2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: KENLEY JANSEN TO MISS A MONTH WITH IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT

Having already subjected his fantasy baseball owners to a truly hideous April performance, Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen will now add more angst on that front as he will miss the next month due to complications from an irregular heartbeat.  Jansen has dealt with heart trouble for the better part of the last three seasons and he was rushed to the hospital the other day with the most recent flareup.  Clearly this is an issue that goes beyond baseball so the Dodgers are correctly being very cautious here.  As far as who will replace Jansen in the ninth inning, look toward Scott Alexander who picked up a save Thursday in tossing a scoreless frame.  As far as Alexander is concerned, he is not your classic looking closer in that he has just 45 K in 52.1 IP and his 3.27 ERA and 1.26 WHIP are on the high end for a ninth inning guy.  However with that said, the saves chance goes on as we head toward the stretch of the fantasy baseball season and the Dodgers will absolutely be giving Alexander plenty of chances.  Make the add quickly.
