Alex Dickerson agrees to minor league deal with Padres

LAS VEGAS- Outfielder Alex Dickerson, who hasn’t played in a regular-season game since 2016 because of two major injuries that required surgery, has agreed to a minor league contract with the San Diego Padres.

The 28-year-old played in one spring training game in 2017, on March 11, and was diagnosed with a bulging disk in his back. He had surgery that June 28, returned for spring training this year and the Padres said March 20 that the left-hander needed Tommy John surgery.

Best wishes, but, if the descriptions in the full article are accurate, he seems to be as delicate as Waterford crystal…..

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.
