The Dodgers phenom closer, Kenley Jansen recorded his 11th save of the year and the 200th of his career for the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon.
Equally as impressive, Kenley Jansen has STILL not reached four balls in a count this season. That’s right, he has yet to walk a batter. He has now 43 straight strikeouts without a walk; the new MLB record to open a season. His last walk was surrendered to the Giants on October 1, 2016.
Jansen is now in pursuit of Dennis Eckersley’s best strikeout to walk ratio; 18.33 at season’s end. Kenley Jansen hasn’t received too many save opportunities this season, with the Dodgers offense not leaving much a chance for most competition. However, Jansen still proves to be the best closer in the game, without a shadow of a doubt
