Baseball Rebellion Pitching Breakdown:

Kenley Jansen

Kenley Jansen is a great example of money well spent in the MLB today. He’s a guy that I see as minimal Risk of Injury Factors with a cut fastball that Mariano Rivera would be proud of. This once catcher, turned dominant pitcher is the LA Dodgers star closer. He has 189 saves in 6 years, which tops Eric Gagne in Dodgers history, recording 47 in 2016. Jansen converted to a relief pitcher in 2009 after being the starting catcher for the Netherland Team in the World Baseball Classic. He made his MLB pitching debut in July of 2010 and has not looked back from there. Jansen just recently signed a 5 year $80M contract with the Dodgers who I think have a chance to win the World Series in 2017. Hope you enjoy this weeks pitching breakdown of Kenley Jansen.
