Athletics' Tyler Clippard pitches scoreless ninth
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Athletics closer Tyler Clippard pitched a scoreless ninth in Saturday's win over the Rays.
Clippard allowed two hits and walked one, while striking out two. It was a non-save situation, with the Rays leading by five, but Clippard preserved the team shutout.
It was the first appearance in five days for Clippard, who lowered his ERA to 2.37.
Doolittle will not immediately return to A's closer's role upon return

|(5/23/15) Athletics closer Sean Doolittle, who is on a rehab assignment with Double-A Midland, will throw again Sunday and be re-evaluated Monday, manager Bob Melvin told reporters Saturday.
Melvin said Doolittle told him "this is the best he's felt" since getting hurt. He is throwing about 90 mph. The left-hander is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in four outings between Class A, Double-A and Triple-A.
Melvin added Doolittle won't immediately return to the closer's role upon his activation from the disabled list, but said, "We need him there."
Tyler Clippard has filled in as closer in Doolittle's absence. He has a team-high four saves. Jesse Chavez is the only other player on the roster with a save.

After throwing 25 pitches in a May 17 outing against the White Sox, Clippard got all three batters out in nine pitches.
Tyler Clippard throws an inning of relief in A's extra-inning defeat

Clippard pitched just the one inning and did not factor in a save or decision.
Athletics' Tyler Clippard records five-out save vs. Twins
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Athletics closer Tyler Clippard struck out two in 1 2/3 perfect innings of work for his third save of the season Tuesday night against Minnesota.
Clippard has converted three of four save chances, with a 2.25 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and 9:6 K:BB ratio over 12 innings of relief.
|2014 Summary: Tyler Clippard's 2014 season went about like his previous five had gone. One of the game's top setup men since the Nationals first introduced him to the role in 2009, he was again a sure thing in the eighth inning, leading the majors with 40 holds. His 2.18 ERA was his lowest in three years, and his 1.00 WHIP gave him a 0.96 mark over the last four.|
Playing time status: The Nationals passed Clippard over for Drew Storen when they replaced Rafael Soriano as their closer in September, and then this offseason, they dealt him to the Athletics for Yunel Escobar. At least temporarily, Clippard is likely to get a chance to close after all, as he is the leading candidate to replace the injured Sean Doolittle.
2015 Outlook: Because it's not clear how long Doolittle will be out, Clippard has some appeal as a late-round option in standard mixed leagues. Though he is three seasons removed from a 32-save campaign, Clippard still has the skills to be an effective closer as long as he gets to keep the job.
