Dodgers’ Dave Roberts Confirms Blake Treinen Still Working Back With Rehab Games

Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Blake Treinen made his third appearance with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday as part of his minor league rehab assignment.

Treinen struck out two in one inning of work but also gave up two singles and two stolen bases, leading to a run. He gave up a run on two hits in one inning and on Tuesday, gave up three earned runs on three hits in one-third of an inning.

Manager Dave Roberts isn’t rushing Treinen back from his bruised lung. He wants the veteran right-hander to throw a few more competitive innings on his assignment rather than rush back. Before Tuesday, Treinen hadn’t pitched in a while.

“I would assume he’s got another couple more before he gets to us,” Roberts said. “He hasn’t pitched in a while. So just to pitch competitive innings so that when he gets back to us there’s no limitations.”

The Dodgers exercised Treinen’s 2024 contract option for $1 million in Nov. 2023. In 449 career games, the 35-year-old is 36-31 with a 2.86 ERA.
