Bump! Any new thoughts on League? He's been named Dodgers closer...can he keep the job all season?
I extremely doubt it. Jansen is just so much of a superior talent that the Dodgers would be foolish to stick with League too long if Kenley is healthy.

Hasn't pitched all week... did i miss an injury?
He was actually warming up there in the top of the 9th alongside Belasario. The announcer said that Belasario enters the game if it is still tied and if the Dodgers had taken the lead, then League would have been coming in.

8.9% K% is way down from his 17.5% career average ... SwStr % is way down from his career average (6.6% vs. 10.2%) and as a result batters are making contact at a ridiculous rate - 86.7% overall vs his 78.3% career average (93.9% in the zone vs. his 89.4% career average, 66.7% out of the zone vs. 53.4% career average). For context, this Contact% is 6th-worst among RPs with >=10 IP, and his SwStr% ranks about 165th within the same pool.
The .237 BABIP has helped him (.284 career average BABIP) and fortunately he hasn't been walking guys (only 1 BB in 11 IP)...then again, of course you won't be walking guys when everyone is making contact.
As batters continue to make contact at a similar rate, you would expect that BABIP to rise and bad things to ensue. Yes, it's been a small sample size, but owners are already worried about having Jensen in the wings.
I'm targeting Niese/Bailey/Minor in an NL-only and hoping that their owners don't see the same stats.

finished! Another reminder to never pay for saves! ugghhh!,
he was just about the cheapest closer going in drafts due to everyone knowing he would lose the job eventually. Only MarmLol and Veras went after him of opening day closers.
I agree though; never pay for saves!

I don't own him, but it sure seems like he's a bad closer.
