Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen is fully recovered from a second heart procedure this offseason and off medication for the irregular heartbeat that sidetracked his 2018 season. Jansen didnt pitch in a Cactus League game until March 9 last year, The Los Angeles Times noted. In addition to working more in the spring, Jansen also has shed 25 pounds this offseason by eliminating sugar and carbs from his diet. This much is clear in a new year: Jansen will continue to anchor a Dodgers bullpen, despite the fact the two-time defending NL champs have added Joe Kelly and saw Pedro Baez emerge over the final three months of last season.
