The latest Sean Doolittle MLB and fantasy baseball news

From -- thru  --


Athletics | Sean Doolittle is a work in progress

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:42:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) is still a work in progress, as he works his way back from a shoulder injury, according to manager Bob Melvin. Melvin did not rule out Doolittle returning to the closer role this season, though.

Fantasy Tip: Doolittle was roughed up by the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, Aug. 23, and he blew a save opportunity. It would be foolish to write him off after a single appearance, but you'll want to keep tabs on his next few outings. There is plenty of upside, but Doolittle doesn't warrant a long leash at this stage of the season.

Athletics | Rough return for Sean Doolittle

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 19:57:40 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle recorded just two outs and allowed two runs on one hit and walked two against the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, Aug. 23, in his first game since May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Doolittle is worth stashing if you have the room and need saves, but he isn't a lock to reclaim the closer role this season.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle close to returning

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 16:31:21 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) is close to returning from the disabled list, according to manager Bob Melvin.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably unrealistic to expect Doolittle to immediately return to closing duties for the A's, but he could at least share part of the ninth-inning job before the season is over. Drew Pomeranz closed out Oakland's win Wednesday, so he and Doolittle could both be worth owning in fantasy leagues. Edward Mujica is losing ground in the backend of this bullpen.

Athletics | Sean Doolttle is finding his form

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:16:13 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) has struck out the side in consecutive rehab outings with Class AAA Nashville.

Fantasy Tip: Doolittle is expected to rejoin the Oakland bullpen Monday, Aug. 24, and he will likely slide back into the closer role. He is worth owning in all seasonal leagues, and Doolittle could provide a huge boost in the save category down the stretch. Continue to check back for updates on his status and for news on when he'll rejoin the Athletics. Edward Mujica's window for fantasy value is closing quickly.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle's updated timeline

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 14:40:25 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) will pitch two more rehab outings, and is likely to rejoin the team during their upcoming road trip, which begins Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Doolittle has only pitched a single inning all season, but he will likely have a good shot at returning to the closer role once healthy and back with the club. He is worth owning in all formats, especially since he projects to be back soon.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle could return next week

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 09:14:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) will make another rehab outing for Class AAA Nashville Friday, Aug. 14, and he could return from the disabled list next week.

Fantasy Tip: Doolittle will likely be eased back into a late-inning relief role when he returns, but he could eventually usurp Edward Mujica for the ninth-inning duties if he proves fully healthy and effective. It wouldn't be a bad idea to stash Doolittle now in deeper leagues if you're still searching for some saves.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle's velocity up

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 14:26:15 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle's (shoulder) fastball hit 92 mph in his rehab outing Tuesday, Aug. 10, according to manager Bob Melvin. That is up from 88-89 mph the last time Doolittle attempted to come back. He is set for another rehab outing Friday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Doolittle could be nearing a return to the major leagues. It's unclear what role he'll fill in the bullpen initially, and the A's could choose to ease him back in. However, he could be a threat to the closer role before the season is over. Stash him now in deeper leagues if you're still searching for saves or if you own Edward Mujica.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle to go on rehab assignment

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:29:45 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) will go on a rehab assignment this weekend if he comes out of his throwing session without any setbacks Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking more and more like Doolittle could contribute to Oakland's bullpen again this season. And with Tyler Clippard out of the bullpen picture, it's conceivable that Doolittle could enter the saves picture and take ninth-inning duties away from Edward Mujica is he proves he's fully healthy. Stash Doolittle now if you're desperate for saves.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle scheduled for sim game

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:53:57 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) said he will throw a simulated game Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Doolittle has only pitched a single inning this season, but he could return to the vacated closer role before the end of the year. Continue to monitor his recovery and check back for updates. He is worth stashing in all formats if you have the room, but especially if you're chasing saves.
