Kenley Janson is the only one who has made 400 saves in history
Kenley Jansen (36, Boston Red Sox), who has long reigned as the top finisher, has reached 400 saves for the seventh time in Major League Baseball history.
Boston played an away game against the Atlanta Braves at Truist Park in Atlanta, Georgia, on the 11th (Korea time).
On this day, Jansen took the mound in the ninth inning with Boston leading 5-2, recording one scoreless inning and one strikeout. Boston’s 5-2 victory. Janson’s ninth save of the season and his 400th career save.
Jansen is looking amazing this season. His ball speed has increased at the age of his mid-30s, and he has recorded 9 saves and a 0.77 ERA in 12 games so far.
As a result, Jansen became the seventh major league player and the first player to make 400 saves. It has been 14 seasons since he made his first save in 2010.
His only 400 save title is not expected to last long. Because Craig Kimbrel, 35, is close behind Jansen with 397 saves 스포츠토토
Above Jansen are 422 save Billy Wagner, 424 save John Franco, and 437 save Francisco Rodriguez. Depending on the situation, it can rise to fourth place within this season.
However, it is unlikely that Jansen will be able to look at third place or higher in save history. First place is Mariano Rivera with 652 and second place is Trevor Hoffman with 601. Third place is Lee Smith with 478.
Boston won thanks to Janson’s save, starter Brian Beio’s two runs in six innings, Raimel Tapia’s timely hit in the seventh inning against 2-2, and Tristan Casas’ home run in the ninth
