(6/13/2015) The Athletics announced that reliever Sean Doolittle was transferred to the 60-day disabled list on Saturday. Doolittle has been on the DL since May 30 due to a left shoulder strain. 

The left-hander missed the first part of the season with a shoulder injury. He was activated on May 26, and made one appearance before returning to the DL. He will now be out for an extended period of time with his latest injury.

Crisp has been sidelined since May 19 with a lingering neck issue. He received an epidural in his neck on Monday, and is expected to be shut down for the next month.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle made his season debut on Wednesday, giving up one hit in a scoreless inning of work while striking out two in his team's 3-2 loss to the Tigers.

Doolittle averaged just 89 mph with his fastball in the outing after averaging 94-96 mph in past years, but he said his velocity will return in time, MLB.com reports.

"I think that will give me some confidence moving forward, not having to worry about what the radar gun says and know that I can pitch a little bit now," Doolittle said. "To have those other options to go to, I think it takes a lot of the pressure off."

Doolittle served as the team's regular closer for much of last season, posting a 2.73 ERA and 89:8 K:BB ratio in 62 2/3 innings while recording 22 saves.

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 added Doolittle won't immediately return to the closer's role upon his activation from the disabled list, but said, "We need him there."
