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.

Jansen recorded his 35th save in Saturday's 8-4 victory over the Pirates, recording a strikeout against the only batter he faced.

EDGE Analysis

The dominant closer needed just five pitches to dispose of Gregory Polanco with two men on. Jansen bounced back nicely from his most recent appearance on Wednesday, when he gave up three earned runs over two-thirds of an inning to the Phillies. The 28-year-old is now 35-for-40 in save opportunities this season.

Jansesn struck out the side in a perfect inning of work to earn his 34th save of the season Sunday versus the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The dominant campaign continues for Jansen, who now owns a stellar 1.29 ERA and microscopic 0.63 WHIP through 49 innings pitched. His 67 strikeouts during that span amount to a 12.3 K/9 rate to boot, making Jansen one of the premiere relief pitchers for fantasy purposes.

Jansen notched his 33rd save in Saturday's 3-0 victory over the Red Sox by mowing down the side on 15 pitches.

EDGE Analysis

The dominant closer found the strike zone on 12 of those offerings, impressively setting down Jackie Bradley, Jr., Sandy Leon and Travis Shaw to close out the victory. The 28-year-old has five straight scoreless outings and saves since blowing his fifth save chance of the season on July 22 versus the Cardinals.

Jansen struck out two in a perfect ninth for his 32nd save Thursday against the Rockies at Coors Field.

EDGE Analysis

One way to make sure Coors doesn't work against you is to make sure the ball doesn't go to the outfield, and Jansen did just that with his two whiffs and a grounder. As great as he was last year, Jansen's been even better this year, with his 0.66 WHIP leading all MLB relievers (min. 20 innings).

Jansen allowed one hit and struck out two Rays in an inning of work to pick up his 30th save Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

This one didn't come easy, as Jansen allowed a leadoff single to Oswaldo Arcia and hit Logan Forsythe with a pitch with two outs. Still, the closer got the job done en route to his third straight 30-save campaign.

Jansen struck out two in a clean inning of work to record his 29th save of the season Sunday versus the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Jansen had blown two his his last three save opportunities heading into Sunday, including one in Friday night's game, but he bounced back to retire the Cardinals in order. Jansen, who now sits fifth in the league in saves, has the lowest WHIP (0.69) of any pitcher in that group, and the second-lowest ERA (1.44).

Jansen blew his fifth save of the season Friday against the Cardinals. He surrendered a two-out solo shot that tied the game 3-3 in the bottom of the ninth.

EDGE Analysis

Jedd Gyorko blasted the first pitch he saw from Jansen, handing the closer his second blown save in his last three tries. The ninth-inning man had only allowed one home run all season before Friday. Entering the game, Jansen had struck out Gyorko in four of the eight at-bats against him, making this pill a little harder to swallow. Expect to see Jansen back out there when the first chance at a rebound comes up over the weekend in St. Louis.

Jansen worked around a hit and struck out one to earn his 28th save of the season Thursday versus the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Thursday marked Jansen's first save since blowing his fourth of the season on July 16 against the D'Backs, which also snapped a 14-game streak of not allowing an earned run. The ninth-inning man ranks fourth in saves so far this season, but owns the league's best WHIP (0.70) among closers.
