GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Javy Guerra worked as a closer in the minor leagues and showed last season he is perfectly comfortable with the pressure-packed ninth inning and recording the final three outs. Kenley Jansen is more than willing to pitch whenever his name is called, too.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly appreciates having both reliable right-handers returning in the back end of his bullpen after each made strong impressions last year. Jonathan Broxton is gone to the Kansas City Royals, though Los Angeles didn’t see much of him in 2011 because of an elbow injury that required surgery.

With much of the focus centered around Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw and slugger Matt Kemp, Mattingly has said it will take better performances from his entire roster for the Dodgers to contend in the NL West.
