Chris Bassitt has been moved to the bullpen to make up for the loss.
Treinen, 31, was one in all MLB’s greatest closers in 2018 recording 38 saves in 43 alternatives whereas placing out 100 batters in 80 1/three innings.
However in 2019 he has been derailed by dangerous efficiency and accidents. He went on the IL in June with a rotator cuff pressure and has been out for the higher a part of the final week with the present again situation.
He has posted a 6-5 file with a 4.91 ERA with 16 saves in 21 appearances and was changed by Liam Hendriks as Oakland’s nearer halfway by way of the season.
Whereas Hendricks has been stellar and is able to make up for Treinen’s absence, the righty will definitely be missed down the stretch.
