Kenley Jansen was unavailable to close out Wednesday's game because of a heart condition.
Ronald Belisario closed out the win over the Rockies instead. Jansen spent time on the disabled list last season with a similar issue. The 24-year-old will be monitored closely over the next few days before the Dodgers decide on the next course of action. He has a 2.54 ERA, a 0.88 WHIP and an 86/19 K/BB ratio in 56 2/3 innings this season.

sounds like it's a few days at least.
I would say Belisario is closing for now.

Dale Thayer pitched tonight for the Padres in the 8th with a 4-1 lead. looks like he's not the closer anymore.

So glad I dropped him when he went on paternity leave.

Ryan Cook with the save tonight for Oakland. but he came on to get the last out of the 8th with the score 6-4, and then came back out for the 9th after the A's scared 2 more to make it 8-4. no longer a save at that point for Balfour.

Jeremy Affeldt pitched in the bottom of the 7th for the Giants tonight. Santiago Casilla came on to pitch in the 8th. he came back out for the 9th, but after getting 1 out was replaced by Javier Lopez who got the save.
Affeldt is in the mix, but I wouldn't say he is one of the top choices anymore.

Classy. Thanks for the response. Just saying with his poor performance before he went on leave, I saw it coming. Sorry I didn't rush here to post that I dropped him when it occurred. I'll make sure to tell you all about my championship decisions in the future.

Im leaning League. Solely based on the experience factor given LAD is in the playoff race.

If Ozzie was managing, Jansen would probably be asked to keep playing. As it is, I'd lean toward Belisario.

Anyone know if Jansen is going to be placed on the DL?
or is it one of those situations where you just have to drop him becasue with rosters expanding the Dodgers have no reason to DL him?

who has the best shot for saves rest of season:
Frank Francisco
Belisario
League
Cook

Well Francisco has closed out four games in August despite terrible peripherals, so at least he's got the job. Cook is back seat to Balfour at the moment and the LAD situation hasn't panned out yet. I think Francisco has the best shot at saves alone, but I like Belisario/League for overall production.
