The Dodgers slowly continue their trend of good news as reports show Blake Treinen is nearing a return, yet a time table is still waiting to be determined. The hope originally was for Treinen to be activated around September 22, but unfortunately things have not gone that way.
With little time left in the regular season to properly build up arm strength, his status for the NLDS remains up in the air, but Dave Roberts is confident Treinen can be back in time. Treinen got out to 120 feet during catch play.
Other #Dodgers updates:
* Blake Treinen’s got out to 120 feet during catch play again. Roberts is still hopeful he’ll be back for DS, but his status remains uncertain
* Justin Turner is doing better. Could be back in lineup tomorrow
* Trayce Thompson is back in lineup today

Like Dustin May, Treinen is dealing with a different injury after suffering what was originally thought to be a season ending shoulder injury. Luckily, the injury recovered nicely and Treinen was back into the Dodgers lineup before going down with another shoulder injury although the team has relayed that the shoulder tightness was not related to his previous injury.
Due to his two separate injuries, Treinen has appeared in just five games this season but has posted a 1.80 ERA in five innings with six strikeouts. The hope is for the Dodgers to be able to utilize his talents while keeping a fresh rotation throughout the postseason, but patience remains the key factor if the Dodgers hope to make a deep run.
