SEAN DOOLITTLE RUMORS

Doolittle dazzles for A's in perfect inning of work vs. Diamondbacks

After lefty Sean Doolittle navigated the eighth inning on Sunday afternoon with ease, striking out Arizona Diamondbacks hitters Yasmany Tomas and A.J. Pollock and preserving the Oakland Athletics' 4-3 lead, his manager was impressed.  2015's been a rough go for Doolittle, who is still easing his way back into the bullpen mix for Bob Melvin's A's as they look ahead to next season...

Melvin: One or two more rehab appearances for Doolittle before A's return

The Oakland Athletics are proceeding very carefully with 2014 All-Star reliever Sean Doolittle. Though the lefty is close to returning to the A's after missing almost three months with a shoulder strain, they aren't in a hurry to get him back on the mound. This makes sense given the A's tremendous difficulties this season and their last-place stance in the AL West. On Monday, manager...

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...
