Jansen rejected the Dodgers' qualifying offer Monday, making him a free agent, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports.

EDGE Analysis

After recording 47 saves in what was the best season of his career, Jansen's decision to decline the offer is not surprising, as he figures to have no trouble securing a lucrative, long-term deal on the open market. Jansen's value may have decreased slightly, however, as another team will now have to surrender a draft pick to sign him.

Jansen received a qualifying offer from the Dodgers on Monday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jansen posted 47 saves en route to the best year of his career, so it's unlikely that he'll accept the offer given the high demand for elite relievers. However, this move will likely decrease his market value a bit now that teams need to give up a draft pick in order to sign him.

Jansen will be available for more than one inning in Wednesday's Game 4 matchup with the Cubs, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Plunkett notes that Jansen wouldn't likely be called upon to record six outs, the Dodgers' best reliever could be asked to go more than one inning if called upon Wednesday. He had very few outings longer than a single inning during the regular season, but he's had four such outings through just six appearances this postseason.

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.
