Los Angeles Dodgers’ closer Kenley Jansen is expected to miss around a month after being hospitalized due to an irregular heartbeat, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney.

According to Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times and MLB.com’s Anne Rogers, Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts announced that Jansen was after Thursday night’s game against the Colorado Rockies, and will undergo further tests on Friday.

Jansen has dealt with an irregular heartbeat a few other times in his career, back in 2011 and 2012, and underwent heart surgery following the 2012 season.

Jansen has pitched to the tune of 2.15 ERA, 4.36 K/BB rate, 10.1 K/9 for Los Angeles this season.
