Sean Doolittle beginning minor league rehab Thursday as A's return nears

Oakland A's closer Sean Doolittle, sidelined all season so far because of a slight tear in his rotator cuff, is making a big stride today: he'll pitch in a minor league game with Single-A Stockton on Thursday. Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area notes that this is likely the 'final step' in Doolittle's rehab before he's able to rejoin the A's.  When he does return, it will likely come...

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” […]

VIDEO – A’s coaches learn all about social media in new commercial

Well done, Oakland A’s.  In this commercial spot, pitcher Sean Doolittle teaches his coaches all about social media.  It’s a pretty fun look at the weird and unique world full of hashtags, selfies, and more that we can become easily drowned in these days.  The best part?  The coaches pronounce GIF with a hard “G.”  I just became an A’s fan this season. [MLB.com] The...

The Oakland A’s most hindering player injuries

The Oakland A’s have been riddled with injuries for some time now. It seems as though just as someone gets better, another Athletic incurs a multi-day injury. For a team who likes have a deep bench in order to mix and match their players, it has become harder and harder for them to customize lineups as players fall to concussions, strained hamstrings, and back spasms. But which...

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...
