Reliever Kenley Jansen released from hospital

Kenley Jansen, the big right-hander who experienced an irregular heartbeat after Tuesday’s game, was released from the hospital Thursday.

Jansen spent the past two nights at White Memorial Hospital. When he did not respond to medication, he was put under anesthesia and had his heart shocked back into its proper rhythm.

The Dodgers said Jansen will be reevaluated when he rejoins the team Friday at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers are off Thursday.

Jansen, who has not given up a run in his last 14 appearances, complained that his heart was fluttering Tuesday. He needed just seven pitches to record his second save.

If Jansen continues to give indications that the health issue is behind him, he could pitch as soon as Saturday. Trainer Stan Conte said reliever Joe Beimel had a similar episode while with the Dodgers in 2007 and was able to pitch two days later.
