Rehabbing Jansen pitches back-to-back days

DENVER -- Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen continued his rehab assignment with Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday, pitching two-thirds of an inning. Jansen also pitched a perfect inning on Saturday night.

The back-to-back test is one of the last hurdles for Jansen to clear before he comes off the disabled list and rejoins the Dodgers after recovering from left foot surgery.

In Sunday's appearance, Jansen allowed one hit and had one strikeout.
