Don Mattingly: I'm not worried about Kenley Jansen


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Any slight failure by Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen to start this season was bound to be noticed. After all, he was virtually perfect in 2013.

So now that he has given up a run in consecutive appearances for the first time since last May, eyes have been opened. Jansen blew a save against Detroit on Tuesday before his team rallied to win, then took the loss Wednesday night by surrendering a home run to Victor Martinez. But Don Mattingly claimed he's not worried.

"No real concerns," he told the Los Angeles Times. "Kenley's stuff is good. It's coming out good. He's healthy. I think we're going to be OK."

Jansen, who racked up 26 saves in 29 chances with a 1.41 ERA after being named the closer a year ago, has yielded 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings this year with a 4.76 ERA.


Kenley Jansen struggles late again, takes loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Jansen was charged with the loss, as the Dodgers could not rally in the bottom half of the inning. He is now 0-1 with two saves in three opportunities on the season, with a 4.76 ERA in 5 2/3 innings of work.   


Tigers get to Kenley Jansen for first blown save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen blew his first save of the season Tuesday against the Tigers, in a game the team would go on to win 3-2 in extra innings.

Jansen has now allowed two runs in five innings through six appearances, with seven hits and three walks allowed. He also has struck out nine batters and saved two games.  


Kenley Jansen battles trouble to earn second save Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jansen owns a 3.86 ERA and 4:2 K:BB ratio in 2 2/3 innings.


Kenley Jansen nails down first save in first opportunity


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2014) Dodgers right-hander Kenley Jansen showed Saturday why he is now considered one of the premier closers in baseball. He just showed it thousands of miles away from home.

Jansen shut down the Diamondbacks in the ninth inning to secure a 3-1 victory over the Diamondbacks at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Australia. Only a two-out walk to Chris Owings prevented him setting Arizona down in order. He started his season by striking out Mark Trumbo and nailed down the save by throwing out Gerardo Parra after a comebacker.

He threw 15 pitches, 10 for strikes. Jansen should be good to go if called upon again for the second game of the brief series.
