Win one, lose one. Simply days after bringing all-star first baseman Freddie Freeman to the group, the Los Angeles Dodgers misplaced their longtime nearer. Kenley Jansen has signed a one-year contract wth the Atlanta Braves for $16 million.
Satirically, Freeman is a former Atlanta Courageous, though that group allowed him to go away when it traded for Oakland A’s first baseman Matt Olson.
Proper-hander Blake Treinen will attempt to fill Jansen’s nearer footwear. Jansen, 34, spent his total profession with the Dodgers group. Final season, he posted a 2.22 ERA (185 ERA+) and a 2.39 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 69 innings.
For his profession, he has a 2.37 ERA and a 5.01 strikeout-to-walk ratio to go together with 350 saves.
The Dodgers season begins Thursday, April 14 with an evening sport in opposition to the Cincinnati Reds. The late begin is a part of Main League Baseball’s effort to squeeze within the video games canceled by the labor lockout earlier this 12 months.
