Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register has a dose of excellent news for the Los Angeles bullpen:
Reliever Kenley Jansen said he is completely recovered from the surgical procedure he underwent in October to address an irregular heartbeat and has been told by doctors there should be no further issues.
“I’m doing well,” Jansen said. “This is going to take care of it, no more problems. Put it in God’s hands now.”
Jansen was taken off blood thinners in November and was able to begin his offseason throwing program on time (earlier this month).
He’s planning to head to the Dodgers’ spring training complex in Arizona next week.
Jansen, 25, has posted a remarkable 2.22 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 14.6 K/9 through his first 145 2/3 major league innings. He will serve as a setup man this summer in front of Dodgers closer Brandon League.
