KENLEY JANSEN RUMORS

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...

Reminder, Kenley Jansen Is Still The Best

Over at FanGraphs this morning, I investigated the Kenley Jansen narrative of “he’s throwing harder, so his cutter is worse, so that’s why he’s getting hit hard!” Which makes all of the sense, except for the part where it actually isn’t true: Fortunately, we live in the future and we can compare things like the performance of pitches that were thrown extremely hard or...

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...

This Is What A 100MPH Cutter Looks Like

(via) Kenley Jansen did something very notable last night. The accomplishment occurred on this cutter, which struck out Mark Trumbo: GIF Link Per Brooks Baseball, the cutter was thrown at 100.1MPH, the fastest pitch of Jansen’s career. He threw a 99.6MPH cutter to Miguel Cabrera last week, but as Grant Brisbee noted, the pitch was actually the most hit-able of the at-bat. Per...

Dodgers sign Kenley Jansen to $4.3 million deal, avoid arbitration

And just like that, all is right in Dodger camp. Word came down on Tuesday the Dodgers and Kenley Jansen agreed to a 1-year, $4.3 million deal that allows the two sides to avoid arbitration. Jansen had asked for $5.05 million, while the Dodgers offered $3.5 million. The midpoint was $4.275 million, which is a “win” for Jansen. Jansen’s arbitration hearing had been scheduled...

Dodgers' news: Kenley Jansen, Shohei Otani, Yunel Escobar, Andres Santiago

Kenley Jansen underwent successful heart surgery on Tuesday. His recovery time will be three to four months. Hopefully, this solves Jansen's issues, as he's missed time the last two seasons with this. Barring anything unforeseen, he should be ready to go for 2013. And the Dodgers are going to need him anchoring the bullpen. Otani update Chad Moriyama has a great...

Dodgers' Jansen held out due to heart trouble

Are you ready for the Dodgers latest scare? Kenley Jansen was held out of the Dodgers last two games on Tuesday and Wednesday because of his heart condition. Jansen spent a month on the disabled list last season with an irregular heartbeat. He had to take blood thinners to get his condition under control and, with fear of possibly hemorrhaging, was not allowed to play. If its...
