Longtime Dodgers Closer Kenley Jansen Placed on Injured List with Heart Issue

Now that the MLB season has turned from spring to summer, player injuries appear to be on the rise

Dodgers fans are well aware, considering the sheer volume of notable LA players that have landed on the injured list with the last month

However, it's not just the Dodgers who are missing key names. On Monday, the Atlanta Braves placed longtime LA closer Kenley Jansen on the injured list with an irregular heartbeat.

Unfortunately for Kenley, this isn't the first time he's had to deal with a cardiac issue. 

Jansen had surgery twice during his Dodgers career (2012 & 2018) to address his heart issues 

But unfortunately, the illness has returned.

It's a sad news that nobody wanted to hear

The good news is Atlanta put Jansen on the 15-day IL, instead of the 60-day

So if all goes well, Jansen should be back by the end of the month
