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.

J.T. Ginn Not Signing with Dodgers

J.T. Ginn, the Dodgers’ first-round selection (30th overall) in last month’s MLB Draft, posted a message on Twitter on Thursday indicating he has decided not to sign with Los Angeles and instead will pursue collegiate baseball at Mississippi State University.

I don’t know how Dodger fans are reacting but until Turang signed a lot of Brewer fans sounded super ridiculous.  These guys are 18 years old and making a life altering decision.  Even a month may not be enough time.

Ned Colletti Goes Inside Baseball

Controversy surfaced when the question of “juicing” or steroid use came up. Colletti mentioned legendary hitter Barry Bonds, saying, “It hurts me that Barry’s not in the Hall. He was one of the greatest, smartest players I’ve been around —genius.”

While commenting that he never saw any drug use, Colletti did say that of course it was suspected, but that management’s hands were tied because the players’ union did not allow drug testing for athletes. He claims, though, he suspects 90 percent of players were using amphetamines to keep their energy up after long games, exhaustive plane rides and short turnarounds.
[...]
On a lighter note, Colletti had the audience laughing when relaying a story about Manny Ramirez cutting just two inches of his dreadlocks to appease Dodgers dress code.

Some interesting quotes from the former Dodgers GM.
