    • Doolittle recorded a strikeout in a 1-2-3 inning to earn his 24th save of the season Sunday against the Braves. Doolittle had allowed runs in each of his previous two outings, but he mowed down the side in order while throwing eight of 11 strikes in this one. The veteran hadn't looked quite himself in his first few outings since returning from a long layoff, but he appears to be rounding into form and could provide some fantasy utility down the stretch for those in need of saves.

    • Doolittle (toe) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Friday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports. Doolittle will wind up having missed two months after fracturing a toe in early July. He should soon retake his closer role, though given the length of his absence and his lack of a rehab assignment, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him work at least one lower-leverage inning to get back up to speed.

    • Nationals' Sean Doolittle: Plays catch Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Manager Dave Martinez said Doolittle (toe) played catch Thursday and could return from the 10-day DL at some point this weekend, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Doolittle felt just fine after tossing a simulated game Wednesday, as demonstrated by his workout prior to Washington's contest Thursday. Martinez added that more should be known regarding Doolittle's status after he finishes up playing catch Thursday, though he failed to comment as to whether the left-hander would have any additional hurdles to clear before coming off the shelf.

    • Doolittle (toe) threw a successful simulated game Wednesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports. Everything apparently went off without a hitch, and the Nationals will wait and see how Doolittle feels Thursday before determining his next step. Manager Dave Martinez said "it's his call now," when asked about Doolittle's return date, so it sounds like the southpaw could be back in the fold soon if he checks out OK in the coming days. Doolittle figures to immediately resume closing duties once activated.

    • Doolittle (toe) will throw a simulated game Wednesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. Manager Dave Martinez said Doolittle looked good during a simulated game Sunday, but the southpaw's velocity was apparently down, so the Nationals want to get one more look at him to make sure he's mechanically sound before clearing him to return. Once active, Doolittle figures to immediately reclaim closing duties.
