Athletics RP Sean Doolittle activated from 15-day DL
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) The Athletics activated reliever Sean Doolittle from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. He has been sidelined all season due to a shoulder injury.
A's manager Bob Melvin has said Doolittle will be eased into the closer's role. During a rehab assignment in the minors, the left-hander posted a 9.00 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in five appearances (five innings) between Class A, Double-A and Triple-A. He struck out five, didn't issue a walk and allowed three home runs.

|(5/25/15) Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
"Whether it's earlier in the game, maybe he can face some lefties, which has been a little bit of an issue for us, and then we can work him into that closer's spot," manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com.
Doolittle won't be inserted into the closer role immediately upon his return, manager Bob Melvin said this weekend, but the reliever is expected to fill that role long-term. He posted a 2.73 ERA and 89:8 K:BB ratio in 62 2/3 innings while racking up 22 saves last season.

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.

|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.
