Los Angeles Dodgers closer
Kenley Jansen explained Tuesday that the medication he was prescribed to treatatrial fibrillation affected his performance last week."I don't want to make excuses ,Jansen said, according to the Orange County Register's Bill Plunkett. "But it's like you're sleepwalking out there. It makes your whole body go slow. I felt sleepy all the time."Jansen added: "I tried. I thought the first day, maybe it would get better. Then the second day it was the same. And the third day...After that, I just thought Aaron Judge Jersey , 'I'm going to hurt the team. I've got to say something and get off this medication.' It might be making sure my heart doesn't stop. But I told my doctor I can't pitch like this."Jansen, who returned from the disabled list Aug. 20, was uncharacteristically shaky in three appearances last week.He gave up a pair of home runs Aug. 20 against the St. Louis Cardinals en route to his fourth loss of the season, and he added to his ledger in the loss column two nights later by surrendering three hits and two earned runs in a 3-1 defeat.Jansen served up another questionable outing in a 5-4 win over the Padres on Aug. 25 when he blew his fourth save of the season by allowing a solo home run to Austin Hedges in the ninth inning.Fortunately for Jansen Gleyber Torres Jersey , a 12th-inning double from Justin Turner allowed L.A. to avoid another disappointing setback.Jansen is now off the previously prescribed medication and said his cardiologist confirmed he is "safe" without it."I just told him, as a normal person it's fine. You could go to work," Jansen said, per Plunkett. "But those three games I had zero adrenaline. My mind was saying Tyler Austin Jersey , 'You gotta go' but my body wasn't working. I can't pitch like that." Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson has been diagnosed with a partially torn ligament in his left hand after undergoing an MRI, the team announcedon Wednesday.Swanson is scheduled to undergo daily treatment through the end of the regular season and will be re-evaluated next week.The 24-year-old previously landed on the 10-day disabled list May 4 because of left wrist inflammation, but the injury only sidelined him 14 games before he returned May 19.When healthy, Swanson has been a key piece for a Braves team that has gone 89-68 en route to a National League East title.To date Clint Frazier Jersey , he has slashed .238/.304/.395 with 14home runs and 59RBI. He also ranks sixthamong all shortstops with 11defensive runs saved, according to FanGraphs.In the event the Braves have to tread water without Swanson again, third basemanJohan Camargocould slide inas Atlanta's stopgap starter at shortstop.If Camargo isn't the replacement,Charlie Culbersonshould see some time at short with the Panamanian holding down his usual post at the hot corner.
