Dodgers’ Kenley Jansen had high blood pressure in Colorado

first_imgThe great mystery surrounding Kenley Jansen and the Rocky Mountain fever has been solved and the closer was back and ready to perform again for the Dodgers Thursday.Jansen, who underwent a procedure in 2012 to correct an atrial fibrillation condition, was not available during the Dodgers’ loss to Colorado in Denver on Wednesday. He reported a headache, an upset stomach and tests revealed his blood pressure had elevated. He underwent an electrocardiogram and had fluids replaced with an IV.When the Dodgers returned home in time to open a four-game series with St. Louis on Thursday, Jansen was cleared by doctors.• Related: L.A. bats go quiet against Cardinals in 7-1 loss Mattingly said he merely didn’t want to intrude on Jansen’s personal issues.“I wasn’t angry,” Mattingly said. “I didn’t know about it until the fifth inning. That didn’t bother me as far as that situation. It works a lot of times like that, a guy might have something going on through the course of the game we’re not going to be able to use this guy.“I don’t think you’re angry, really. We just lost a tough game. Nothing to be mad at Kenley about. I don’t know, I get taken back a little bit by the fact sometimes you all think you’re entitled to every little bit of information that sometimes could be related to family, could be related to other things. “It’s his situation that we’re talking about and you’ve always got to respect that situation.”Jansen said that the next time the Dodgers visit Colorado, the medical staff will devise a strategy to deal with the effects of the altitude.Owie for HowieSecond baseman Howie Kendrick was held out of Thursday’s series opener because of stiffness in his knee. that resulted from a slide into third base in Colorado. Jansen said when the symptoms first hit him, he was concerned because of his history.“I knew something wasn’t quite right,” Jansen said. “Even if you did the ablation surgery, if your blood pressure is high it can cause a-fib . . . especially with the high elevation; it’s not smart. I wanted to go out there. That’s why I was frustrated yesterday.”What caused the biggest stir was that Jansen did not meet with the media after the game and Manager Don Mattingly was short with reporters when addressing the situation.“I didn’t feel like talking about myself at the time,” Jansen said. “When they started the IV, I had all these memories of all the stuff that happened like ‘Here we go again.’ ”• Dodgers TV: Charter to start carrying games June 7center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
