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.

Kenley Jansen not yet at summer camp

RHP Kenley Jansen hasn’t reported to summer camp yet, said Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Impact

Roberts was unable to specify why Jansen hasn’t report to summer camp, but is hopeful he will show up soon. It is unclear at this time when Jansen will report to summer camp or if it will affect his Opening Day’s status. Jansen recorded 33 saves with a 3.71 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 80 strikeouts across 63 innings in 2019. If Jansen were to miss any time, look for Pedro Baez to earn save opportunities.
