Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen has made it clear that he won't discuss a new contract during the season, says Bill Shaikin of the LA Times. Jansen said that there were no talks going on right now, and that when the season starts on Monday, he wouldn't entertain contract negotiations.

The 28-year-old declined to say that his preferred choice would be to stay with the Dodgers, saying that his job is trying to help the team win a championships. Jansen saved 36 of 38 opportunities last season, and if he can continue that success this season, he should be in line for a big payday.
