Jansen struck out two during a spotless inning of work to earn his 46th save of the season Thursday versus the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The big righty had five days of rest prior to Thursday's outing, and he was in top form as he threw 10 of 13 pitches for strikes while retiring the side in order. Jansen now sits second in baseball in saves behind Jeurys Familia, and will remain a top-notch fantasy reliever over the season's final week.

Jansen is dealing with some stiffness in his right wrist, but isn't expected to miss any games because of it, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports. "I'm not sitting. Just [taking] anti-inflammatories," Jansen said after recording his 45th save of the season in Friday's win over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Jansen noted that his wrist has been stiffening up when he begins warming up in the bullpen for his appearances, but the issue his usually remedied after throwing a few pitches. He said he also experienced some soreness after Friday's game, but so long as the wrist doesn't bother him when he's warmed up and on the mound, manager Dave Roberts isn't likely to turn to other options as his closer. Fantasy owners should continue to keep Jansen active over the final couple weeks of the season.

Jansen struck out the side while allowing a single to lock down his 44th save of the season against the Yankees on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Jansen has been practically untouchable in 2016, posting a 1.75 ERA and a career-best 0.65 WHIP. His 43 saves trail only Jeurys Familia of the Mets, and opponents are hitting just .150 against him. He has 94 strikeouts to only 9 walks.

Jansen struck out one in a clean ninth Wednesday against Arizona for save No. 43 of the season.

EDGE Analysis

He just keeps on cruising along, having allowed only a single baserunner in four September appearances. Jansen and O's closer Zach Britton remain in a cross-country duel for the league's most impressive relief stats -- Britton owns an insane 0.65 ERA, but Jansen owns a matching (and even insaner) 0.65 WHIP.

Jansen struck out one while working around a hit to record his 41st save of the season Sunday versus the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The dominant season continues for the Dodgers' star reliever, as he now sits in sole possession of second place in saves among closers and owns an otherworldly 13.3 K/9 rate. Jansen will continue to play a key role out of the bullpen as his club jostles for playoff positioning down the stretch.

Jansen notched his 40th save Wednesday in Colorado, striking out the side while working around a hit in a scoreless ninth.

EDGE Analysis

Jansen's best season yet now features a stunning 84:9 K:BB, 1.88 ERA and 0,68 WHIP over 57.1 innings -- a set of numbers that compares well to pretty much any other reliever in the game. He's given up a few runs recently, but has actually been striking batters out even more prolifically than before -- he's averaging two whiffs per appearance over his last seven.

Jansen struck out one in a clean inning of work to earn his 39th save of the season Sunday versus the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Working for the third consecutive day, Jansen was no worse for wear and he threw 10 of 12 pitches for strikes while retiring the side in order. Jansen blew Friday's save opportunity, but he bounced back with a couple of successful conversions. Given that he has now pitched six times in the last eight days, he will likely be unavailable for Monday's series opener at Coors Field.

Jansen pitched a clean ninth inning Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Cubs to earn his 38th save. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

The closer needed just 12 pitches, 10 of which he threw for strikes, to nail down Julio Urias' fifth win of the season. It was an encouraging bounce-back performance for Jansen after he blew a save opportunity against this same Cubs squad on Friday and keeps him well on pace to surpass the career-best 44 saves he tallied in 2014.

Jansen struck out two in a perfect ninth against the Giants on Wednesday for his 37th save.

EDGE Analysis

In 54 games last year, Jansen recorded 36 saves; through his first 54 this year, he precisely duplicated that number, and now he's exceeded it. In fact, Jansen has actually been even better this year than last year, which is saying something. His WHIP is now down to an insanely low 0.69, the best mark of his career by a good margin.

Jansen picked up a four-out save, his 36th, despite allowing a run Tuesday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Jansen gave up a meaningless solo home run to Denard Span in the ninth after the Dodgers had extended their lead to five runs in the bottom of the eighth inning. He has now converted eight straight save opportunities with a ludicrous 20:2 K:BB in just 9.2 innings as he remains one of the nastiest relievers in the major leagues.
