Treinen has battled with that shoulder all season long, missing most of the 2022 campaign rehabbing from a torn capsule in his shoulder. The veteran hurler recently revealed that his injury was, in fact, that torn capsule and that surgery was the initial recommendation. Instead, he opted for rest, rehab, and a PRP injection, ultimately taking more than four months to return to the active roster.
His IL placement is backdated to September 7th, which means the earliest he can return is September 22nd and that would leave him about two weeks to ramp up for a potential postseason role.
Altogether, Treinen has made just 5 appearances this season, allowing one run over 5 innings pitched.
Andre Jackson comes back up to the big leagues for the third time this season but has yet to make an MLB appearance in 2022. Things haven’t gone all that well at Triple-A for the rookie. He’s posted a 5.00 ERA over 75.2 IP with Oklahoma City.
