Dodgers closer Jansen has foot surgery, out 8-12 weeks

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen has undergone surgery to remove a growth from a bone in his left foot and will miss the start of the regular season.

The team says Jansen will be on crutches for about 10 days after Tuesday's surgery in Los Angeles. He will then wear a boot for three to four weeks. He's expected to be out about eight to 12 weeks.

The growth was found when Jansen reported discomfort while running last week. An X-ray, MRI and CT scan all showed the problem in the fifth metatarsal of his left foot.

Jansen saved 44 games in 49 chances last season. He had a 2.76 ERA in 68 appearances.

Pitchers and catchers report to spring training in Arizona on Thursday. The Dodgers open the season at home April 6 against San Diego.
