Kenley Jansen refocusing arsenal this spring

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.

Fantasy Impact

Jansen has been lights out this spring with this next pitch mix. There have also been reports of Jansen showing increased velocity. All signs are pointing to a bounceback season for Jansen, who posted a career-worst 3.71 ERA in 2019.

Kenley Jansen showing early signs of increased velocity

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.

Fantasy Impact

Jansen is being drafted as the ninth closer on average with an NFBC ADP of 109 since the beginning of February. If the velocity continues to rise you can also expect his ADP to do the same. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is going to provide one of the longer leashes at the closer position, making Jansen one of the “safer” options for saves.

Kenley Jansen won't opt out of contract

Kenley Jansen is not expected to opt out of the two years and $38 million remaining on his contract.

Fantasy Impact

Jansen regressed in 2019, posting a 3.71 ERA with 33 saves, which was a six-year low. Despite the regression, Jansen should remain the Dodgers closer in 2020.

Kenley Jansen slams the door for 33rd save

Kenley Jansen secured his 33rd save of the season in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Giants, striking out the side while allowing just one hit.

Fantasy Impact

Jansen likely finishes the season with 33 saves and a 3.71 ERA. It wasn't his best year by any means, but he was still a top fantasy option as the closer for the best team in baseball. The perennial All-Star turns 32 in a few days.

Kenley Jansen picks up 31st save on Tuesday night

Kenley Jansen struck out one in a scoreless ninth to earn his 31st save of the season in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Padres.

Fantasy Impact

Jansen had given up three runs over his last two outings as his shaky season continues. The 31-year-old owns a 3.84 ERA this year to go along with 77 strikeouts in 61 innings.
