Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Bypassed for save chance

Manager Dave Roberts said prior to the Dodgers' 4-2 win over the Rays in Game 5 of the World Series that he was uncertain of Jansen's role, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.Jansen's blown save in Game 4 on Saturday wasn't a total implosion, but it nonetheless continued a trend of underwhelming postseason appearances for the 33-year-old. With that in mind, Roberts' decision to bypass Jansen for a save chance Sunday came as little surprise, with Blake Treinen stepping in and working around a leadoff single to deliver a scoreless ninth inning. The diminished velocity and elevated flyball rate Jansen has experienced during the playoffs could make Roberts reluctant to turn to him in higher-leverage spots for the remainder of the World Series.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Blows save in Game 4

Jansen was charged with the blown save and the loss in Game 4 of the World Series against the Rays on Saturday after recording two outs during the ninth inning and giving up two runs (one earned) on two hits with one strikeout and one walk.The veteran right-hander retired two of the first three batters he faced, but a two-out walk to Randy Arozarena put the winning run on base. Brett Phillips' subsequent RBI single was botched in the outfield by Chris Taylor, and catcher Will Smith missed the relay throw with Arozarena dead to rights at home plate, allowing the game-winning run to score. It was a circus finish to a back-and-forth affair, and Jansen has now allowed three runs (two earned) in 1.2 innings over his two appearances in the World Series. The Dodgers seem likely to test their options for any save chances across the final two or three games of the series.

Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Earns second save of postseason

Jansen picked up the save in Game 6 of the NLCS against the Braves on Saturday, throwing one scoreless inning without allowing any baserunners.A shaky start to the playoffs has put Jansen's role in some doubt, but he got the job done Saturday. As elimination-game save opportunities go, it was a relatively low-stress one, as he faced the bottom three hitters in Atlanta's order with a two-run lead. The Dodgers are evidently still willing to use the veteran in save situations, and he rewarded the team's faith this time around.
