Manager Dave Roberts said Monday after the Dodgers' 7-4 win over Atlanta that Treinen won't be available for the final two games of the series due to an arm issue according Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic.
Roberts noted that Treinen's arm was "barking" after his appearance in the Dodgers' home opener last Thursday, which is why the reliever hasn't been used since. Fortunately, he revealed that Treinen felt fine while playing catch Monday and is on track to avoid the injured list, but the Dodgers will play it safe by keeping him out a few more days.
“Blake’s arm was just kind of barking after his last outing. So for us, with where we’re at and how valuable he is, we just felt give him three, four, five days off,” Roberts revealed after the Dodgers’ 7-4 win over the Braves.
“He played catch (Monday) and felt good, but we’re in no rush to get him back.”
Treinen is expected to be ready to go when the Dodgers open a three-game series in San Diego on Friday.
