Blake Treinen held the Cubs to two earned runs over five innings Saturday in a Nationals win.

Washington won both halves of its doubleheader Saturday at Wrigley Field. Treinen was making a spot start and will likely be sent back to Triple-A on Sunday morning.

Nationals recalled RHP Blake Treinen from Triple-A Syracuse.

Treinen will make a spot start for the Nats in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader. He has appeared in eight games (four starts) with the Nationals this season, registering a 2.08 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 17/10 K/BB ratio over 30 1/3 innings.

Blake Treinen will make a spot start for the Nationals in Saturday's doubleheader with the Cubs.

Treinen owns a cool 2.08 ERA in 30 1/3 innings (four starts and four relief appearances) this season at the major league level and makes for a decent streamer versus Chicago in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 26 - 8:52 AM

Nationals optioned RHP Blake Treinen to Triple-A Syracuse.

Treinen pitched well as a rotation fill-in for the Nats, but the club will add a reliever before Gio Gonzalez (shoulder) returns next week. The righty should be back later this season.
Jun 13 - 5:23 PM

Blake Treinen gave up two runs in five innings Thursday in a loss to the Giants.

Treinen has been pretty impressive in his four starts and five relief appearances, yet here is with an 0-3 record to go along with his 2.08 ERA. The Nationals might send him back down to the minors now with Gio Gonzalez due back next week.
Jun 12 - 7:11 PM

Blake Treinen pitched six innings of two-run ball in a no-decision against the Padres on Saturday.

Despite not having pitched since May 30 or started since May 22, Treinen proved sharp. In fact, it took him just 63 pitches to get through the six innings. He struck out only one, walked none and got 13 outs on the ground. The Nationals are getting Gio Gonzalez back soon, so Treinen's time in the rotation may be coming to an end, not that it's any fault of his own. He has a 1.78 ERA in three starts and four relief appearances.
Jun 8 - 1:47 AM

Blake Treinen will be skipped in the Nationals' rotation following Tuesday's rainout.

Manager Matt Williams wanted to keep the rest of the rotation on regular rest. Treinen will be available out of the bullpen for a few days.
May 27 - 7:32 PM

Blake Treinen fell to 0-2, allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Pirates.

Treinen walked two batters and then hit Andrew McCutchen with the bases loaded to force in a run in the third inning, illustrative of the right-hander's control woes. Overall, Treinen allowed four hits, walked five, and struck out four in the outing. Treinen has been solid in two outings since taking over for Gio Gonzalez in the Nats' rotation. He will look to pick up his first career major league win in next week's home start against the Marlins.
May 22 - 10:39 PM

Nationals recalled RHP Blake Treinen from Triple-A Syracuse.

Treinen is taking over for Gio Gonzalez (shoulder) in the Nationals' starting rotation. The 25-year-old right-hander has a 0.77 ERA in 11 2/3 innings this season at the major league level and is worth consideration in NL-only fantasy formats for as long as he's up.
May 22 - 3:39 PM

Blake Treinen will replace Gio Gonzalez (shoulder) in the Nationals' starting rotation.

Treinen will make the start Thursday against the Pirates. The 25-year-old has allowed four runs (one earned) in 11 2/3 innings to go along with a 9/2 K/BB ratio at the big league level this year. He's worth a spin in NL-only formats.
May 19 - 4:30 PM

Nationals optioned RHP Blake Treinen to Triple-A Syracuse.

Treinen allowed three unearned runs over five innings against the Dodgers Wednesday in his first major league start. The Nationals will announce a corresponding move prior to Wednesday's game, but it could be Wilson Ramos (hand) getting activated from the DL.
May 6 - 11:05 PM

Blake Treinen took the loss in Tuesday's start against the Dodgers, allowing three runs (all unearned) in five innings.

Treinen impressively held the Dodgers scoreless through five innings, but a pair of errors -- by Treinen himself and first baseman Adam LaRoche -- opened the floodgates for the Dodgers, who used three singles to push across three runs in the frame. Overall, the right-hander allowed seven hits, walked none, and struck out two. 11 of Treinen's 15 outs came on the ground.
May 6 - 10:58 PM

The Nationals will call up right-hander Blake Treinen to start Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Treinen will be going up against Clayton Kershaw in his first major league start. The Nationals will have Ross Detwiler at the ready to back him up.
May 6 - 12:08 PM

Nationals optioned RHP Blake Treinen to Triple-A Syracuse.

He threw 60 pitches over 2 2/3 relief innings Thursday, so the Nationals are bringing in a fresh bullpen arm. Treinen has an interesting arm but still needs to work on his command.
