While the Dodgers endured some inconsistency in the starting rotation and bullpen, there was confidence come the ninth inning. Kenley Jansen became a nationally-recognized name last season, earning All-Star Game honors for the first time in his career.

The power right-hander converted 47 saves, pitched to a 1.83 ERA, averaged 13.6 strikeouts per nine innings and sported a career-low 0.67 WHIP.

The offseason turned into quite the whirlwind for Jansen, as he made the decision to re-sign with the Dodgers during his wedding in Curacao. Jansen received a 95 rating in MLB The Show 17, which is tops amongst all closers.

Zach Britton and Aroldis Chapman tied for second place with a 92 rating, while Wade Davis was the only remaining closer to have a rating in excess of 90 (91). Mark Melancon (89), Seung Hwan Oh (87), Cody Allen (87), Roberto Osuna (86), Craig Kimbrel (86) and Jeurys Familia (85) rounded out the remaining spots on the list.
