Blake Treinen is up to 4 1/3 scoreless innings this spring after retiring all three batters he faced Saturday.
On another team, Treinen would at least be competing for a rotation spot, if he wasn't simply handed one over the winter. The Nationals, though, have the luxury of using him strictly as a reliever, and he could prove to be an excellent one. Unfortunately, it won't lead to much fantasy value. Mar 14 - 4:01 PM

Blake Treinen surrendered four runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Mets.

Treinen had a 2.27 ERA in his previous six starts this season, but he struggled right from the start today and ended up allowing eight hits. His year is now likely over, though the Nationals may choose to send him to Florida next month on the off chance they have need for him at some point during the postseason. Overall, he went 2-3 with a 2.49 ERA in seven starts and eight relief appearances, allowing a total of one homer in 50 2/3 innings. On another team, he'd have a good chance of entering 2015 with a rotation spot. With the Nationals, though, he'll probably be a fallback.

Blake Treinen shut the Braves out over five innings but got a no-decision as the Nationals suffered a loss on Wednesday.

Treinen was making his first start in the big leagues since June 28, and lasted more than two innings for the first time since an August 26 Triple-A start. The right-hander scattered three hits and a walk while striking out three. On the season, he owns a sterling 1.94 ERA with a 1.38 WHIP, and a 29/12 K/BB ratio. If the Nationals, who have already clinched the division, allow Treinen to start again, he's on schedule to face the Mets at home on Tuesday.

Blake Treinen will make a spot start on Wednesday against the Braves.

The Nationals are rolling out their "B" squad a day after clinching the National League East. Treinen hasn't thrown more than two innings since his August 26 start at Triple-A Syracuse, when he tossed 4 2/3 frames. However, he does have a 2.18 ERA over 41 1/3 frames in the majors this season and isn't a bad streaming option in deeper formats against a struggling Braves offense.

Nationals recalled RHP Blake Treinen from Triple-A Syracuse.

Treinen had a minor arm injury in Triple-A last month, but he's back to full health. The 26-year-old owns a 2.35 ERA over 38 1/3 innings this season with the big club and should pitch in middle relief in September.

Blake Treinen has been placed on the 7-day disabled list with Triple-A Syracuse.

Treinen slept on his arm funny and is only expected to miss one start. The 26-year-old owns a 2.35 ERA over 38 1/3 innings with the big club this season and should be a September call-up.

Nationals optioned RHP Blake Treinen to Triple-A Syracuse.

He's clearing room for the addition of Matt Thornton. Treinen holds a 2.35 ERA over 38 1/3 frames for the Nationals this season and will be back up in September, if not before then.

Nationals recalled RHP Blake Treinen from Triple-A Syracuse.

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

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.

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.
Fri, Jun 13, 2014 05:23:00 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.
Thu, Jun 12, 2014 07:11:00 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.
