With Brandon League unavailable, Kenley Jansen notched the save in Thursday's win over the Padres.

League threw 34 pitches to finish off a shaky save on Wednesday night, so Jansen got the call on Thursday. The hard-throwing right-hander delivered a perfect frame and has yet to allow a run in his first 4 2/3 innings of work this season. He'd be the obvious alternative for the closer role if League has a prolonged struggle, so it's a good idea to keep him stashed away in most leagues.
