Kenley Jansen is still awesome, especially if he can get around his propensity for giving up moonshots. His HR/9 rate is almost double his previous career high (1.5 vs .8 in 2012), but his strikeout rate is the highest it’s ever been and he’s walking fewer batters than ever. He still doesn’t give up a lot of home runs, but when they do they go FAR, like when Bryce Harper and Mike Trout took him deep. Luckily, those both happened with the Dodgers comfortably in the lead, so it’s better to get those moonshots out of the way in a three run game than in a one-run game. Jansen is still one of the premier closers in baseball and the best arm out of the Dodgers’ pen.
