Blog Kiosk: 2/18/2015 - Dodger Links - Jansen Injured and Out for 3 Months

I just love this Korean advertisement featuring Hyun-Jin Ryu, pic via Dan at @MyKBO on twitter.

Below are some more links to check out:
  • And the injury bug bites the Dodgers early.  Via Jon Weisman at Dodger Insider, "Kenley Jansen expected to miss 8-12 weeks after foot surgery."
This morning at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, Dodger pitcher Kenley Jansen underwent surgery to remove a growth from a bone in his left foot. This was discovered when Kenley reported discomfort while running last week. A subsequent X-Ray, MRI and CT scan showed the problem in the 5th metatarsal of his left foot.  The surgery was performed by Drs. Earl Brien and David Thordarson under the direction of Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

Jansen will be on crutches for about 10 days and then a boot for 3-4 weeks. How he progresses during the rehab process will determine his return to competition, but it is expected to be approximately 8-12 weeks.
  • Naturally, everyone is wondering who will now close for the Dodgers.  Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Dodgers have options (in-house) to replace Kenley Jansen at closer."
  • Dustin Nosler at Dodgers Digest looks outside of the organization for a closer, "Looking at pitchers who could, temporarily, fill in for Kenley Jansen."
  • GCRL shares even more Steve Garvey oddball baseball cards.  This fan is definately a huge Garvey SuperCollector.
  • Via Stanley at 1,9870 Miles, "Here's to you, Ernie Rudolph."  This new Dodger blog wrote a great article in honor of an obscure former Dodger who had a birthday recently. 
While not much is known about former Brooklyn Dodgers relief pitcher Ernie Rudolph, one thing is for sure: he had his cup of coffee in the big leagues. Entering his only major league season during World War II, in 1945, the 36-year-old Rudolph was likely called up because talent was scarce during the war.
