Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Team option picked up
The Dodgers exercised Treinen's (shoulder) team option for 2024 on Sunday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Treinen was forced to miss the 2023 campaign after undergoing shoulder surgery in November of 2022, but he'll remain with the club for the 2024 season following Sunday's move. His rehab assignment was paused in early September after he experienced soreness in his shoulder, and it's unclear whether he'll be back to full health in time for spring training next year....

Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Rehab assignment paused
Treinen's rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City has been paused after he felt soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder after his last appearance Tuesday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Treinen was roughed up for three runs while recording just one out in the outing. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts had already referred to Treinen as a "long shot" to return this season even before this setback, so this might cinch it. Treinen had surgery in November of 2022 to repair the labrum and rotator cuff in his right shoulder.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Doubtful to return this year
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that Treinen (shoulder) remains a "long shot" to pitch in the majors this year, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Treinen made his minor-league rehab debut with a 1-2-3 inning Tuesday in the Arizona Complex League and will now move on to Triple-A Oklahoma City, but it sounds like the Dodgers have no intention of rushing him back. Granted, there are still five-and-a-half weeks left in the 2023 regular season and the outlook could change if he continues to pitch well on the farm. The veteran reliever required surgery in November of 2022 to repair the labrum and rotator cuff in his right shoulder.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Begins rehab assignment
Treinen (shoulder) began a rehab assignment Tuesday in the Arizona Complex League, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Treinen has been sidelined all year following offseason shoulder surgery, but he's on the right track now with a return to live appearances in the ACL. In his rehab debut Tuesday, he retired the side in order on two strikeouts and a flyout. The veteran reliever could become an option for the Dodgers' bullpen sometime around early-to-mid September if he continues to prove his health and effectiveness on the farm.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Throws simulated game
Treinen (shoulder) threw a one-inning simulated game Wednesday at the Dodgers' spring training complex in Arizona, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Treinen had touched only 86-87 mph during recent bullpen session, but he hit 94 mph during Wednesday's session after making some delivery tweaks. "Blake was 100th percentile," manager Dave Roberts said. "It was a lot more than we anticipated." Treinen has multiple hoops he still needs to jump through as he works his way back from last November's shoulder surgery, but he and the club are hopeful that he can rejoin the bullpen sometime in September....

Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Cleared to start throwing program
Treinen (shoulder) has been cleared to begin a throwing program Monday.
He'll play catch for the first time since undergoing right shoulder surgery in November. Treinen is hoping to make it back at some point late this season, but he could very well be out until 2024.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Lands on 60-day IL
Treinen was placed on the 60-day injured list by the Dodgers on Thursday as he recovers from right labrum and rotator cuff surgery.
The move frees up a 40-man roster spot. Treinen is hoping to make it back late in the 2023 season after going under the knife in November, but there's a good chance he'll be out until 2024.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Aiming to pitch this season
Treinen (shoulder) told Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic on Wednesday that he wants to pitch this season.
Treinen made only six total appearances between the regular season and postseason last year and then required surgery in November to repair the labrum and rotator cuff in his right shoulder. He's said to be progressing well, but the veteran reliever still has several more months of rest and rehab ahead. If he does become an option for the Dodgers in 2023, it probably won't be until late August or September.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Likely to miss 2023 season
Treinen underwent surgery on his right shoulder labrum and rotator cuff Friday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Treinen fought through multiple shoulder injuries in 2022 and underwent surgery in order to manage the lingering pain. The Dodgers didn't provide an immediate timetable for his return, but considering the rehab process typically takes around 10 months for this surgery, it is reasonable to think Treinen will miss the entire 2023 campaign....

Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Cleared to return
Treinen (shoulder) will be on the Dodgers' NLDS roster.
Treinen made just three appearances in April before suffering a shoulder injury, and he returned for just two more in early September before returning to the injured list. The Dodgers evidently feel comfortable with his health, though whether or not he's considered ready for a high-leverage role is unclear.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Expected to be on NLDS roster
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts expects Treinen (shoulder) to make the NLDS roster, though the right-hander's role and availability are yet to be determined, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Treinen hasn't pitched in a game for over a month, so it may be too much to expect him to immediately pitch in high-leverage situations or on back-to-back days. The veteran reliever has thrown only five innings all season, giving up one run and posting a 6:1 K:BB. Treinen is a critical piece of Los Angeles' bullpen when healthy, so it would be a major boost to the team's title chances if he's able to work his way back into shape over a potential deep playoff run. He faced three batters in a simulated game Wednesday and will toss another sim game in the next few days, per Matthew Moreno of DodgerBlue.com.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Set to face hitters
Manager Dave Roberts said Treinen (shoulder) is scheduled to throw to batters Wednesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
The 34-year-old returned to mound work over the weekend and is now poised to face hitters a few days later. According to Roberts, Treinen could be included on the roster for the NLDS next week if the righty's rehab continues to progress smoothly.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Bullpen session set
Treinen (shoulder) played catch off a mound Sunday and is slated to threw a full bullpen session Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Treinen returned from the injured list in early September but went back to the injured list after only two outings, and he's beginning to ramp up his throwing program. It remains to be seen if the veteran right-hander will have enough time to be game ready for the start of the NLDS on Oct. 11.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Moving toward mound work
Treinen (shoulder) played catch Friday and manager Dave Roberts said he's getting closer to throwing off a mound again, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
There is still no word on how soon Treinen will be able to return, but chances are that he will miss at least the beginning of the postseason. He's been sidelined with shoulder issues for the vast majority of the season and hasn't made an appearance since the beginning of September.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Resumes throwing
Treinen (shoulder) began throwing again Tuesday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Progress has been slow in Treinen's recovery, and a temporarily shutdown last Thursday delayed matters further. Treinen said he's feeling better now -- resuming throwing is certainly a good sign -- but he doesn't know if he'll be able to begin the playoffs on the Dodgers' postseason roster.... See More ...

Dodgers' Blake Treinen: Remains shut down
Treinen (shoulder) did not resume throwing Saturday as expected, but the Dodgers are hoping he can start throwing again soon, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Manager Dave Roberts said earlier in the day that there's only a "small chance" Treinen is activated before the end of the regular season. However, if Treinen is cleared to pick up a baseball soon, he could still make the NLDS roster. Shoulder trouble has limited Treinen to just a handful of appearances this season after he led the team in appearances with 72 a season ago.... See More ... See Less
