Kenley Jansen Injury: Heart Problem Sends Dodger Reliever To DL

Remember that story I wrote, just a few hours ago, about Kenley Jansen getting out of the hospital and quite possibly pitching this week-end?

Well, not so much:

The #Dodgers placed RHP Kenley Jansen on the 15-day disabled list with a cardiac arrhythmia and recalled RHP Josh Lindblom from Double-A.less than a minute ago via txt Favorite Retweet Reply

 

Apparently somebody gave somebody else some bad information, and then another somebody (me) took the bad information at face value. Usually this method works out pretty well, because reporters usually don't report stuff that isn't true. But sometimes the system breaks down. This time, for example.

Anyway, it's a shame about Jansen because he's pitched brilliantly since the middle of April and the Dodgers don't exactly need more bad news. Without a long-term prognosis, we can only hope his arrhythmia is easily treatable.

Josh Lindblom's spent this season in Double-A, except when he pitched for the big club in in June, which means he's now skipping Triple-A for the second time this season. Maybe the Dodgers just don't want him pitching in Albuquerque -- the city, not the Tigers pitcher -- where he struggled last season. He's good now, though.
