Athletics' Sean Doolittle throws bullpen, ready for live hitters
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(8/2/15) Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle threw a 31-pitch bullpen session on Saturday, per the San Francisco Chronicle.
Doolittle is on the 60-day disabled list, recovering from a shoulder injury. He'll be able to face live hitters in a simulated game this week, manager Bob Melvin told the media on Sunday.

|(7/31/15) Athletics reliever Sean Doolittle threw from a mound on Thursday, the first time he's done so since landing on the disabled list for a second time at the end of May.
Doolittle made 26 pitches, mixing in all of his pitches on Thursday.
"That's the best bullpen I've seen him throw," manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com. "I think he feels psychologically a little bit better about letting it go. It seemed to me that he was guarding it a little bit more so the last time. He definitely was not this time. It seemed like there was a lot more whip."
The left-hander, who is out with a strained left shoulder, is expected to have another bullpen session on Saturday. If all goes well, he could go out on a rehab assignment shortly thereafter.

Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle hopeful he can return this season
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) As Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle works his way back from a shoulder strain, he is optimistic of returning at some point this season, reports CSNBayArea.com.
"I've been working so hard to get back. I have my mind set on pitching this year," Doolittle said before Wednesday's game. "Obviously we're going to be smart with it. But it looks like there's a really good chance I'll be pitching this year."
Doolittle will start throwing off the mound after two flat-ground sessions later this week.

|2014 summary: Coming into the season, Sean Doolittle had already made the amazing journey from minor league first baseman to major league reliever, but then he took it a step further. When Jim Johnson didn't work out as the Athletics' closer, Doolittle became part of a closer committee, and he was ultimately the one to step forward and claim the job for himself. Doolittle thrived in the role, as he posted a 2.73 ERA and 0.73 WHIP with 89 strikeouts on the season. However, a lack of save opportunities kept him out of the top 20 in Fantasy points for relievers. Doolittle did convert 22 of his 26 save chances.|
Playing time status: Doolittle was set to return as the A's closer this season until a tear in his left rotator cuff was discovered during the offseason. He will almost certainly miss opening day, and he has no clear timetable for his return.
2015 outlook: Doolittle's superb strikeout (12.8 K/9) and walk (1.1 BB/9) ratios were no fluke, and even though he will get a late start to the season, he could still get more save opportunities this year. Though Doolittle has the potential to be among the top 10 relievers in all of Fantasy, the missed time makes him a better candidate to be drafted as a No. 2 reliever.
