GLENDALE , Ariz. (AP) Kenley Jansens numbers are down, but in a good way.His fastball velocity has dipped for now, but he figures it will return. And besides, he said, The radar gun is overrated.The most important figure is 25 the number of pounds the Los Angeles Dodgers closer lost in the offseason which he says is why he feels like hes in better shape overall.Jansen pitched his first Cactus League inning on Sunday, retiring the Texas Rangers on 12 pitches.Jansen threw 10 strikes, getting one strikeout, and pitched around an error. His fastball topped out at 92 mph , about 3 mph slower than his usual high.The normal me in spring training, Jansen said. Sometimes the radar gun can get you in trouble. I learned my lesson last year. I wasnt ready. Next thing you know, the ball didnt have life (out of my hand).Jansen said hes focusing more on his legs, and not trying to muscle the ball. He credited pitching coach Rick Honeycutt for the change in philosophy.Hes the best. He makes it so much easier for us, Jansen said.Jansen had surgery in November to correct an irregular heartbeat that sidelined him last August before he returned late in the season. He had a similar procedure in 2012.Now 31, he decided to shed some weight because of the heart problem and his career-high 3.01 ERA. Since joining the Dodgers in 2010, his ERA is 2.20.I feel great. Im proud of myself. I want to play this game for a long time, Jansen said. I had a great offseason , working out, losing all this weight. It paid off today.Manager Dave Roberts said Jansen will next work in a game on Wednesday. Jansen doesnt expect this spring to be much different than his usual approach to getting ready.I usually try to get 8-10 innings, he said.NOTES: Roberts said SS Corey Seager is doing well in his continued rehab from elbow and hip surgery that caused him to miss the 2018 season. Right now, hes in as good a spot as we could have hoped, the manager said. Seager, the 2016 NL Rookie of the Year, played in an intrasquad game, getting four at-bats. He also took some ground balls and ran the bases. Clayton Kershaw played catch on Sunday , ramping up the intensity, Roberts said. The manager said the Dodgers ace is back on track after cutting a workout short early last week with left shoulder discomfort. Walker Buehler had his first bullpen session on Sunday as the Dodgers continue to carefully monitor his workload. The right-hander, who underwent Tommy John surgery in 2015, threw 160 innings as a rookie last year between the regular season and his start in Game 3 of the World Series. HOUSTON (AP) Chris Sale is set to make his next scheduled start for the Boston Red Sox. And now, he knows that will be in the World Series.Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Thursday that Sale threw on flat ground again earlier in the day and was feeling better since a stomach illness led to him spending a night in the hospital.So hes ready for his next start, Cora said before Game 5 of the AL Championship Series.Bostons 4-1 victory over the Houston Astros put the Red Sox in the World Series for the first time since 2013. Sale is expected to start the opener Tuesday night at Fenway Park against the Los Angeles Dodgers or Milwaukee Brewers.Sale was initially slated to pitch Game 5 of the ALCS on Thursday, but was ruled out because the illness left him weak. If the Red Sox had lost, Sale would have been lined up to start a Game 6 back home on Saturday.Instead , his teammates closed out the series, and the lefty ace gets more time to rest and recover.Sale has been regaining strength since his release Monday from Massachusetts General Hospital, where he spent Sunday night for observation.The club hasnt specified Sales ailment or treatment, though Cora has said it was nothing serious.
