The offseason for the Dodgers is heating up a little bit on Tuesday night. Reliever Blake Treinen and the Los Angeles Dodgers are in agreement on a two-year deal for $17.5 million with a club option that’s worth $8 million.
Treinen rewarded the Dodgers’ faith in him, compiling a strong bounce-back season. He totaled a 3.86 ERA, 3.15 FIP, 3.47 xFIP, and 22 strikeouts in 25.2 innings. He also gave the Dodgers some priceless postseason innings, including securing the save in Game Five of the World Series.
A former seventh-round pick, the South Dakota State product broke into the majors with the Washington Nationals in 2014 before being traded to Oakland in July 2017. The next season, he saved 38 games for the A’s with an 0.78 earned-run average.
