Dodgers Look to Kenley Jansen to Maintain Form Heading Into All Star Break

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Kenley Jansen has Been Quietly Dominant

Is 2015 the year Kenley Jansen finally gets an all-star nod? – Mandatory Credit: Gary A. Vasquez/US Presswire The conversation for “best closer in baseball” in recent years has been monopolized by stars like Craig Kimbrel, Aroldis Chapman, Greg Holland, and career save king Mariano Rivera. But there is one notable name that should be in the discussion that escapes from most...

Cubs 1, Dodgers 0: This Was Obviously All Kenley Jansen’s Fault

Oh boy. Zack Greinke was marvelous again for the Dodgers, going six scoreless innings while striking out five and limiting the Cubs to just five baserunners. Greinke did labor a bit, throwing 111 pitches, but he never appeared in any real danger after the first inning was complete. However, Greinke also couldn’t get any run support yet again and thus left with the score tied at...

Kenley Jansen Is Just The Best

Kenley Jansen hasn’t pitched in a while, and that’s disappointing. He’s thrown only 16 pitches since the start of last week, on June 18 in Texas, and that’s it. That’s because the Dodgers have either been losing or blowing out the Giants, and you know how Don Mattingly feels about using his closer in non-save situations. I’m not here today to whine about the manager...

The Los Angeles Dodgers Bullpen Woes

Kenley Jansen The 2015 Los Angeles Dodgers have a chance to do something special. Fans and analysts agree: This is the year the Dodgers could finally get back to the World Series and win it all. With an offense that when healthy has quality hitters up and down the lineup along with a pitching staff led by reigning Cy Young and MVP Clayton Kershaw, the 2015 Dodgers look primed to...

Los Angeles Dodgers’ ace gets 100th career win

It was a pretty mediocre week for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The team finished 4-3 against the Miami Marlins and last-place Colorado Rockies. They were only able to muster two wins in four games against the lowly Rockies. It didn’t matter too much; the Dodgers are still 4.5 games ahead of San Francisco for first in the National League West. They are the third-best team in baseball...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Predicting the playoff bullpen

The Los Angeles Dodgers have one of the best starting rotations in baseball. They have one of the deepest lineups in baseball, and have two or three extremely solid bench players depending on your opinion of Andre Ethier. Despite a $238 million dollar payroll, the Dodgers still have one glaring hole that could keep them from winning their first World Series since 1988. Kenley Jansen...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors: Bullpen edition

One “Los Angeles” baseball team made a splash this week, acquiring two solid relief pitchers to fix their bullpen issues. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the one that actually plays in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim made their first dent in the trade market early on, when they traded struggling former closer Ernesto Frieri to the Pirates for their struggling former...

Kenley Jansen Is Suddenly The Worst Closer In Baseball, Or Something

Oddly — or, I don’t know, maybe it’s not — the tenor of discussion following last night’s extra-inning loss is less about Brandon League being terrible than it is about Kenley Jansen being unable to hold onto a 2-1 lead in the ninth inning. For clarity, here’s what Jansen did. He struck out Hector Sanchez on four pitches. Then, he got Angel Pagan to hit a grounder...
