Nothing to worry about. Jansen saved 47 games for the Dodgers in 2016 with an insane 13.63 K/9. The Dodgers provided the 8th-best opportunities for saves with 69. They should be up there again in 2017. Jansen is just ahead of Aroldis Chapman as the top reliever off the board and is being drafted 49th overall.
Kenley Jansen signs with Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers and All-Star closer Kenley Jansen signed a five-year, $80 million deal.
The last top-tier closer left on the market has signed where he's known success. Jensen goes back to the Dodgers where he has recorded a total of 189 saves, a 2.02 ERA, 0.89 WHIP in 408.2 innings. Jensen should be one of the first closers taken in this year's draft.
