Kenley Jansen Not Opting Out of 2-Year, $38M Deal, Will Return to Dodgers

Kenley Jansen will remain under the Dodgers control for the next two years.

According to Jon Heyman, Jansen will not opt of the $38M and 2 years remaining on his contract and will return with the team next season. This past season, Kenley finished with the highest ERA of his career and his strikeout-per-nine ratio was the second lowest of his career.

In other news today, the Dodgers made a 40-man roster move. They added 23-year-old picher Victor González. He appeared in 38 games last season across Rancho Cucamonga, Tulsa and Oklahoma City. In his outings, he went 5-2 with a 2.31 ERA. In 892⁄3 innings, he struck out 93 and walked 32.

This is the first move in regards to the 40-man roster, but it looks like there will be plenty more coming soon. Four Dodgers are now officially free agents Rich Hill, Russell Martin, Hyun-Jin Ryu and David Freese who has already said a few weeks ago that he is set to retire.
