Athletics' Sean Doolittle: Throws first bullpen of spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doolittle threw his first bullpen session of spring training Friday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Plagued by shoulder issues over the past two seasons, Doolittle appears to be getting back on track as spring games begin. The left-hander has shown he still has potential, posting a 3.23 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and a 45:8 K:BB ratio in 44 games last year. Barring any setbacks, expect Doolittle to compete for a setup role in the Oakland bullpen when he returns to game action.

Athletics' Sean Doolittle: Scheduled to throw off mound soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doolittle, who battled shoulder problems in each of the last two seasons and thus is being brought along slowly, will soon begin throwing off a mound, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports.

Doolittle was limited to 52.2 innings over the 2014-15 seasons due to his injuries, amassing three wins, 11 holds and eight saves over that span. That followed a 22-save effort in 2014, a level of performance that the 30-year-old southpaw hopes to attain or exceed in the coming season. It remains to be seen if Doolittle will get the opportunity to close out games, though, as manager Bob Melvin recently commented that he remains undecided about whether he'll opt to deploy just one pitcher in that role. However, Doolittle figures to thrive as a setup man if called upon, as he remains a highly effective strikeout specialist (10.38 K/9 in 2016) with solid control (1.85 BB/9) and a fastball in the mid-90s.

Athletics' Sean Doolittle: Activated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Doolittle (shoulder) was activated off the 15-day disabled list Friday, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports.

The A's reliever has been beset by injuries for much of the past two years, having made just 47 appearances since the start of the 2015 campaign. He's been effective when healthy this year, notching a 2.93 ERA with a 1.04 WHIP across 35 appearances. Ryan Madson has earned the closer's role for the rest of the season in all likelihood, so expect Doolittle to serve in a setup role the rest of the way.

Athletics' Sean Doolittle: To pitch final rehab game Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doolittle (shoulder) will pitch one last rehab game Tuesday at Triple-A Nashville before being activated by the Athletics on Friday, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Conveniently, this will allow the Athletics to wait for roster expansion before Doolittle makes his return to the big leagues. Expect him to pitch in a setup role down the stretch, but if he looks like his old self, Doolittle could easily put himself in the conversation for the closer's role in 2017.

Athletics' Sean Doolittle: Return gets delayed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doolittle (shoulder) will remain with Triple-A Nashville for another rehab outing, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.

Doolittle was originally supposed to rejoin the A's this week, but according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, he's not quite comfortable with the way the ball is coming out of his hand. The plan is now for Doolittle to rest a day or two before taking the hill once again in the minors. If he's able to tune up those mechanics, he should be able to join the team at some point during an upcoming six-game road trip.
