Nationals' Blake Treinen: Will compete for closer spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen will be in the mix for the Nationals' closing job in spring training, The Washington Post reports.

Nats manager Dusty Baker may prefer to give the spot to someone with more experience, but Treinen improved his numbers against left-handed hitters in 2016 while also looking sharp in high-leverage situations, holding opponents to a tiny .128/.261/.154 line. The 28-year-old should have a prominent late-inning role whether he closes or not, though, making him a safer pick in fantasy formats that use saves plus holds as a category rather than just pure saves.

Nationals' Blake Treinen: Could be closing option in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen could head into spring training as the favorite for the Nationals' closer job if they aren't able to bring in an established option this offseason, The Washington Post reports.

Experienced closers like Kenley Jansen and Greg Holland are still available as free agents, but if GM Mike Rizzo doesn't bring in anyone from outside the organization, Treinen would be among the top options for ninth-inning duties along with Koda Glover, Shawn Kelley and Sammy Solis. Treinen's never has a K/9 rate over 9.0 in his brief MLB career, so he wouldn't be a typical choice, but he posted a career-best ERA and WHIP in 2016 and his heavy mid-90s sinker can generate plenty of ground balls, much as Mark Melancon's cutter did for the Nats at the end of last season.

Nationals' Blake Treinen: Strikes out three in Saturday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Treinen allowed one hit and struck out three in 1.2 innings during Saturday's loss to the Reds.

That's now nine straight scoreless appearances for Treinen, who has a strong 2.70 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 25:10 K:BB in 23.1 innings this season. He doesn't get used in particularly high-leverage situations, however, and with no saves and only five holds, his fantasy value is somewhat limited. If injuries or trades were to shake up the Nats' bullpen, Treinen might end up being the biggest beneficiary.

Nationals' Blake Treinen: Fans two in scoreless inning Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blake Treinen struck out two and walked one in a scoreless ninth inning against the Royals on Wednesday.

It wasn't exactly a high-leverage situation, as the Nats were up 13-2 at the time, but the outing still dropped Treinen's ERA to 3.27. He also has five holds to go along with a 1.27 WHIP and 12:6 K:BB in 11 innings, but Dusty Baker seems to be using him more as a short-relief jack-of-all-trades than a consistent setup man, so Treinen may not be able to keep up that pace in holds even if he continues pitching well.

Nationals' Blake Treinen: Picks up win Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blake Treinen (1-0) worked a scoreless ninth inning Monday, walking one and striking out one, to pick up the victory in an extra-inning win over the Braves.

The Washington Nationals ' presumed setup men, Shawn Kelley and Felipe Rivero, both struggled Monday, with Kelley looking especially bad. It's too early to anticipate a shake-up in the bullpen pecking order, but if Treinen continues to be effective he could work his way into more high-leverage situations.
