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.
