Blue Jay pitcher Joe Kennedy, who died suddenly in November at the age of 28,
evidently died of hypertensive heart disease, according to autopsy results reported on Tuesday.
He was 4-9 in 2007 with a 4.80 ERA. More importantly he was a lefty out of the pen.
The jays did intend on bringing him back for 2008.
Apparently Oakland doctors had done extensive Cardiovascular testing as their was a history of problems within his family. They indicated everything was clear and that their were no abnormalities to suggest anything was wrong.
Joe Kennedy was 28 years old.
Oakland is looking for new medical staff, or at least should be.
