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.

Hopefully he converts all his save opportunities in the World Series this year (and that that's not a vacuously true statement)

Jansen may be the first player to truly come into camp "in the best shape of his career"...
