Dodgers Injury News: Blake Treinen Has Successful First Outing on Minor League Rehab

The Dodgers bullpen has taken different shapes this season compared to years past. They have moved pieces around consistently to deal with different injuries or inconsistent play.

It was a real concern earlier in the year but has since started to round into shape. The bullpen still isn’t where the team would fully like at this point in the season, but they are now at least somewhat trusted when they come into the game.

However, the relief pitchers could soon get a boost as one of the mainstays from the last few seasons tries to make his way back. Right-hander Blake Treinen is attempting to return this season as he recovers from an injury that has taken a chunk of time from him.

Apparently, he looked good in his first minor league outing, leading many to believe that he could be back with the team sooner rather than later.

Treinen has been one of the more relied-upon members of the Dodgers bullpen since he arrived in 2020. If they were to get him back, it could provide them with a big advantage as the season winds down.

In 2021, Treinen put together a special season for the Dodgers. He had an ERA of 1.99 and a WHIP of 0.98, becoming one of the better relievers in the league. Injuries limited him last season, and he has missed the entire 2023 season so far.

The hope is that he can come back to help with the stretch run. It would give manager Dave Roberts a sense of stability in the bullpen and the team another weapon to use come playoff time.

Hopefully, Treinen can continue to have successful rehab sessions and get back on the mound for the Dodgers here soon!
