The Los Angeles Dodgers have re-signed Blake Treinen, taking the steady relief pitcher off of the free agency market. Treinen is signing a two-year contract worth $17.5, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan. The 32-year-old reliever also has a third-year club option worth $8 million attached to the contract.
Treinen joined the Los Angeles Dodgers this past season after losing his job as the closer with the Oakland Athletics in 2019. The 32-year-old battled injuries in his final season with the A’s but he bounced back in 2020. Treinen became a stalwart in the Dodgers’ bullpen, posting an ERA of 3.86 with a WHIP of 1.21. He also recorded 22 strikeouts, eight walks, one save, and nine holds in 25.2 innings pitched.
Blake Treinen came up in the Oakland Athletics system, where he spent two seasons before being traded to the Washington Nationals in 2013. He spent four years with the Nationals and was traded back to the Athletics in 2017.
