Dodgers: Blake Treinen’s Latest Update Offers No Encouraging News

The Dodgers have started to run into a series of health concerns lately. After an encouraging start to the year compared to last season, a few guys have gone down with injuries or ailments. That includes losing Andrew Heaney to a should issue and David Price to the COVID injured list.

But the loss of Blake Treinen is starting to feel like a bit of a concern. The Dodgers reliever has not pitched in a game since April 14th against the Reds. He skipped out on the following series due to right shoulder discomfort and was eventually placed on the injured list. 

Treinen is eligible to return from the injured list this weekend against the Tigers. But according to The OC Register’s Bill Plunkett, that’s not close to happening. He noted this week that among others, Treinen has yet to resume a throwing program since hitting the IL.

“Neither Blake Treinen nor Andrew Heaney have started a throwing program and will not be ready to return from the IL when they are eligible this weekend.”

The good news is that since Treinen is a one-inning guy, he won’t need much time to get going again. But as of right now, the main concern is when he can actually start to throw again. He really helps to anchor the back end of that Dodgers bullpen, and he was missed during the Arizona series.

Treinen has appeared in just 3 games for the Dodgers so far, giving up one earned run across 3 innings of work. He has struck out 5 and induced 3 groundball outs in that very short time.
