    • Nationals' Sean Doolittle: Grabs backdoor win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Doolittle (2-0) blew a save opportunity but still ended up collecting the win against Pittsburgh on Thursday. He allowed two runs on two hits while striking out a batter during the ninth inning. The lefty had converted 21 straight save opportunities as a National entering Thursday, so a hiccup in a meaningless game isn't a concern. After all, Doolittle rewarded fantasy owners with a win and still boasts a high-end 2.40 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 10.9 K/9 for the campaign.

    • Doolittle struck out one in a clean inning of work to earn his 24th save of the season Monday against the Phillies. Doolittle pumped in 13 of 17 pitches for strikes as he sat down the side in order. He was rested in a save opportunity in favor of Brandon Kintzler on Sunday, but this outing showed that decision was likely just to keep him fresh. The lefty has been remarkably effective of late, allowing just an unearned run in his last 11 appearances while racking up nine saves in nine chances during that span.

    • Doolittle pitched a scoreless 10th inning to collect his 23rd save of the season during Saturday's win over the Mets. Make it 20 in a row for Doollitle since joining the Nationals, and he sports an impressive 2.55 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 11.0 K/9 for the campaign. He should continue to be viewed as a high-end fantasy asset in all settings, and the lefty is probably the favorite to open the 2018 campaign as the Washington closer.

    • Nationals' Sean Doolittle: Records 22nd save Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Doolittle struck out one in a clean ninth inning to pick up his 22nd save of the season in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Braves. Doolittle needed only 12 pitches to retire three Braves hitters en route to his 21st consecutive converted save opportunity. The lefty's last blown save came all the way back on April 15 with the A's. The 30-year-old should continue to be a consistent source of saves over the final weeks of the regular season.

    • Doolittle pitched a scoreless ninth inning to collect his 21st save of the season during Thursday's win over Atlanta. Doolittle has yet to blow a save with the Nationals and sports a 2.72 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 10.9 K/9 for the campaign. He's provided elite fantasy numbers since joining Washington, and there's no reason to expect things to change moving forward.
