    Default Blake Treinen

    According to this ESPN preview, it looks like Treinen will get his first major league start against the Dodgers. No pressure or anything, he's just facing the reigning Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw.

    Also an article here from the Washington Post talking about the callup.

    Good luck Blake!

    Through 3 Treinen has gave up 3 hits and 0 runs. His pitch count is at 39 (27 strikes) so that is 13 pitches an inning which is great. 1 strikeout ; 0 walks

    Final line vs. Dodgers in Blake Treinen's first MLB start: five innings, six hits, three runs (1 ER), two strikeouts, 72 pitches, 49 strikes. He also went 1-2 at the plate. He left the game in the 5th with bases loaded because of a couple errors (1 by Treinen).

    According to espn gamecast none of the runs were earned. Also the nats only have one error through 6.

    Nats just made in error in the 7th so now they have two.

    They must have changed his line and took away an error cause when i was watching they had 2 errors and they said he had 1 earned run. The errors were by Treinen and Adam LaRoche.

    Nationals studio broadcaster Ray Knight on Treinen just now: "That is a dynamic arm. ... That is a live arm. You don't see an arm like that come along very often."

    I was at the game and listened to the Nats' radio post-game guys on the way home and they were all raving about Treinen. Going to be interesting to see what the Nats do with him and with Ross Detweiler and Ryan Matheus, a dunderhead reliever they sent down to bring Blake up today.

    Points and observations.
    - He seemed quite loose before the game. I got on a perch overlooking the bullpen and when he was long tossing in right field and when he came into the bullpen I caught his eye, pointed to my Jackrabbit cap, and said, "Blake, a lot of Rabbits are awfully proud tonight. Go get 'em." He nodded and smiled.
    - He was calm and collected early in his warmups in the pen but seemed to show his nerves a little in the pen after the National Anthem when he threw about 15 final pitches. Three or four sailed way over the catcher's head.
    - Once in the game, though, he showed absolutely no nerves in his pitching. He was a strike machine from the beginning. At the end of the fourth he had thrown 51 pitches, 34 for strikes, and the Dodgers were mostly pounding the ball weakly into the ground. At times he looked dominant.
    - Where he did look nervous, and it came back to unravel him in the sixth, was in his fielding. He almost threw away an easy toss on a comebacker a couple innings before the unraveling in the 6th. Had he cleanly fielded and thrown the comebacker to him opening in the 6th he might have left a 0-0 game to the bullpen.
    - He throws exceedingly hard with an almost effortless motion. He has the perfect pitcher's build. His upside is pretty substantial, IMHO.
    - His teammates didn't help him. The Nats got nine hits off Kershaw but a pickoff and strikeouts in key sitiuations killed potential rallies; I thought I was watching the Twins offense for a while there.
    - They took back an error from LaRouche after first giving him one, but IMHO it should have been an error. He bobbled a ball hit to him, and was going to go to second for a force and when he turned back to first, Gordon, one of the fastest men in baseball, beat Treinen to the bag. Had he fielded it cleanly the Dodgers would have had a runner on first one out, rather than first and second, none out. Then the next batter hit a bleeder after having his bat sawed off and the bases were loaded. There was not a single hard-hit ball in the inning.
    - Treinen threw 19 consecutive fastballs to start the game and got four outs. His fastball was moving that much.
    - In the sixth, when the Dodgers broke through, they did not hit a ball that hit the infield skin, much less got out of the infield, and they had the bases loaded. Then two RBI singles were just soft pops, including one in which Uribe's bat got sawed in half. Blake just got very, very unlucky, partly of his own doing. Happens in baseball.
    - Clayton Kershaw has Sandy Koufax's curveball. He made the Nats look silly at times.

    All in all, I think Blake opened more eyes tonight and is going to force the Nats' hand sooner rather than later. I stand by my prediction that he will be starting meaningful games in the heat of a pennant race in August.
