On Tuesday the Dodgers announced the club had re-signed right-handed reliever Blake Treinen to a two-year deal. The $17.5 million contract includes a $4 million signing bonus and an $8 million club option for 2023.
We break down LA’s sneaky good deal and assess Treinen’s role in the bullpen for the upcoming 2021 season and beyond. Plus, does re-signing Blake Treinen signal that bigger moves are on the way for Andrew Friedman and the Dodgers?
Seriously though, no one saw this deal coming. No reporters. No rumors. It was an official announcement coming straight out of Los Angeles. With this unexpected move done, could the Dodgers be cooking up something else on the backburner?
Coming off a World Series and in the middle of a painfully slow winter hot stove, Dodger fans should exercise patience over these next couple months leading up to opening day. You know Andrew Friedman isn’t done.
