Guerra and Jensen have been going back and forth all year in the closers role. It was announced yesterday that Guerra has lost the job and Jensen is now the closer for LAD.
Jansen named new Dodgers closer
Kenley Jansen, RP, LAD
News: Dodgers manager Don Mattingly made a change in his bullpen on Monday as he demoted reliever Javy Guerra from the closer role in favor of Kenley Jansen, reports MLB.com. Jansen already has gone 2 for 3 on save chances this season.
Analysis: The Dodgers gave Guerra the opportunity to close but he struggled of late and now it is Jansen's turn. Jansen has a 2.70 ERA over 16 appearances spanning 16 2/3 innings with 27 strikeouts. He clearly has the arm to get the job done. The Dodgers are a winning team so Jansen automatically becomes a viable option for saves in most mixed Fantasy formats. http://fantasynews.cbssports.com/fantasybaseball
And I would rather Jensen then Trout. Although I do have Trout on a team, I think Jensen has way more value for a team that is going to get a lot of wins.
