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. Sep 17 - 10:56 AM

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.
Sep 1 - 3:42 PM

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.
Aug 18 - 5:28 PM

Nationals optioned RHP Blake Treinen to Triple-A Syracuse.

Aug 6 - 3:17 PM

Nationals recalled RHP Blake Treinen from Triple-A Syracuse.

He'll take the place of Zach Walters on the active roster. Chances are he'll only be up for a day until Asdrubal Cabrera arrives.
Jul 31 - 6:02 PM

Nationals optioned RHP Blake Treinen to Triple-A Syracuse.

Treinen was the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs, holding Chicago to two runs over five frames in a start. He'll get another chance later this season.
Jun 29 - 9:02 AM

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.
Jun 28 - 11:14 PM

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.
Jun 28 - 10:39 AM

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.
