Dodgers, Phillies Viewed As Fits For Kenley Jansen

  • Headshot for Kenley Jansen

    The Los Angeles Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies are currently being viewed as potential trade fits for current Red Sox closer Kenley Jansen. The Red Sox are fielding offers for Jansen as he finishes off the two-year, $32 million deal he signed with the club last winter. The right-hander worked to a 3.63 ERA across 51 appearances in his first season with the Red Sox, the second-highest ERA of his 14-year MLB career and well above his 2.52 career mark. He spent the first 12 seasons of his career with the Dodgers before signing with Atlanta for the 2022 season and Boston in 2023. He saw dips in both strikeout and walk rates last season and also saw his ground-ball rate plummet to a career-worst 22.6%. He could viably see save opportunities with either club but could also take on a lesser role entering his age-36 season.
