News 
 Roberto Osuna tossed a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 6-2 Grapefruit League loss to the Nationals.

RHP Kenley Jansen hasn’t reported to summer camp yet, said Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts.
Brad Camara
Sun, Jul 5th
 Roberto Osuna struck out three while allowing three unearned runs in an inning of work on Saturday.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Sun, Mar 8th
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
  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.

Notes 
 If you want to invest in a closer but don't want one of the top-priced guys, you could do far worse than Roberto Osuna, who is my No. 1 reliever. He's done that thing that managers love where he's "proven himself" able to handle the late-inning work, and he pitches for one of the best teams in the league, which means the saves should be there. This is a great spot to dip your toes into the saves category.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He's not the dominant force of yesteryear, but he's still a safe saves source in the shortened season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Osuna may not be quite the pitcher he was in his absolute prime, but he's not far off. He has yet to have a season in the majors with a WHIP above 1.00, and his strikeout rate has rebounded to above-average, if not elite, levels. He has immense job security on an excellent team and should once again provide all the numbers you could want from a closer. Draft him with confidence.
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.
