SEAN DOOLITTLE RUMORS

Smash Mouth may have spoiled Sean Doolittle’s engagement announcement

Oakland Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle took to Twitter to announce his engagement to Eireann Dolan by using bobbleheads as props on his Twitter account. That’s a fun and creative way to share the good news, as both have their likenesses captured in bobblehead form. The two are also pretty fun and light-hearted on Twitter, so this feels like it as par for the course for these...

Sean Doolittle Was Psyched To See ‘Star Wars,’ His Girlfriend Not So Much (Photos)

Sean Doolittle is a huge “Star Wars” fan, which wasn’t the greatest thing for his girlfriend Thursday. Doolittle, like many “Star Wars” enthusiasts, braved long lines and huge crowds to catch the “The Force Awakens” as soon as humanly possible. Doolittle even dressed up for the movie, going out in public and to the theater dressed as Chewbacca. That’s a potentially...

Two Tweaks Got Sean Doolittle to Chapter Three

The first time Sean Doolittle‘s career almost ended, he still owned a first baseman’s glove. The second time his career almost ended, he was clutching his throwing shoulder and wondering why he couldn’t crack 90 mph on the radar gun. During his second comeback, often he wondered why he was “pitching with the break on” as he put it last week. A tweak to his repertoire and...

WATCH: Sean Doolittle gets cup check from teammate

By Steve DelVecchio Oakland A’s reliever Sean Doolittle pitched in just one game this season and has been on the disabled list since. Missing that much time can certainly take a player’s focus away, which is probably why Doolittle was caught posing in the dugout like Mike Honcho on Thursday night. Doolittle was standing with one leg up on the dugout step during his team’s...

A's closer Sean Doolittle is having a historical season

New Oakland Athletics closer Sean Doolittle wasn’t able to hit a game-tying home run in the bottom of the 10th on Sunday against the Boston Red Sox, but he’s been about as dominating as you can get from the bump thus far this season. The former minor league position player has not yielded a run in his last 24.1 innings. He has struck out 37, walked one and given up six hits during...

The Oakland A’s ever changing bullpen

Sean Doolittle The Oakland A’s have one of the strongest bullpens in the MLB, but they also have one of the most unpredictable and changing bullpens in the league. Since spring training, their starting rotation has been altered three different times. The relievers have had no consistency or structure since early April when the the A’s employed the closer-by-committee approach...

Who else should the Oakland A’s sign to a long-term contract?

This past week, the Oakland A’s signed left-handed reliever Sean Doolittle to a five year contract. After switching from a first baseman to a pitcher in 2011, Doolittle has become one of the most reliable and consistent relievers in the Athletics’ bullpen. The A’s rarely sign players to lengthy contracts, but, with such a young team, it would be a good idea to lock up some...
