Sean Doolittle: I'm ready to roll
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/11/14) Athletics closer Sean Doolittle has declared himself ready to be activated off the disabled list after a 40-pitch session Wednesday, the Bay Area News Group has reported. That could happen as early as Friday.
Doolittle, who has been sidelined for nearly three weeks with an intercostal strain, was among the surprises of the season before going down. He has save 20 saves in 23 opportunities with just 34 hits allowed in 55 1/3 innings pitched. Doolittle has fanned 80.
|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 will return as the A's closer this season.
2015 outlook: Doolittle's superb strikeout (12.8 K/9) and walk (1.1 BB/9) ratios were no fluke, and he is practically guaranteed to get many more save opportunities this year. Those extra saves should be enough to propel Doolittle into the top 10 among relievers, make him draftable in the middle rounds.
