Kenley Jansen
News 
 Mike Soroka allowed one hit and three walks over four-plus innings against the Astros Tuesday. Soroka walked a batter in the fifth before hitting his pitch limit and removed from the game.
Steve Painter
Tue, Mar 10th
Kenley Jansen has retired all nine batters he's faced this spring, and has struck out six. Jansen is throwing fewer cutters this spring and is instead focusing on mixing his fastball and slider.
Connor Rooney
Mon, Mar 2nd
 Mike Soroka pitched 2 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Pirates, allowing three hits, three runs (all earned), and two walks while recording two strikeouts.
Steve Painter
Wed, Mar 4th
Kenley Jansen made his second spring outing while continuing to look impressive with increased velocity. Jansen was sitting 93 MPH and touched 94 MPH. His velocity has dipped over the past two seasons which resulted in a meager 14.5% HR/FB.
Matthew Davis
Wed, Feb 26th
 Mike Soroka pitched two innings against the Yankees in his spring debut Friday, allowing three hits and recording three strikeouts.
Steve Painter
Fri, Feb 28th

Steve Painter

Notes 
 Soroka wasn't even necessarily supposed to begin 2019 in the Braves rotation but quickly developed into an ace. Although there's little reason to knock his year, his 7.32/9 strikeout rate ranked 49th out of 61 qualified starters. With an xFIP more than a run higher than his 2.68 ERA, there's every reason to expect regression. Still, there's room Soroka to continue to be an excellent fantasy option despite a step back, so don't avoid him during your draft.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
It feels like we've seen the last of Jansen as an elite closer, as continued velocity declines and struggles with control led to his worst season as a professional. His overall numbers from 2019, other than his bloated ERA, remain fine, but this is not the Jansen that was once the top reliever taken in fantasy circles. It seems clear that Dave Roberts lost a little faith in Jansen last year and with a World Series or bust mentality, don't expect the leash to be overly long. Still, beggars can't be choosers with closer, and Jansen's contract and lengthy pedigree still keep him as a borderline top-10 reliever.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Wish his Ks were higher, but he was a stud from the start in 2019 and should be a valuable fantasy starter again this season.
