Report: Giants interested in former Dodgers closer Jansen originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Giants reportedly are eyeing another former Los Angeles Dodgers player.

MLB Network’s Jon Morosi reported Friday, citing a source, that San Francisco has an interest in former Dodgers and Atlanta Braves closer Kenley Jansen in free agency.

David Vassegh of AM 570 also reported that Jansen and the Giants were discussing a two-year contract.

The 35-year-old Jansen spent 12 seasons with Los Angeles, recording 350 saves in 705 innings pitched with a 2.37 ERA and a 13.0 strikeout-per-nine. Signing with Atlanta last offseason, Jansen recorded 41 saves in 64 innings pitched with a 3.38 ERA.

Coincidentally, if the Giants were to sign Jansen, he would join Joc Pederson as former Dodgers who signed with San Francisco after one season with the Braves.

The Giants are all-too-familiar with what the All-Star closer can do and could use Jansen in a late-innings role alongside Camilo Doval.
