Treinen earned a hold against Colorado on Saturday, pitching a perfect inning during which he struck out one batter. The right-hander breezed through a scoreless frame to set up the save for closer Kenley Jansen. Treinen retired the side on only eight pitches, seven of which were strikes. He leads MLB with 22 holds on the season and has already tied his single-season career high set back in 2016 with Washington.
Treinen (2-4) took the loss Tuesday against the Marlins after allowing one run (unearned) with no hits or walks while striking out one. Treinen finished the final out of the ninth inning during a 1-1 tie and re-entered in the 10th. Unfortunately a wild pitch allowed the extra-inning baserunner, Starling Marte, to eventually score after a throwing error by catcher Will Smith at third base. It was a messy ending to the game during an otherwise strong outing by Treinen. The right-hander has pitched well in the setup role this season, compiling a 2.86 ERA and 1.13 WHIP while finding himself in a three-way tie for the most holds in the league with 17 overall.

Treinen holds a 3.03 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 38:10 K:BB across 32.2 innings this season.
Treinen (2-3) pitched 1.2 scoreless innings Friday against the Cubs. He allowed one hit and struck out two as he picked up his second win of the year. Treinen entered with two men on and one out in the seventh and allowed the Cubs to tie up the game on a sacrifice fly by Joc Pederson. The 32-year-old then allowed Javier Baez to lead off the eighth with a single but struck out Anthony Rizzo and Willson Contreras before getting Eric Sogard to line out to end the inning. Treinen has bounced back nicely after showing some signs of regression over the last two seasons. He owns a 3.23 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 36:9 K:BB as one of the top arms in the Dodgers' bullpen.
Treinen (1-3) took the loss in a 5-3 defeat at the hands of San Diego, allowing two runs on two hits with a strikeout in one inning Wednesday. Treinen took over for starter Trevor Bauer in the seventh and retired three straight Padres but encountered trouble when he came back out for the eighth and allowed two hits before being removed. Victor Gonzalez entered and allowed both inherited runners to score, which gave Treinen the loss. The earned runs snapped a five-inning scoreless stretch for Treinen that included five strikeouts with only two baserunners allowed. The veteran righty carries a 3.41 ERA and 1.21 WHIP for the season.
