Kenley Jansen Would Be Fine With Dodgers Signing Craig Kimbrel 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri May 10, 2019 12:09 pm

The Los Angeles Dodgers are more than 10 games above .500, but the bullpen has been an issue so far this season.

Kenley Jansen, L.A.\'s closer, has a 4.67 ERA.

He said he\'d welcome Craig Kimbrel if the Dodgers decided to sign the veteran reliever.

\"Why not?\" Jansen said. \"We want to win a championship, right?\"

He also made it clear that while he\'d have no problem sharing the bullpen with Kimbrel, he wouldn\'t give up save opportunities.

\"That\'s what I get paid for,\" Jansen said. \"I get paid for closing ballgames. Why should I have to do anything different? That\'s my question. It doesn\'t make any sense.\"
