Unless you desperately need OF I would just hold on to Jensen. I really dont think Trout will make too big of a splash this season.

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.

Kenley Jansen
Jansen named new Dodgers closer
Kenley Jansen, RP, LAD
5/7/2012
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.

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.

Much rather have Jansen than Trout for this year. If it's a keeper league than Trout by a hundred miles.

My guess is that it was the guy trying to sell you on Trout. ;)

Why is everyone assuming Trout won't have an impact. but everyone is going nuts about Harper? Trout has done way more in professional baseball...

I'd still take Jansen just because of his insane K numbers, but it's actually pretty close IMO.
