30-year old righty reliever Brandon League signed a big extension with the Dodgers last year (4 years, $27.5 million bucks), so they decided that he would be the closer over Kenley Jansen. It has proven to be a mistake so far this year. League has pitched in 14 games (0 starts) for the Dodgers so far this year and he is 0-2 with 8 saves, a 6.28 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. He has given up 16 hits (3 homers) and he has walked 4 batters while whiffing only 7 of them in 14 1/3 innings, which isn’t too impressive at all. If League doesn’t turn things around soon, the Dodgers will have no choice but to replace him as the closer with Kenley Jansen. Jansen has pitched in 20 games (0 starts) for the Dodgers so far this year and he is 1-1 with 2 saves, a 2.25 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP. He has given up only 13 hits and 5 walks while whiffing 28 batters in his first 20 innings, which is pretty darn impressive. Jansen has had issues with his heart early on in his career and that is likely why the Dodgers gave League the big contract. But, Jansen is a far better pitcher than League and he should be the closer for the Dodgers.
