The Los Angeles Dodgers signed veteran reliever Blake Treinen to a one-year contract extension, the team announced Sunday.

The Dodgers exercised Treinen's $8-million club option for 2023 as part of the agreement, a source told Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. The club also reportedly added a conditional option for 2024 based on games missed.

Treinen has pitched in just three contests this season due to a shoulder issue and is currently on the 60-day injured list. Manager Dave Roberts said two weeks ago that Treinen isn't expected to return until after the All-Star break. However, there's a chance he won't pitch again this year, a source told Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times.

The 33-year-old has been an integral part of the Dodgers' bullpen since joining the club in 2020. Last year, Treinen posted a 1.99 ERA and 0.98 WHIP with 85 strikeouts, seven saves, and only five home runs allowed to produce his best season since his All-Star campaign in 2018.

Treinen owns a career 2.87 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across parts of nine seasons in the majors with three teams.
