Treinen was the Nationals' first choice to close, but he absorbed a 7.11 ERA and a 2.53 WHIP through his first eight games and then spent several months in irrelevant fantasy roles until Washington shipped him to the Athletics. For his new club, he rattled off a 2.13 ERA with 42 strikeouts in 38 innings while converting 13 of 16 save chances. At season's end, he'd increased his swinging-strike rate from 10.5 percent in 2016 to 13.1 percent His sinker, emerging plus-slider and serviceable four-seam fastball gained velocity befitting a stopper. The right-hander should be ready for spring training following October surgery to remove a cyst from his middle pitching finger. It's safe to wonder whether that was hindering his grip last season, considering his elite groundball rate dipped to a still awesome 58.4 percent.

  2. Blake Treinen 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Treinen developed into a true late-inning arm in 2016 after an up-and-down performance in his first two years in the league, leading the Nationals' bullpen with 67 innings while posting a 2.28 ERA. His main step forward was that he was simply adequate against left-handers, yielding a league-average .737 OPS to lefties in 2016 compared to an awful .934 in 2015. Treinen is a classic sinker-slider type of pitcher, with both pitches coming in extremely hard. He tops out at around 97 mph, but that hasn't translated into elite strikeout numbers yet (he posted an above-average 24 percent strikeout rate last season). Instead, he lives on the ground, having improved his groundball rate in every season of his MLB career. His 65.9 percent mark was second to only Zach Britton among pitchers with at least 60 innings in 2016. Treinen is likely to again fill a setup role in 2017 alongside Shawn Kelley and Sammy Solis.
  3. Blake Treinen 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Expected to step into Tyler Clippard's set-up role after the veteran right-hander was traded in the offseason, Treinen struggled to harness his nasty 96 mph sinker in his first full season as a reliever, bouncing between the majors and Triple-A and posting fairly mediocre numbers overall with the Nationals. His main difficulty came against left-handed hitters, who raked him for a .336/.425/.509 slash line and 21:17 K:BB ratio, and until he can find a way to counter them, he'll have trouble providing consistent help out of the bullpen. The Nationals currently have Jonathan Papelbon and Drew Storen filling late-inning roles, although given the volatile way each of their seasons ended, either or both could be in other uniforms before GM Mike Rizzo is done this winter. Depending on what happens around him, Treinen could head into 2016 as staff filler with upside or as someone once again counted on to fill a role he hasn't proven he's ready for yet.
  4. Blake Treinen 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Treinen made a strong impression on the Nationals' coaching staff last spring when he fired a sinking fastball that was regularly clocked in the 95-98 mph range when used as a reliever. Moved back into the rotation at Triple-A and then used as a swingman during his various brief stints in the majors, the 26-year-old did enough to put himself in contention for a regular spot on the Nationals' staff in 2015, posting a superb 0.34 HR/9 rate in 131.1 innings across both levels. Given the organization's rotation depth and the way his sinker plays up in relief, he's likely ticketed for the bullpen long-term. If he sharpens his slider and changeup, he could yet prove he deserves a shot at the rotation.
