Last week, Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen had a procedure to undergo a heart procedure. It was his second ablation surgery in six years and is expected to be ready for spring training and available on opening day, the team announced.
In a video he posted on Instagram today, Kenley is already back at Dodgers Stadium riding a bike working out.

Jansen suffered from a heart condition that leaves him vulnerable to an irregular heartbeat at high altitude. He experienced an atrial fibrillation in August as a result of his condition and spent time on the Dodgers disabled list as he recovered from the irregular heartbeat. He returned to the mound in late August, earlier than doctors anticipated, and was able to participate in time to help the Dodgers reach the World Series, where they fell to the Boston Red Sox.
Jansen expects to be ready by Spring Training in just a couple of months.
