Kenley Jansen’s charity pitches in for kids; Dodgers reliever not re-living past playoff seasons

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Jansen’s eponymous foundation plans to donate four more lockers to hospitalized children in the next year, with financial assistance from the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation.Baseball, by comparison, offered Jansen few recent memories worth revisiting.Jansen derived no glory in ending Game 5 of the National League Division Series on the mound against the Washington Nationals. He had enjoyed a fine view from the bullpen as Clayton Kershaw surrendered a pair of home runs to tie the score in the eighth inning, and Joe Kelly allowed a go-ahead grand slam in the 10th, of the Dodgers’ season-ending 7-3 loss. The question of why the most decorated closer in franchise history was not on the mound for any critical late-inning moments cast a shadow over the team’s latest postseason exit.“I’m always on the same page with Doc,” Jansen said of Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. “You can question this game. It’s a what-if game. If they had put me in earlier and something would have happened – there’s always a what-if. I’m ready to (pitch) any time. Understanding that he wanted to lengthen that game knowing there’s no one behind me. … It didn’t work out. Like I say, we win together, we lose together.“As long as I can play in this game, hopefully Doc can be my manager. That’s how awesome, a great man, energetic, the positive mindset, what he built in the clubhouse – it wasn’t like this before he came here.” Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire The Dodgers’ World Series loss to the Houston Astros in 2017 has invited deeper questions than usual.A series of recent reports in The Athletic cited pitcher Mike Fiers among four “people who were with the Astros” in 2017 who said the team illegally stole signs during the season.Stealing signs without the use of electronics isn’t outlawed by Major League Baseball. However, the former Astros allege the team used a television monitor in the hallway leading to the home dugout at Minute Maid Park to decode opposing catchers’ signals in real time. By banging on a trash can, an audio signal relayed the coming pitch to Astros hitters. MLB is investigating the allegation.Any Dodger would be justified feeling embittered by the seven-game World Series loss. Jansen said he’s ready to move forward, and let the Astros take their punishment.Related Articlescenter_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start LOS ANGELES — Dodgers pitcher Kenley Jansen had little interest in thinking about the past Tuesday, except as it concerned his son, Kaden.A bacterial infection sent Kaden Jansen, who was 2 years old at the time, to a hospital in 2017.“We went to New York for Christmas,” the pitcher said. “You plan all this great stuff that you have to do out there and the reality is our kid got sick. High fever. Spent some days in the hospital. I remember that we didn’t have any toys, nothing.”Flash forward a couple of years. Jansen donated two 4-foot tall lockers full of iPads, video games and stuffed animals to the Ronald Reagan Medical Center at UCLA. It was a welcome distraction for a handful of kids Tuesday afternoon, one that Jansen was happy to pay forward. “It’s baseball, man. They’ve still got to hit it,” Jansen said. “Teams try everything. It’s time for Major League to control that part. Put a blurry sign where fans aren’t going to see (the catcher’s fingers). If some teams cheated about that and they have to pay a big fine, or someone’s going to be banned forever or lose their job, they can’t be in this game.”Jansen finished the 2019 regular season with a 3.71 earned-run average, a career high. Jansen’s eight blown saves were also his most ever. That – more than ceding critical Game 5 innings to Kershaw and Kelly – seems to be motivating Jansen’s offseason training.“I probably will get my mind back to baseball at some point,” he said. “I’ll be working hard this offseason going three times a week to Dodger Stadium, to continue to become a better pitcher, to get back to where I used to be.”last_img read more
