Closer Kenley Jansen rejoins Dodgers, expects offseason heart surgery

Stuck in Los Angeles over the weekend, unable to travel to Denver because of concerns about his heart, Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen rejoined the club for Monday’s series opener against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

“To be honest, it was a little boring to be at home,” Jansen said before the Dodgers faced the Reds. “I love my wife. I love my kids. But my mind was really with the team.”

Jansen did not idle during his days away from the team. He maintained his exercise regimen so he could pitch in this series. He visited his cardiologist Thursday and underwent an examination Friday. The tests firmed up Jansen’s expectation of undergoing a second ablation to correct his irregular heartbeat.

Kenley Jansen to be sidelined about a month

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen will miss about a month while being treated for an irregular heartbeat, a source tells MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal. The timeline was first reported by ESPN’s Buster Olney.

Jansen was hospitalized prior to Thursday night’s 8-5 win over the Rockies, and after initial tests, he flew back to Los Angeles to meet with his cardiologist for additional tests on Friday. Jansen felt the irregularity at the team hotel and never made it to Coors Field.

Scary stuff - fingers crossed for Jansen.
