Dodgers Expected to Activate Kenley Jansen on Saturday

After missing more than a month of the 2015 season after undergoing surgery on his foot during spring training, Kenley Jansen is set to rejoin the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend.

On Wednesday, Jansen finished his rehab appearance with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga. The next step in his process would be activation onto the Dodgers’ 25-man roster, something¬†that is expected to happen on Saturday in time for the Dodgers’ game with the Colorado Rockies.

The Dodgers’ bullpen has already been dominant this season, even in Jansen’s absence, but the added presence of Jansen as the regular closer should go a long way toward helping the other pitchers – such as Yimi Garcia – to lock down specific roles in the late innings.
