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.

Dodgers Release Erik Goeddel, Zac Rosscup

The Los Angeles Dodgers have released veteran right hander Erik Goeddel along with left handed pitcher Zac Rosscup, according to MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick.

Goeddel and Rosscup were both designated for assignment earlier this week as Los Angeles was working out their 40 man roster ahead of the deadline to protect players from the Rule 5 draft.

The 30-year old Goeddel pitched to the tune of a 2.95 ERA this season, splitting time between the Dodgers and the Seattle Mariners, but he struggled with control as he walked 20 batters, threw 3 wild pitches, and hit a batter over 36 2.3 innings played.

Rosscup was claimed off waivers from the Colorado Rockies organization in July of last season and pitched 11 1/3 innings out of the Dodgers’ bullpen.
