Kenley Jansen made his first appearance at Coors Field since he experienced an irregular heart beat that lead him to have surgery last year. He prepared by drinking a whole lot of water.
Instructed by his doctor to stay hydrated during his return to Denver, Kenley Jansen said he has been drinking seven liters of water per day. That is a lot of water. He notched a four-out save tonight.— Pedro Moura (@pedromoura) April 7, 2019
Jansen celebrated his successful outing with this tweet:
Everything is good. pic.twitter.com/aplu0m5i3G— Kenley Jansen (@kenleyjansen74) April 7, 2019
Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times wrote about Rich Hill’s bullpen session on Saturday afternoon.
“Hill who began the season on the 10-day injured list, threw his fastball and his usual variety of curveballs. His arm felt fine. His knee passed the test. The only problem? Figuring out how to work with a knee brace.” —Jorge Castillo, Los Angeles Times
Around the league...
