Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters before Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday that he was unsure on Kenley Jansen's role.
"We'll play it by ear. See how the game plays out," Roberts told the media. Jansen was not good on Saturday while blowing a save against the Rays in Game 4; allowing two runs -- one earned -- on two hits with a walk. The right-hander dealt with velocity issues earlier in the postseason, as well, and wasn't used in some save chances earlier in the playoffs. The question now is who Roberts turns to if the Dodgers have a lead late on Sunday. Oct 25 5:40 pm (EST)
