Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen is expected to miss about a month with an irregular heartbeat, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney.

Rosenthal adds that the condition is considered to be "very manageable". Last night Dave Roberts said that Jansen, obviously, will not be available for the remainder of the four-game series in Denver.

But that challenge will become exponentially more hard if the earth itself gets into the act, the researchers said. Temperatures have risen about 1.1°C (or about 2 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels.

An irregular heartbeat is particularly concerning news for Jansen given his past heart issues. He was given tests and then was flown back to Los Angeles to meet with a cardiologist for more tests today. Roberts said the right-hander had his medication with him on the trip. "In talking to the trainer right now, his mood is fine".

Jansen is in the middle of yet another strong season finishing games for the Dodgers, holding a 2.15 ERA with 61 strikeouts and a league-leading 32 saves in 54.1 innings.
