Dodgers Recall Reliever Kenley Jansen From Double A

The beleaguered Dodgers bullpen just got a major boost with the recall of catcher-turned-awesome Kenley Jansen from Double A Chattanooga, before tonight’s game with the Mets, the team reported via Twitter.

In 45 minor league innings this season, split between Chattanooga and Class A Inland Empire, Jansen amassed 78 strikeouts against 23 walks. This month, in eight innings in Double A, Jansen had 19 strikeouts against four walks in only eight innings.

Justin Miller was designated for assignment to make room for Jansen on the active roster.
