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.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen not available

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 04:57:50 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen was not used Wednesday, June 3, against the Colorado Rockies. When asked why Jansen wasn't used, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly repeatedly said he "wasn't available."

Fantasy Tip: It could be Mattingly wanted to save his bullpen, but the important part was the Dodgers blew the game when Jansen could have been used. If you have Jansen in an annual league, the advice is to stay away until this mystery has been solved. It could be just an off night, but there could be more behind the scenes to this.

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.
