Injury Notes: Treinen, Nelson, Severino, Britton

The Dodgers had been with out reliever Blake Treinen for far of the season, as shoulder problems have stored him at the injured record. The right-hander was once out of motion between mid-April and early September, and his go back to the lively roster this month lasted simply two appearances. Treinen went again at the IL with shoulder tightness on a placement retroactive to September 7. While he’ll be eligible to go back from that stint day after today, supervisor Dave Roberts knowledgeable newshounds Treinen’s shoulder hasn’t answered to a Monday bullpen consultation as was hoping (by means of David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports and J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group).

Roberts indicated there’s some worry Treinen is probably not to be had in time for the postseason, which kicks off simply over two weeks from now. Los Angeles is veritably going to get a bye previous the first-round Wild Card collection, which is able to find the money for Treinen a little bit extra time to check out to paintings his long ago. If they might get the 34-year-old again within the fold, it’d move far in opposition to bettering their playoff bullpen. While he’s been restricted to simply 5 appearances this 12 months, Treinen was once one of the crucial recreation’s best possible late-game guns a season in the past. He labored to a 1.99 ERA with a 29.7% strikeout charge whilst inducing grounders on over part the batted balls he allowed via 72 1/3 frames in 2021.

Some different damage notes from across the sport:

  • The Diamondbacks positioned rookie starter Ryne Nelson at the 15-day injured record this afternoon, recalling southpaw Tyler Holton from Triple-A Reno in his position. The right-hander is coping with scapula irritation that’ll finish his season a couple of weeks early. Manager Torey Lovullo didn’t sound particularly concerned with the problem long-term, telling newshounds (together with Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic) the membership was once continuing with an far more than warning with the season winding down. Lovullo indicated Nelson will have to be within the combine for a place in subsequent 12 months’s season-opening rotation, infrequently a marvel given his prospect pedigree. Baseball America’s #96 general farmhand coming into the 2022 marketing campaign, Nelson struggled with the longball in a hitter-friendly Triple-A surroundings however inspired in his first 3 giant league begins. He allowed handiest 4 runs (3 earned) with 16 strikeouts and 6 walks in 18 1/3 innings to kick off his MLB profession.
  • The Yankees reinstated Luis Severino from the 60-day injured record this afternoon, as anticipated. New York already had a emptiness at the 40-man roster, they usually optioned Miguel Andújar to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to open a place at the lively roster. Severino, who neglected two months after struggling a lat pressure in mid-June, returned with 5 innings of one-run ball in a win over the Pirates. The righty tossed 64 pitches and figures to steadily construct his pitch rely with every get started in preparation for a possible function within the playoff rotation. New York could also be prone to quickly welcome again reliever Zack Britton, who hasn’t thrown an MLB pitch since present process a UCL restore ultimate September. Joel Sherman of the New York Post was once amongst the ones to relay that Britton has reported to the foremost league membership after making 8 appearances on a rehab stint. While he’s now not but been officially reinstated from the 60-day injured record, that turns out prone to happen within the coming days.
