Thu Dec 13 201820:32AP source: Joe Kelly, Dodgers agree to $25M, 3-year contract
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Reliever Joe Kelly agreed Thursday to a $25 million, three-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not yet been announced.A 30-year-old right-hander who was born in Anaheim, California, Kelly was 4-2 with a 4.39 ERA and two saves in 73 games this year for the World Series champion Boston Red Sox. Kelly pitched in all five World Series games against the Dodgers this year and did not allow a run, striking out 10 in six innings. He gave up one earned run in nine postseason appearances with 13 strikeouts and no walks.According to Brooks Baseball, his fastball averaged 98.7 mph this year. The Red Sox acquired him from St. Louis in July 2014.Kelly broke a rib of the Dodgers' Hanley Ramirez when he hit him with a pitch in the 2013 NL Championship Series opener. Kelly hit the New York Yankees' Tyler Austin on the back with a pitch last April 11, four innings after Austin spiked Red Sox shortstop Brock Holt when he slid into second base with a high right foot. That set off a brawl and Kelly was suspended for six games.Kelley's departure leaves a gap in a Boston bullpen expected to lose closer Craig Kimbrel, who became a free agent. He will be a setup man in Los Angeles for closer Kenley Jansen.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
Mon Nov 26 201821:45Dodgers closer Jansen has surgery to address heart rhythm
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen has undergone surgery to address an irregular heartbeat.The team announced that Dr. Koonlawee Nademanee performed the surgery on Jansen on Monday in Los Angeles.The procedure is known as an ablation, and it involves scarring or destroying tissue that sends incorrect electrical signals to cause an abnormal heart rhythm. In a video posted on Twitter, Jansen said he'd be "stronger than ever" in 2019.Jansen has twice experienced an atrial fibrillation episode, otherwise known as an irregular heartbeat, while the Dodgers were in the high altitude of Colorado. It most recently occurred in August, when his heart had to be shocked back into a regular rhythm. He didn't travel with the team back to Colorado in September as a precaution.The Dodgers say they expect the three-time All-Star to be ready for spring training and opening day.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
Sat Nov 17 201800:12Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen set for heart surgery soon
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen will undergo heart surgery Nov. 26 and expects to be fully recovered by spring training.The All-Star has twice experienced an atrial fibrillation episode, otherwise known as an irregular heartbeat, while the Dodgers were in the high altitude of Colorado. It most recently occurred in August, when his heart had to be shocked back into a regular rhythm. He didn't travel with the team back to Colorado in September as a precaution.Jansen underwent a heart procedure in 2012 to help the issue.He said Friday while distributing holiday turkeys that if all goes well, he would be cleared in two weeks. But if doctors find anything abnormal, Jansen said he would be down for eight weeks although he could still do his offseason work to be ready for opening day.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
Mon Oct 29 201818:28Dodgers face winter of decisions on some big names
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Having lost in the World Series for the second straight year, the Dodgers enter an offseason filled with decisions about some of the franchise's biggest names, including Clayton Kershaw, Manny Machado and manager Dave Roberts.First up is Kershaw, who has until Wednesday to decide whether to opt out of the last two years and $65 million of his contract.If he does, the 30-year-old pitcher who has spent his entire 11-season career in Los Angeles can become a free agent. The front office has made it clear it wants Kershaw to remain the face of the franchise."I just hope they do the right thing," pitcher Rich Hill said about management retaining his fellow left-hander.Kershaw wasn't able to rewrite his postseason legacy of struggles, giving up three home runs Sunday in the Dodgers' loss to the Red Sox in the deciding Game 5 .The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner is 9-10 with a 4.32 ERA in the postseason.

Mon Oct 29 201805:11Boston's Market: Red Sox fans roar for another title in LA
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Way up in the reserve seating level at Dodger Stadium, thousands of Boston Red Sox fans screamed, hugged and danced with just as much fervor as the World Series-winning players on the field below.Amid the gleeful chaos, a father in a Red Sox T-shirt and a Bruins cap held aloft his screaming 5-week-old daughter in the chilly Sunday night air, baptizing her in the sights and sounds of another Boston sports championship.The Red Sox had just capped one of the greatest seasons in baseball history with a 5-1 win and a five-game Series victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. While a hometown celebration will happen on the other coast in a few days, the fans who made it to Chavez Ravine seized every chance to celebrate the final step in their club's fourth World Series title in 15 seasons.Boston players heard them from the opening pitch."You look around and I'm like, I never knew there were so many Red Sox fans here," slugger J.D.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Sale stood in the back of the dugout as the World Series was slipping away and started screaming."He's got two pitches!" the Boston Red Sox ace hollered to his left among a stream of profanities, referring to Los Angeles Dodgers starter Rich Hill.Then he shouted to his right.And then straight ahead, pointing with his pitching hand and extending his ring and middle fingers for emphasis.Sale stepped down, kept on shrieking and raised his right hand, his head bobbing up and down and a fire in his eyes like a Shakespearean king exhorting troops into battle."It scared me a little bit," Rafael Devers said through a translator, "because I had never seen him yell like that, and the words that he was saying, I had never heard that come from him before.
