Kenley Jansen comments on Tyler Anderson's 'disrespectful' actions


LOS ANGELES, CA - APRIL 05:  Pitcher Kenley Jansen #74 of the Los Angeles Dodgers pitches in the ninth inning during the MLB game against the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium on April 5, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. Jansen was credited with the save

Rockies starting pitcher Tyler Anderson caused quite the stir after delaying Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw's latest start this week.

Anderson was late in making his trek from the Rockies bullpen to the dugout, and thus left Kershaw waiting on the mound beyond the scheduled 7:10 first pitch. 

"That was one of the more disrespectful things I've been a part of in the game," Kershaw said at the time.

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen shared a similar sentiment when speaking with AM 570 LA Sports' David Vassegh on Friday.

"I've never saw something like that in baseball," Jansen said. "It's ridiculous. It's disrespectful. I don't know what his intentions were, if he was trying to piss off [Kershaw]. People don't realize that, once you've pissed off that guy, it's going to be even harder to beat him."
