Injury Roll Call: Kenley Jansen undergoes heart surgery, out for at least 3 months

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen underwent heart surgery on Tuesday to correct an irregular heartbeat, a procedure we were all aware would occur during the offseason.

Jansen’s heart problems have sidelined him for stretches during the 2011 regular season, Spring Training of 2012, and the 2012 regular season. Ken Gurnick reports that Jansen will now be out for at least three months as he recuperates.

It doesn’t sound like there were any complications, nor were there any indications this could be a lingering problem, so he should be ready to go for Spring Training.
