  • Doolittle (elbow) has been throwing from 75 feet recently, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Doolittle was cleared to begin a throwing program this week and has progressed well in his rehab after receiving a PRP injection in late April. The southpaw still needs to increase his intensity, so he's likely several weeks away from returning to game action.

  • Doolittle (elbow) recently resumed playing catch and is throwing long toss, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports. The veteran left-hander was shut down from throwing for six weeks after receiving a PRP injection in late April, but he's been cleared to resume throwing. Doolittle will need some time to build him arm strength back up before returning to mound work, so he's likely still at least a few weeks away from being ready for game action.

  • The Nationals transferred Doolittle (elbow) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports. The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for waiver pickup Cory Abbott while ensuring that Doolittle is sidelined for the foreseeable future after news of his left elbow sprain first surfaced following his April 19 appearance against the Diamondbacks. According to Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post, Doolittle received a PRP injection last week and will be shut down from throwing for the next six weeks, so he'll likely be sidelined through the All-Star break.

  • Manager Dave Martinez said Wednesday that Doolittle (elbow) hasn't yet been cleared to resume throwing, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Doolittle has been on the injured list for a week and has been cleared to resume workouts, but he'll presumably require more than a minimal stay on the IL since he isn't yet throwing. A better timetable for the southpaw's return to game action is unlikely to be revealed until he begins a throwing program.

  • Manager Dave Martinez said that Doolittle, who was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left elbow sprain, will be re-evaluated in 10-to-12 days before the Nationals determine his next steps, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Doolittle was shut down one day after his velocity was down a couple of ticks during his relief appearance against the Diamondbacks, according to Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com. Following the game, Doolittle underwent an MRI, which revealed a slight tear and inflammation in his elbow. At least for the time being, doctors don't believe that surgery is in the cards for Doolittle, though that could change if he fails to demonstrate much progress while he's shut down from throwing.
