Jansen struck out two batters over 1.1 innings and picked up his 41st save of the season in Saturday's 5-3 victory over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Saturday's performance brought Jansen's ERA down to a minuscule 1.32 for the year. Having blown just one of his 42 save opportunities, Jansen cemented his status as one of the game's elite closers. His extraordinary control proved to be one of his best assets, as Jansen now has an absurd 109:7 K:BB for the year.

Jansen gave up a solo home run to Pablo Sandoval while striking out the side in the ninth inning Friday to record his 40th save of the season in a 4-2 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

It's the third time in his career that Jansen has reached the 40-save plateau, and his absurd 105:7 K:BB through 66 innings is the best ratio of his career. The righty could be used sparingly over the final days of the regular season, however, as the Dodgers sit on the brink of clinching home field throughout the NL playoffs.

Jansen allowed one hit and struck out one batter over 1.1 scoreless innings against the Phillies on Thursday en route to his 39th save of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Jansen put the tying run on base in the ninth, but that runner was quickly erased as part of a double play, and Jansen then got Nick Williams on a weak grounder to help the Dodgers avoid a series sweep. The right-hander ranks third in baseball in saves with 39 (second in NL) and has a case to be the first closer off the board in 2018 drafts.

Jansen pitched a perfect ninth inning against the Nationals on Saturday to earn his 38th save of the season.

EDGE Analysis

He retired the side in order, getting two outs via groundballs and one via a pop foul, to preserve the win for starter Rich Hill. Jansen had given up six hits combined in his last three appearances entering play Saturday, but he still hasn't blown a save since July 23, and that's his lone blown save this season. The 29-year-old remains an elite fantasy closer.

Jansen collected his 37th save Tuesday after striking out three Giants over 1.1 innings of scoreless work, though he allowed three hits.

EDGE Analysis

This marks just the third time in 60 appearances that Jansen has allowed the opposition to get three hits off him, and he's now cleared 100 strikeouts in just 62.2 innings. Jansen gave up a rare run in his last appearance, and the way he's been going this year, it wouldn't be particularly surprising to see that be the last one he allows in 2017.
