Here I will make a story of justice about what is happening today in the Dodgers Los Angeles, team of the West Division of the National League in the MLB, and part of his relief pitching. The protagonists are the manager Dave Roberts and the private Kenley jansen.
It is difficult to find crews that are bad in themselves. Generally part of the responsibility, and not negligible, is in the hands of the captain, helmsman or Manager if we talk about baseball.
Kenley jansen he’s going through a streak of lousy results. But when we enter the world of numbers we will see to what extent the result is fortuitous, random, the result of the bad physical form of Kenley or only obstacles that can be overcome with the expertise and knowledge of the person pulling the strings.
In home games (22) the Curaçao is hit .228 while on the road (20) only .154. THE ERA is 5.14 at home (21.0 EL), including three homers allowed and 12 earned runs. On the road (20.1) 1.33 with no home runs and only 3 earned runs.
By those who criticize Kenley Jansen (as is already common) because he almost lost the game to @astros, conceding a 2-run homer with no outs in the ninth inning, taking the game 7-2 to 7-5.pic.twitter.com/J5tJo1MwHN

TO Kenley they hit him when there are no outs on the board for .280 and when there are one or two already won, .149. Between the seventh and ninth inning the rivals average .185 while in extra innings .333.
When he pitches on consecutive days they hit .276 and his ERA is 7.27. When he rests one day, his batting average drops to .083 and an ERA to 2.45.
So far all sung. Very easy it should be like bringing in the closer right by tapping into his psychological potential, because these performance fluctuations do not have a physical background. But the best is still to come.
Kenley jansen he has had Austin Barnes as a catcher in 15 games and 15.1 innings of work. In those outings he is batted 49-4 for a 0.82 average, with no home runs allowed and NO CLEAN RUNS allowed. Austin, in this period, has been robbed 2 times of the intermediate.
He is sitting? Do not? Well, have a seat.
For those interested here are the #Dodgers lines:
