The Dodgers have a lot of work to do with getting their pitching staff back to full health. It seems like almost every day there is an arm that has an issue at this point. Luckily, Los Angeles’ staff is deeper than it has been in quite some time. That has allowed them to get by over this tough stretch of games.
Ahead of the doubleheader on Tuesday, the Dodgers made a few different moves. That included shifting Blake Treinen over to the 60-day injured list. Treinen has been on the shelf since April 14th with shoulder discomfort. They did not officially place him on the injured list until the 22nd.
The 60-day designation means that he will not be eligible to return until some time in mid-June. The Dodgers have already said that while they do expect him to be back this season, they don’t expect to have him available until after the All-Star break.
But the Dodgers will absolutely need him healthy for a postseason run. Treinen was supposed to be one of the main anchors out there in the bullpen, and not having him has hurt at different points in this season. Ideally, Tommy Kahnle, Treinen, and Craig Kimbrel will be finish out games in October.
