Treinen […]

Dusty Baker: Bullpen hero Blake Treinen is ‘becoming a man’

The Braves had a man at every base with only one out, and veteran Jeff Francoeur hovered at the plate in the eighth inning of the Nationals’ 2-1 win over the Braves Tuesday night. The game was still scoreless, so if right-handed reliever Blake Treinen allowed even one of those runs to score, the Nationals might have lost because of it. Jose Lobaton went […]

Blake Treinen is working on command, especially against left-handers

VIERA, Fla. — Blake Treinen started Wednesday’s game as a spot starter because of Bronson Arroyo’s shoulder injury. He tossed two innings, struck out four, allowed one hit and walked one. After being held out of games for a week and a half for a minor finger issue, Treinen looked strong. And his slider, a pitch […]

Blake Treinen hones his change-up to better combat lefties

JUPITER, Fla. — Neither Blake Treinen nor his manager, Dusty Baker, will say for sure whether Treinen will start or relieve for the Nationals this season. He started Sunday’s 5-2 win against the Cardinals, and threw two innings like the other starters have before him. But Baker said Saturday that scheduling pitchers can be as much […]

VIERA, Fla. (AP) Washington Nationals reliever Blake Treinen wasn't sure what to make of his new-found fame on Thursday, a day after he was the subject of a question on ''Jeopardy!'' under the category of ''hard-throwing pitchers.''

Waiting On the Next Zach Britton

Two years back, after Zach Britton emerged as an effective closer for the Orioles, he drew a lot of attention for his sinker. At the time, I used PITCHf/x information to try to find some similar sinkers. For the most part it was a forgettable post — most of these are forgettable posts — but there was one thing that stuck with me. One name I haven’t been able to wipe from my...

It gets worse

Blake Treinen and the Nats made a mess of things in the 7th Red Sox 8, Nationals 7: 7-5 lead turns into 8-7 deficit in nightmare 7th courtesy of three errors, two HBP and an RBI groundout. Hard to believe that after Monday's Fenway Park debacle, which Matt Williams declared to be "As bad as you can get", it could get worse for the Nationals. But on Tuesday night, it...
