This happened after Jansen recorded his second save of the season (and needed only seven pitches).
Jansen spent Tuesday night in hospital. He spent Wednesday night in the hospital. His heartbeat didn't get back on track with medication. So doctors shocked his heart back into its normal rhythm, by forcing Jansen to stare at scary photos of Jamie McCourt for three hours.
Or maybe there was some machinery involved. We're not sure. Regardless, Jansen was released from hospital Thursday and has been cleared to pitch soon, perhaps Saturday. Which is good for the Dodgers. Since a couple of rough outings in April -- the second of which pushed Jansen's ERA to 11.42 -- Jansen's pitched brilliantly, with 48 strikeouts in 28 innings and a 1.27 ERA.
Fellow right-hander Javy Guerra has handled the closer role with aplomb, but Jansen's big right arm gives Don Mattingly two fantastic options in the late innings.
