Treinen struck out two in the ninth inning to record his 24th save of the season Saturday against the Giants. Treinen made things interesting by allowing two batters to reach base with two outs prior to closing out the game by striking out by Brandon Crawford. The effort marked his first save since July 9 -- he did blow a save chance on the 10th -- though he still ranks fourth in the American League in saves with 24. He has been superb in all regards this season, recording 59 strikeouts in 47 innings with a 0.98 WHIP and 0.96 ERA.
Treinen worked around two hits to finish a scoreless ninth for his 23rd save Monday against Houston. Treinen struck out a pair, the 16th time this year he has struck out multiple batters.

Treinen owns a 0.79 ERA and has earned his All-Star appearance with a brilliant first half.

Treinen picked up the save against the Indians on Friday, working around a hit and a walk and logging one strikeout in a scoreless ninth inning to close out a 3-1 victory for Oakland.

His 0.89 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 49:12 K:BB through 40.2 innings are All-Star-caliber, and anyone who was able to nab Treinen late on draft day is currently reaping major benefits.
