Kenley Jansen returns to Dodgers camp after being checked for heart palpitations

UPDATE: Good news, as Hernandez reports that Jansen is already back in Dodgers camp after going to the hospital and “has been cleared to resume workouts.”

==========

Dodgers reliever Kenley Jansen, who missed a month after being hospitalized for an irregular heartbeat last season, has left Dodgers camp to be examined by doctors after experiencing similar symptoms.

Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that Jansen “had shortness of breath last night” and Ken Gurnick of MLB.com writes that he “had a recurrence of heart palpitations.”

Last year Jansen complained of his heart “fluttering” after closing out a 3-2 victory on July 26. He was released from the hospital two days later, but didn’t pitch again until August 26. And then he was unhittable down the stretch, throwing 17 innings with a 1.08 ERA and ridiculous 35/5 K/BB ratio and .127 opponents’ batting average.

Orioles CEO, brother agree to dismiss legal dispute

Baltimore Orioles CEO John Angelos and his brother Lou have agreed to end their fight over a lawsuit in which Lou accused John of seizing control of the team in defiance of their father Peter’s wishes.

Lou Angelos sued John last year, claiming John took control of the Orioles at his expense. Georgia Angelos, their mother, also was named as a defendant.

In a Friday court filing in the case, John, Lou, Georgia and Peter Angelos called on “all claims, including all counterclaims and defenses, asserted therein be dismissed with prejudice in their entirety.”

“The Parties also withdraw and terminate all pending motions submitted in these actions,” the filing said.

Peter Angelos became the Orioles’ owner in 1993, but his public role has diminished in recent years and he turned 93 last year. According to the suit, he had surgery after his aortic valve failed in 2017.

Lou Angelos accused John of trying to take control of Peter Angelos’ assets and manipulating Georgia Angelos. The lawsuit was one of a handful of off-field issues looming over the Orioles this offseason. The team also has a lease at Camden Yards that expires at the end of the year.
