Blake Treinen signs two-year, $17.5 million deal with Dodgers

RHP Blake Treinen is re-signing with the Dodgers on a two-year, $17.5 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

The deal includes an $8 million club option for 2023. The 32-year-old signed a one-year deal with the World Champs this past offseason and went on to register a 3.86 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP across 27 appearances. He'll once again function as a setup man in LA.

Blake Treinen earns the save on Sunday

Blake Treinen earned the save on Sunday when he worked a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one hit and whiffing two in the Dodgers 4-2 win over the Rays in Game 5 of the World Series.

Fantasy Impact

Treinen worked a relatively drama-free ninth inning after he gave up a leadoff single to Manuel Margot. He was able to retire the next three batters in order to pick up the save and give the Dodgers a 3-1 series lead. LA is now one win away from their first World Series title since 1988.

Blake Treinen takes the loss in Game 1 defeat on Monday

Blake Treinen took the loss on Monday when he surrendered three runs on three hits over 1/3 of an inning in the Dodgers 5-1 loss to the Braves in Game 1 of the NLCS.

Fantasy Impact

Treinen entered in the top of the ninth inning with the game tied and promptly gave up a solo blast to Austin Riley, the nine hitter, to give Atlanta a 2-1 advantage. He then surrendered a double to Ronald Acuña Jr., before getting Freddie Freeman to line out. Marcell Ozuna knocked in Acuña in the next at-bat and Treinen was replaced by Jake McGee, who gave up a two-run dinger to Ozzie Albies, which officially closed the books. Treinen had been stellar so far this postseason before Monday's meltdown, registering a 0.00 ERA over 3 1/3 innings.

Blake Treinen, Dodgers agree to one-year contract

ESPN's Jeff Passan reports the Dodgers are signing free agent reliever Blake Treinen to a one-year, $10 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Passan adds that Treinen also had offers in a similar range but wanted to go to Los Angeles. Treinen was a colossal bust in 2019 after pitching as the best reliever in baseball the season prior. He'll begin the 2020 campaign as a set-up man for the Dodgers and could eventually see save chances if Kenley Jansen misses time.

Blake Treinen non-tendered by Athletics

The A’s non-tendered reliever Blake Treinen.

Fantasy Impact

It’s a shocking move considering how dominant Treinen was just a season ago. He struggled in 2019 but it’s still surprising the A’s weren’t able to find a trade partner for him. We expect him to be a popular commodity in the free agent market moving forward. He could wind up as someone’s primary closer come 2020.
