Jansen drops weight, feeling good after 2nd heart procedure

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen has dropped 25 pounds since the end of last season and threw his first bullpen session Thursday since a heart procedure in November.

The procedure, known as an ablation, was Jansen’s second heart operation in six years. It came after he experienced an atrial fibrillation episode in Denver this past August.

“I definitely feel great. Ready to roll,” Jansen said at the team’s FanFest on Saturday.

Yankees’ CC Sabathia had heart surgery, to be ready for spring training

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is expected to be ready for spring training after undergoing heart surgery earlier this month.

Sabathia had a stent inserted into his heart to relieve a blockage in one of the left-hander’s arteries, Sabathia’s agent, Kyle Thousand, told The Athletic.

“CC is doing great and will be reporting to spring training on time to get ready to play for his upcoming final season in 2019,” Thousand said.

Richard Adler and Jerry Ross wrote a song on this subject, I believe.

Report: Dodgers’ Kenley Jansen to Undergo Heart Surgery, Expected to Return for Spring Training

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen will undergo heart surgery on Nov. 26 and is expected to be fully recovered prior to spring training, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Jansen announced the upcoming surgery on Friday at the Dodgers’ annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway. Recovery is expected to take anywhere between two to eight weeks depending on what the doctors find during surgery.

“If we don’t find anything, so let’s say they go in and nothing happens, everything is good, I will be done in two weeks,” Jansen said, per Gurnick. “But if something is abnormal, then I’ll be down for eight weeks. ... But I still can do all my [offseason work] to get ready for Opening Day.”

Best wishes, and hopes for a speedy recovery.

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.
