Dodgers News: Los Angeles Inks Blake Treinen to One-Year Deal



The Dodgers offseason moves look like they are finally rolling out. After missing out on Gerrit Cole Tuesday, Los Angeles signed reliever Blake Treinen to a one-year deal.

Treinen is just a season removed from receiving Cy Young votes in Oakland back in 2018. It was then that he posted a ridiculous 0.78 ERA across 68 appearances en route to an All-Star game nomination. Treinen locked down 38 saves for the A’s that year.

The numbers are still not crystal clear, but it is being reported that the deal is worth $10 million. Not bad considering the Giants just signed Kevin Gausman to a one-year, $9 million contract.

As discussed on out podcast earlier this month, there may not have ever been a more Andrew Friedman type of guy than Blake Treinen. He had a down year in 2019, leading to Oakland non-tendering him rather than choosing to pay him in 2020.

More on the story as it continues to develop.
