Dodgers' Blake Treinen: No longer bothered by back issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (back) completed a bullpen session Thursday and doesn't appear to have any restrictions this spring, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

While he was a member of the Athletics last season, Treinen was shut down in mid-September due to a stress reaction in his back, but the injury was never expected to be an issue heading into spring training. Treinen's ability to complete a bullpen session Thursday can be taken as a sign that he's healthy, so he'll now turn his focus to getting his arm conditioned ahead of Opening Day. After signing a one-year, $10 million deal with Los Angeles in the offseason, Treinen should be the leading candidate to serve as the top setup option to closer Kenley Jansen if he can recapture the form that made him an All-Star in 2018.

Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Signs with Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (back) signed a one-year, $10 million contract with the Dodgers on Wednesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Treinen lost his job as Oakland's closer in 2019 as he struggled with shoulder and back issues, but he is expected to be fully healthy for spring training. The right-hander will pitch out of the Dodgers' bullpen after posting a career-worst 4.91 ERA and 1.62 WHIP last season, although the ability to perform in lower-leverage situations behind Kenley Jansen could allow Treinen to bounce back in 2020.

Blake Treinen: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (back) was non-tendered by the Athletics on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Treinen missed the postseason due to a back issue, though he should be healthy for spring training, assuming he's picked up by another team. After posting a stellar 0.78 ERA with a 100:21 K:BB over 80.1 innings in 2018, he took a step backward in 2019, accruing a 4.91 ERA with a 59:37 K:BB through 58.2 frames.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Won't return in postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (back) will not pitch in any postseason games, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The issue is serious enough that the A's can already rule Treinen out for games that could take place weeks from now. However, given his struggles prior to the injury (4.91 ERA, 1.62 WHIP in 58.2 innings), this seems like a common sense move even if he were medically cleared.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Done for season with back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen will not pitch again this season due to a stress reaction in his back, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

One of the top two closers off the board in many mixed-league drafts, Treinen was a massive disappointment. He logged a 4.91 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 59 strikeouts in 58.2 innings while providing 16 saves and six wins, eventually losing the closer's job to Liam Hendriks. Chris Bassitt is moving to the bullpen to help make up for Treinen's absence. Treinen hopes to be available for the postseason. He said he has had the issue for three weeks and thought he could pitch through it before an MRI revealed the stress reaction.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Falters in low-leverage appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen allowed two earned runs on two hits and two walks over an inning in a win over the Rangers on Friday. He struck out one.

Treinen was brought on with a comfortable 14-7 lead in the ninth and worked himself into a jam by putting the first three batters he faced on base via an infield single and a pair of walks. The right-hander ultimately allowed a two-out single to Elvis Andrus that plated two of those runners before inducing a game-ending pop-up from Willie Calhoun. Treinen's latest hiccup is symptomatic of the inconsistency that's plagued his 2019 campaign, one that's seen him allow multiple earned runs on nine occasions after doing so only twice during his stellar 2018 season.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Strikes out side in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treiner (back) pitched a scoreless inning, striking out all three batters he faced in Saturday's 10-2 win over the Tigers.

Treinen was called on to pitch the ninth with the Athletics holding a large lead, and he retired Jake Rogers, Willi Castro and Harold Castro in order. He needed only 13 pitches -- 10 strikes -- to complete the inning. Treinen's back issues had kept him out of action since Sept. 3, and it may limit the reliever's usage going forward, but he was at his best Saturday. The 31-year-old has a 4.71 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over 57.1 innings this season.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Battling back issues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen has been dealing with back issues, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

The nature and severity of Treinen's back problems are not yet clear. He's pitched just once in the last five days, walking two batters and allowing one run while recording just one out in that appearance.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Charged with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (6-5) took the loss against the Royals on Wednesday after allowing two runs on three hits and a walk while failing to record any outs.

Replacing starter Tanner Roark in the seventh inning, Treinen was asked to preserve a 4-4 tie and quickly loaded up the bases on back-to-back singles and a walk. He then gave up an RBI single to Hunter Dozier before getting yanked, leaving it up to Jake Diekman to finish off the inning. Across 51 games this season, Treinen owns a 4.86 ERA and 1.62 WHIP.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Takes loss against Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (6-4) took the loss against the Cubs on Monday, allowing four earned runs on four hits over two-thirds of an inning. He also recorded a strikeout.

Manager Bob Melvin appears to have made a prudent move in keeping Treinen and Liam Hendriks in their respective setup and closer roles even during a recent stretch where it was the former that looked to be more reliable. Treinen has now been touched up for runs in each of the last two outings after serving up a pair of home runs to Ian Happ and Javier Baez on Monday. The right-hander's 4.75 ERA and 1.58 WHIP both qualify as the second highest of his career and represent a stark departure from the 0.83 and 0.78 figures he generated last season.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Saves the day again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (5-3) was credited with the victory in Tuesday's extra-inning win over the Brewers, firing a perfect 10th inning during which he recorded two strikeouts.

For the second consecutive night, Treinen became the pitcher of record by preserving a tie during his time on the mound and then seeing the Athletics plate the game-winning run in the home half of the inning. Prior to Treinen's entry into the contest, Liam Hendriks notably blew his third save in his last four appearances, while for his part, Treinen generated his sixth straight scoreless outing. Given the respective performances of the two pitchers recently, there's at least a possibility that Treinen begins to eat into some of Hendriks' save chances down the stretch.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Grabs another victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (4-3) earned the win over the Rangers on Sunday, firing a scoreless ninth inning during which he allowed no hits and one walk while recording two strikeouts.

Closer Liam Hendriks was charged with his third blown save of the season in the eighth when he squandered a 4-2 lead, so Treinen got the ninth-inning call with the Athletics trailing by one. The veteran was rewarded for preventing the deficit from growing any larger when Oakland mounted a comeback in the home half of the frame, which made him the pitcher of record and afforded him his second victory over the last four appearances. Hendriks still appears to be manager Bob Melvin's go-to closing option, but the Athletics' skipper certainly took note of Treinen's six swinging strikes and improved command, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. "Mentally, that was huge for him," Melvin said. "You could see the sinker, the velocity played up as the inning went along. He found his cutter again. Threw some good sliders inside and outside. We've been looking for a springboard for him and hopefully that was it today."

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Notches third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (3-3) earned the victory over the Twins on Saturday, allowing a hit and issuing two walks over two-thirds of a scoreless inning.

It wasn't exactly the smoothest performance -- not many are these days for Treinen -- but it was enough to earn the scuffling reliever his third win of the campaign. Treinen has been displaced, at least for the time being, from the closer role, and Saturday's outing marked the fourth straight appearance he's allowed at least one baserunner. Treinen's elevated 4.46 ERA and 1.61 WHIP, both the second highest of his career, underscore his current struggles, and he may remain primarily limited to setup work during the balance of the season.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Continues to struggle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen surrendered two runs on two hits and a walk over one inning Saturday against the White Sox.

Treinen has struggled since returning from the injured list at the beginning of July, allowing three runs over 2.1 innings in his last three appearances. He hasn't picked up a save in nearly a month, and it now appears as though Liam Hendricks is the top option in a save situation. Treinen possesses a 4.54 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 37.2 innings, both of which would be the worst of his career.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Falters in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (2-3), who was activated from the injured list earlier in the day, was charged with the loss in an extra-innings defeat against the Twins on Wednesday, allowing an earned run on a hit and two walks over one-third of an inning. He also recorded a strikeout.

Earlier Wednesday, manager Bob Melvin had expressed his intention of easing Treinen back into action coming off a shoulder injury. That plan was quickly scrapped when the Athletics skipper was forced to deploy the veteran closer in the marathon contest after already having utilized five other relievers behind starter Mike Fiers. Asked to preserve a 3-3 tie upon entering in the 12th inning, Treinen ultimately scuffled through 22 pitches and allowed a go-ahead RBI single to Mitch Garver. Despite the unfavorable result right out of the gate, Melvin probably will stay the course with Treinen as his top closing option for the foreseeable future.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: To be eased back into action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday that he will look to ease Treinen back into action following the latter's return from the injured list, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Treinen was a top-two closer last year, but he has already made multiple trips to the IL with arm issues this season. Moreover, he was just rocked for two homers in one inning during his lone rehab appearance. Liam Hendriks, meanwhile, was just named AL Reliever of the Month and was perfect in save opportunities in Treinen's absence. Melvin said he still sees Treinen returning to the closer role long term.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Activated Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (shoulder) was activated from the injured list prior to Wednesday's game against the Twins, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Treinen made a remarkably quick recovery from a rotator cuff strain, and for what it's worth, he gave up three runs on four hits in one inning in his lone rehab appearance at Triple-A. He will presumably return to being Oakland's closer, but Liam Hendriks may still get the occassional save chance, given how well he has pitched of late.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Hit hard in rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (shoulder) was credited with a victory but also charged with a blown save during Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Reno on Monday, allowing three earned runs on four hits over an inning and recording no walks or strikeouts.

Treinen fired 20 pitches overall during his eventful frame, getting 15 into the strike zone. However, he allowed a pair of home runs to Wyatt Mathisen and Kevin Cron, which led to the bloated line. Despite his struggles, the veteran reliever is expected to be activated when first eligible Wednesday.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Rehab appearance cemented
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (shoulder) will make a rehab appearance for Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

A report Saturday had confirmed Treinen would be making a rehab appearance for one of the Athletics' minor-league affiliates, and this latest news confirms that outing will be with the Aviators. Treinen is expected to only need one turn at the minor-league level before activation when first eligible Wednesday.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Successful bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen (shoulder) threw a successful 31-pitch bullpen session prior to Saturday's game against the Angels, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

The veteran closer reportedly came away healthy from the session, and he'll now get a rest day Sunday. Treinen is next slated to pitch a rehab outing with one of the organization's minor-league affiliates Monday, and if he remains free of setbacks, he's projected for activation when first eligible Wednesday.
