Tweet out of @kenleyjansen74: Thank you for great ideas, kind messages and prayers.

The following statement was issued by the club on Jansen’s condition:

“Today, Dodger pitcher Kenley Jansen experienced an ablation procedure with Dr. Koonlawee Nademanee in Los Angeles. As expected, the procedure went and Jansen is currently resting in the hospital. The club expects Jansen is going to be ready for Spring Training and available on Opening Day.”

Jansen suffered an atrial fibrillation episode in Denver in August as a consequence of a heart disease that leaves him vulnerable to an irregular heartbeat at high altitude. He skipped a return trip against the Rockies in September following a cardiologist advised he would be at”high risk” of the following episode.

He pitched 6 2/3 scoreless frames in the National League Division Series and NL Championship Series, but he gave up two home runs and blew both of his save opportunities against the in the World Series.

Jansen underwent a catheter ablation in the left atrium of the heart following the 2012 year to cauterize the region and prevent it. He expected a procedure would be required this time using an estimated recovery of eight weeks, in time.
