Nationals call up Abel de Los Santos, option Blake Treinen


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2015) The Nationals selected the contract of RHP Abel de los Santos from Double-A Harrisburg, the team announced on Monday. 

De Los Santos was 4-4 with six saves and a 2.65 ERA at Harrisburg. 

He replaces RHP Blake Treinen, optioned to Triple-A Syracuse. He was 2-2 with a 4.39 ERA with the Nats.

To make room on the 40-man roster, outfielder Jayson Werth was moved to the 60-day disabled list. 


Nats' Blake Treinen getting on track thanks to better pitch location


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Nationals reliever Blake Treinen appears to be putting his early season struggles behind him. After opening the season with a 6.00 ERA in his first 11 outings, Treinen has allowed just one run in his last five outings, lowering his ERA to 3.68.

Treinen also has 11 strikeouts in his last 10 innings, including a six-strikeout performance during a four-inning outing May 14 at San Diego.

"It's just being able to put the pitch where I want to, simplifying, not trying to make the best pitch, but make the pitch that's called and just execute location on it," Treinen said, per MASNsports.com. "The last couple of outings for me have been good evidence that it's working."


Nationals RHP gives taxed bullpen a rest on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) Nationals right-handed reliever Blake Treinen was just what the doctor ordered for manager Matt Williams on Friday. When starter Doug Fister was lifted after pitching just two innings against the Padres, Treinen came on and gave the Nationals threw 57 pitches over four innings, allowing three hits (including a solo home run) and struck out six along the way. 

Treinen hadn't pitched in three days, but he was happy just to play his role.

“Every pitcher on the staff would take pride in doing their job and my job [Thursday] was to go out and get as many innings as we could,” he said, per The Washington Post. “Am I glad that we’re a couple arms fresher now? Absolutely. But it still sucks losing.”

The bullpen had been taxed pretty heavily over the last few days, so Trienen's effort allowed Williams to rest his tired arms.

“We still have two lefties that will be fresh [Friday] and all of the right-handers with the exception of Blake so I think we’re okay,” Williams said.


Blake Treinen earns win in relief for Nationals


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Blake Treinen earned his first win of the season, over Atlanta on Tuesday. 

Treinen entered the game to start the seventh. He pitched two innings, allowing a run on two hits and three walks. The Nationals made him a winner by rallying for three in the ninth. 

Treinen improved to 1-2 with a 4.22 ERA. 


Nationals RHP Blake Treinen adjusting to high-leverage situations


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Nationals right-hander Blake Treinen was summoned in the eighth inning of Wednesday's game against the Mets, followed by Drew Storen in the ninth to close out a 2-1 victory.

With Tyler Clippard traded to Oakland in the offseason, the Nationals were left without a clear right-handed option as a setup man to start the season. Manager Matt Williams indicated that his plan was to use Treinen coming into the game, per MLB.com. Treinen entered in the eighth and tossed a scoreless frame to help secure the win for Washington.

It was Treinen's 16th career big-league appearance, and he revealed he revealed he'll need to get adjusted to working more high-leverage situations.

"Even last year in the bullpen, I didn't really come in for one-run leads," Treinen said. "So its still new, but I enjoyed it.

"It's something I'll get adjusted to. I don't think it bothers me. I enjoy those moments."


Nationals' Blake Treinen may break camp as a reliever


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Because the rotation is set with Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, Max Scherzer, Doug Fister and Gio Gonzalez, Nationals manager Matt Williams has not closed the door on the possibility of Blake Treinen making the team as a reliever, according to MLB.com.

Treinen has made eight appearances as a reliever, allowing only two runs in 14 2/3 innings. The right-hander said he's fine with whatever role Williams gives him once they break camp.

"It's always fun to have opportunities to save a game -- coming in big situations. It's spring and everybody is trying to work on stuff. It's still early, but it's still fun of course."


Blake Treinen clobbered Thursday by Mets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) Nationals right-hander Blake Treinen had been pitching well leading up Thursday - but he certainly took a pounding by the visiting Mets.

Treinen allowed four runs on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings and was saved from a loss only by a Washington comeback. He walked one and struck out one. The big blow was a two-run double by Daniel Murphy in the fifth inning.


Nationals set end-of-season rotation plans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) The Nationals announced the team's rotation plans after Wednesday's game was rained out.

Blake Treinen will pitch the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets followed by Gio Gonzalez, who was scheduled to pitch Wednesday. On Friday, Doug Fister and Taylor Hill, who will be called up before the game, will pitch during the Nationals' second doubleheader in two days. Stephen Strasburg remains the probable starter for Saturday, while Jordan Zimmermann is scheduled to pitch the season finale Sunday after having his previously scheduled start pushed back due to a shoulder issue.


Blake Treinen tosses five scoreless innings vs. Braves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Nationals pitcher Blake Treinen didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, giving up three hits and one walk in five scoreless innings while striking out three in his team's 3-1 defeat against the Braves.

Treinen left with his team up 1-0 but watched the bullpen immediately blow the lead and fall behind in the sixth inning. He's given up a total of eight earned runs in 31 2/3 innings over his six starts, with his most recent start before Wednesday coming back in late June. Including his relief appearances, he's up to eight scoreless innings in September. Treinen owns a 1.94 ERA and 29:12 K:BB ratio in 46 1/3 innings. He's not yet scheduled for another start.


Blake Treinen in, Gio Gonzalez out as Wednesday starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) The clinching of a division title Tuesday night could result in sweeping changes in the Nationals lineup Wednesday in Atlanta. Starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez has already been scratched in favor of Blake Treinen.

Treinen started five games in May and June with great success. He yielded just eight runs in 26 2/3 innings and owns a 2.35 ERA on the year despite a 1-3 record.

Blake Treinen called up for Nationals Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The Nationals have recalled pitcher Blake Treinen from Triple-A Syracuse to fill the vacant spot on their active roster Thursday.

Treinen has a 2.29 ERA in 35 1/3 innings for the Nationals this season, but might not be long for the team, with Asdrubal Cabrera expected to join the team Friday.  


Blake Treinen gets first win in spot start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Nationals pitcher Blake Treinen pitched well Saturday, as he took down the Cubs 7-2 for his first career win.

Treinen tossed five innings, but was pitching well enough to go deeper if not for a 55-minute rain delay. He was charged with two runs on four hits and a walk over his five innings, while striking out three batters and throwing 54 of 78 pitches for strikes.

Treinen had been 0-3 in his first eight appearances prior to Saturday's game, despite having a 2.29 ERA overall. He was optioned back to Triple-A Syracuse after the start. 


Blake Treinen called up for Saturday start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Nationals pitcher Blake Treinen has been called up for Saturday's start against the Cubs.

The move was expected as Treinen was named the team's starter a few days ago. Treinen has a 2.08 ERA over 30 1/3 innings in the majors. 


Blake Treinen expected to start Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Nationals pitcher Blake Treinen is expected to start one of the team's games Saturday, according to MLB.com.

The club has a double-header against the Cubs, and will call up Treinen for the start. He's posted a 2.08 ERA over 30 1/3 innings in the majors this year. 


Nationals recall Xavier Cedeno, send down Blake Treinen


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Blake Treinen drops to 0-3 Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Nationals pitcher Blake Treinen pitched well but was unable to pick up his first win of the season Thursday afternoon against the Giants in San Francisco, dropping to 0-3 in his team's 7-1 defeat. The right-hander permitted two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two in five innings of work.

Over his last two starts covering 11 innings, Treinen has permitted four earned runs. He will likely return to the bullpen moving forward. He owns a 2.08 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP in 30 1/3 innings.

Blake Treinen gets through six in return to rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) The Nationals took it easy on Blake Treinen in his return to the rotation, though he still pitched efficiently enough to finish six innings in a no-decision against the Padres.

Treinen needed just 63 pitches to get through six solid innings, as he let the defense do much of the work behind him. He struck out just one batter and walked none, while throwing 42 of 63 pitches for strikes in the outing. Treinen allowed two runs on five hits in his six innings of work, and was in line for the first win of his career before a blown save by Rafael Soriano.

Treinen made his return to the rotation after pitching just two total innings since May 22, so it makes sense that his workload was limited. He has a 1.78 ERA in 25 1/3 innings of work on the season and should make his net start Thursday against the Giants. 


Blake Treinen set to return to rotation Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Nationals pitcher Blake Treinen prepared for his return to the rotation Tuesday, as he tossed a simulated game Tuesday.

Treinen threw 45 pitches over three simulated innings according to the Washington Post, in an attempt to get him back up to speed after some time off in the bullpen. Treinen will make his next start Saturday against the Padres, and it could be his last, if Gio Gonzalez is ready to return from the disabled list for his next turn.


Blake Treinen available in bullpen until Monday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Treinen, who was pulled out of the rotation after his scheduled start Tuesday was rained out, has not pitched since May 22 at this point. If he is not needed over the next four days, manager Matt Williams said he will try to get him a bullpen session or simulated game so Treinen can return to the rotation.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Treinen dropped to 0-2 on the year in his first start since May 6. He owns a 1.56 ERA, a .67 WHIP in 17 1/3 innings. If he remains in the rotation, he'll make his next start Tuesday at home against Miami.
