Francona just informed the media

Jenks was diagnosed with a small pulmonary embolism, which is a blockage in an artery in the lungs. The condition is treatable with medication and is not career threatening.

The issue was discovered during the process of treating his ongoing back issues. Sources have said that Jenks will get back surgery once the embolism is cleared up.

Good that they caught it when they did. Left undiagnosed, it can be fatal. Hopefully a speedy recovery.

Good thing that they caught it. If untreated, pulmonary embolism's are very serious and can be fatal.

Get better, Big Man. Hope to see you on the mound in 2012, blowing more games for the Sawx.
