Sun, 24 Apr 2016 05:43:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen did not allow a base runner and notched a strikeout to record his eighth save of the season during the Dodgers' 4-1 win over the Colorado Rockies Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: This is just a friendly reminder that Jansen is an elite closer. His eight saves pace the league, and he has allowed just three base runners all season for a 0.00 ERA, a 0.35 WHIP and he has struck out nine batters through 8 2/3 innings.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen available for longer saves?

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 16:29:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen could be used for longer save chances. Manager Dave Roberts said he's not ready to change setup roles in the bullpen, but he will consider extending Jansen.

Fantasy Tip: This would be good news for Jansen owners, but it also could result in a heavier workload and a tired arm by the end of the season. In any event, it won't really change the value of Jansen as an already elite fantasy closer.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen not in line for new deal

Sat, 20 Feb 2016 09:11:22 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen said he has not had any talks with the Dodgers about a multi-year contract. Jansen will be eligible for free agency next offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen should be the team's closer this season even if he does not receive a new deal. He finished with 36 saves last season, which ranked seventh in the league in that category. Jansen should have plenty of save opportunities this season and could be one of the first closers selected in drafts.

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.
