thursday

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 07:40:37 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (undisclosed) could pitch Thursday, June 4, according to a team source. The source also indicated that whatever ailment Jansen is dealing with is not serious. Jansen experienced an irregular heartbeat known as atrial fibrillation in Denver in 2012 and underwent an ablation procedure the following October. He has not had any further incidents that have been made public.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen returns home to face the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday. It's possible that Jansen is unable to pitch in the thin Colorado air, much like former NFL free safety Ryan Clark was unable to play in Denver because of a sickle-cell ailment. Yimi Garcia should be handcuffed to Jansen if possible as a precaution.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen issue cloudy

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 06:25:42 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen's (illness) apparent illness led manager Don Mattingly to be evasive when answering questions after the game. The Dodgers declined to comment when asked if Jansen's apparent illness was related to a previous heart condition. Going deeper, ESPN analyst and former major-league pitcher Rick Sutcliffe posted on Twitter a message that he was "sending my prayers" to the Dodgers and Jansen. Sutcliffe was part of the broadcast team for the game Wednesday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: It's difficult to speculate, but Jansen was with the team and not receiving medical treatment. One would think if Jansen were suffering from symptoms of his previous heart condition he would have been at the hospital. Either way, Yimi Garcia needs to be handcuffed to Jansen in as many leagues as possible.

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 05:59:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (illness) was unavailable Wednesday, June 3, because he wasn't feeling well.

Fantasy Tip: He figures to be day to day. Yimi Garcia is a solid piece of insurance to own if you have Jansen.
