If you're way ahead in saves and close in holds, it makes sense to drop Jensen for a setup man.

I say hold on to KJ. He'll be back in 10 days. He's still throwing bullpen sessions, so he should be fairly sharp when he comes back. I don't think you should weaken a cat that you are sure to win (saves). Remember, all you need to do in the playoffs is is win 1 more cat than your opponent. If you look at your team and are sure that you can win X cats, don't weaken one of them just to TRY and win another. They all count the same. For example, in a 10 cat league, winning 6-4 is just as good as winning 10-0 in the playoffs. If you try a pick up holds and weaken saves you could end up losing 4-6 instead of that 6-4 win.

Ortiz is out for the rest of the season in all likelihood. He is an easy cut in all but the deepest of keeper leagues. I would hold onto Jansen as he should be back in 10 days. I tend to doubt there is anything fantastic on your wire so unless Ks is really tight and you can move up by adding a spot starter for a couple of starts and get maybe 10 extra Ks out of it, I would not bother.
