We live in a strange world. A guy has a bum calf? Out for weeks or months. A guy has a freaking heart problem? No worries, bro:
Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen said he’s significantly improved from his diagnosis of an irregular heartbeat and could return to action next Tuesday night when the club opens a three-game series at Washington.
“I’ve just been trying to stay in shape and stay sharp. I’m feeling great,” Jansen said prior to Wednesday night’s game against the D-backs at Chase Field. “
He can’t pitch until he’s a couple of days off the blood thinners he’s taking, but that ends on Friday. In the offseason he’s to undergo a procedure to correct his heart rhythm.
Viva medical science.
