Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says Kenley Jansen is not available to pitch on Wednesday against the Padres.
Jansen has pitched in three of the last four games so Roberts wants to give him a day off. Joe Kelly is back from suspension and could see a save opportunity if one presents itself this afternoon.
Kenley Jansen allowed two hits and a walk while striking out two to earn the save Tuesday against the Padres.
In securing his 11th save, Jansen worked around two singles and a walk. He's pitched to a 3.54 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 20.1 innings this season.
Kenley Jansen (3-1) took the loss and blew the save Saturday against the Astros, allowing five runs (four earned) on five hits without retiring a batter.
Jansen was completely ineffective, allowing the Astros batters to make hard contact with all of his pitches. Since September 4, Jansen has allowed eight runs in 1.1 innings, pushing his season ERA to 3.93.
Kenley Jansen (3-0) earned the win Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. He allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits while striking out one in 1.1 innings.
Jansen entered the game in the ninth and was able to retire the side. He struggled in the 10th, allowing a two-run home run to Christian Walker and an RBI single to David Peralta. Despite the win, Jansen likely isn't satisfied with this outing.
Kenley Jansen allowed one hit and struck out one in a clean ninth inning against the Rockies on Friday.
With a four-run lead, Jansen appeared in a non-save situation. Nonetheless, he looked dominant yet again. He's compiled 10 saved and a 1.06 ERA in 17 innings this season.
