SEAN DOOLITTLE RUMORS

Doolittle frustrated as shoulder strain sends him back to D.L.

Oakland Athletics reliever Sean Doolittle is back on the shelf after experiencing more shoulder pain. The left-hander just made his 2015 debut on Wednesday afternoon, pitching one clean inning and feeling 'awesome' afterwards...but later that night he felt what he described as a 'stabbing pain' in his shoulder. After team doctors evaluated him once again, the A's placed him on the...

A's closer Sean Doolittle returns to DL with another shoulder strain

  Two days after making his first appearance of the season, Oakland Athletics closer Sean Doolittle was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left shoulder.

A's Doolittle upbeat after 'awesome' season debut on Wednesday

Oakland A's reliever Sean Doolittle made his first appearance of the season on Wednesday, tossing a shutout inning and picking up two strikeouts in the process. It was not the usual flame-throwing Doolittle that took the mound however; his fastball barely reached 90 MPH and he relied more on his secondary pitches. Coming back from off-season rotator cuff surgery, that might ordinarily...

Doolittle not concerned about 'role' in A's bullpen right now

As expected, the Oakland A's reinstated reliever Sean Doolittle from the disabled list on Tuesday. The lefty didn't get into Tuesday night's game with the Detroit Tigers, but he's now eligible to pitch for the first time in 2015 after undergoing shoulder surgery during spring training. Recent word had the A's planning to use him in a more 'relaxed' role as he eases his way back into...

Sean Doolittle: Rehabbing a Shoulder

The least interesting thing about recovering from a shoulder injury might be trying to figure out how it happened. It happened, and life has to move on. In Sean Doolittle‘s case, it might — might! — have happened while he was taking anti-inflammatories for his oblique late last year, meaning the pain was “slightly masked” […]

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...

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...
