Kenley Jansen would be fine with Craig Kimbrel joining the Dodgers — just not as their closer

CBS Sports

The Dodgers (25-14) may be off to a strong start this season, but the team needs help in the bullpen. The offseason acquisition of Joe Kelly hasn't gone too great for L.A. so far this season, and the team's closer Kenley Jansen is allowing more runs than he used to. For a closer look at the back end's struggles, here's Matt Snyder with more.

But there is an available solution for the Dodgers bullpen, and that's free agent closer Craig Kimbrel. Kimbrel, who remains unsigned, has pitched nine seasons and has collected 333 career saves to go along with a 1.91 ERA. After June 2 (MLB Draft), teams will no longer have to forfeit a draft pick to sign him.

Jansen, the Dodgers established closer, said he wouldn't mind Kimbrel as a teammate.
