J.P. Howell, Joel Peralta only locks, Dodgers to close by committee
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that the team's relief situation is still unsettled.
J.P. Howell and Joel Peralta are the only locks for the bullpen at this point, Mattingly said per the Los Angeles Times' Bill Shaikin.
Mattingly also said that, with Kenley Jansen starting the season on the disabled list after foot surgery, the Dodgers may go with a closer-by-committee approach. Instead of having one pitcher fill the role, the team will mix and match, based on matchups.
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen (foot) playing catch Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Dodgers pitcher Kenley Jansen (foot) began playing catch from 60 feet Tuesday, MLB.com reports.
Jansen underwent surgery to remove a growth from a bone in his left foot in mid-February and has been throwing with his knee off a chair. However, he is now able to shed his crutches and able to progress in his rehab.
"I was able to land on the foot and there was no pain," Jansen said. "I just have to take is slowly. It's still healing, but I didn't feel anything wrong."
Jansen was projected to miss 8-12 weeks after undergoing the procedure, which would keep him out until at least the second half of April.
Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen fitted for protective boot

|(2/27/15) Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen was fitted for a protective boot Friday as he continues to recover from surgery, MLB.com reports.
After Jansen has his stitches removed next week, Jansen will be able to begin placing weight on the foot and gradually increase athletic activity. He is expected to be out until at least the end of April after having a growth removed from his fifth metatarsal.
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen (foot) relieved following MRI results
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen said Monday doctors told him the growth in his foot shouldn't return after undergoing surgery to remove it, per MLB.com. Jansen is expected to miss 8-12 weeks after having surgery last week.
"The X-ray scared everybody," Jansen said. "But the MRI gave good news that it wasn't a big thing. They said it was mostly fluid that got into the bone, but if I had continued to pitch on it, the bone could get weak and get damaged, and they'd rather take it out now so I wouldn't be out a long time.
"It shocks you. There's so much stuff in your head. But the MRI calmed me down."
Dodgers will likely go with internal candidates at closer
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) The Dodgers will consider their internal candidates when looking to replace Kenley Jansen at closer, according to the Orange County Register.
General manager Andrew Friedman said the club will be "open minded" about free-agent options, but said he's confident in the team's internal options at closer. With Jansen set to miss between 8-12 weeks, it's unclear where the team will turn. Brandon League is the only candidate currently on the club with a lot of closer experience. It's not known whether he'll get the first crack at the job.
League posted a 2.57 ERA over 63 innings last season.
|2014 summary: For the first time, Kenley Jansen had the Dodgers' closer job all to himself all season. There was no Brandon League or Javy Guerra to contend with, and Jansen did nothing to endanger his job security. He nailed down 44 of 49 save opportunities, striking out 101 batters over 65 1/3 innings and compiling a 2.76 ERA. The only real blemish on Jansen's stat line was a 1.13 WHIP -- good, but far from elite -- as opposing hitters somehow managed a .333 batting average on ground balls. Even so, Jansen ranked fourth among closers in Fantasy points and fifth in Rotisserie value.|
Playing time status: Jansen had surgery to remove a growth in his left foot, and he could miss anywhere from two to six weeks at the start of the season. Having established himself as one of the majors' most dominant closers, Jansen should have no fears for his job security once he comes off the disabled list.
2015 outlook: Craig Kimbrel, Greg Holland and Aroldis Chapman have established themselves as the elite among Fantasy relievers, and if not for his injury, Jansen wouldn't be far behind. Because he could miss a month or more, he should be targeted as a low-end No. 1 reliever in standard mixed leagues.
