Nationals | Blake Treinen logs first career save

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 17:16:02 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Blake Treinen logged his first career save Wednesday, July 27, versus the Cleveland Indians. He faced two batters in the ninth inning and retired both of them to complete the victory.

Fantasy Tip: Jonathan Papelbon had the day off after blowing his last two save opportunities, so owners shouldn't react to this development, especially since Treinen didn't even begin the ninth to convert the save. The hard-throwing Treinen certainly has potential to close one day, but for now, Papelbon is still settled in the role in D.C.

Nationals | Shawn Kelley could serve as setup man

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 12:29:57 -0800

Washington Nationals RP Shawn Kelley is likely to move into the setup role vacated by Drew Storen after he was dealt to the Toronto Blue Jays, according to general manager Mike Rizzo. He also mentioned RPs Trevor Gott, Felipe Rivero and Blake Treinen as other pitchers who could vie for the eighth-inning job.

Fantasy Tip: Kelley should be of interest to fantasy owners who participate in leagues that use the holds category and he could see an occasional save opportunity on days when Jonathan Papelbon is unavailable. He went 2-2 with a 2.45 ERA in 53 games for San Diego last season, with 63 strikeouts over 51 1/3 innings, and should be targeted in the later rounds of NL-only leagues.

Nationals | Rafael Soriano hopes to make playoff roster

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 16:15:32 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Rafael Soriano will have his playoff fate decided in the next 10 days after RP Drew Storen has locked down the closer's role. Soriano is feeling more comfortable with his setup role and said he'd be ready for the playoffs after a few more games. Soriano preserved a four-run lead with a perfect ninth inning Thursday, Sept. 18. The team's final relief spot for the postseason will likely come down to Soriano and RPs Jerry Blevins, Xavier Cedeno and Blake Treinen. Manager Matt Williams still believes in Soriano.
