Player Notes
Sean Doolittle worked two perfect innings Sunday, striking out four in an extra-innings win over the Phillies.

Advice: The A's, desperate to get a win any way they could, used Doolittle in the ninth and 10th in hopes of keeping the Phillies off the scoreboard. Doolittle obliged, retiring all six batters he faced. He then earned his second win of the season when the A's walked off in the bottom of the 10th inning. Doolittle has a dominant 2.82 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 87/7 K/BB ratio over 60 2/3 innings this season.

Sean Doolittle imploded in a big way on Wednesday, allowing five runs while only recording one out in the ninth inning against the Rangers.

Advice: A's skipper Bob Melvin called upon Doolittle with a 1-0 lead. The left-hander got the first batter out, but the situation unraveled quickly from there. Two straight hits were followed by an intentional walk, which itself was bookended by a J.P. Arencibia homer. A rattled Doolittle walked Robinson Chirinos before he finally got the hook; Chirinos later came around to score. Doolittle hadn't allowed a run since July 6 prior to tonight. The A's are now 17-27 since the beginning of August, including 6-12 in one-run games and 6-15 in road contests. That rotten stretch gift-wrapped the AL West for the Angels. If the A's don't pick it up quickly, they could get passed by the Mariners and miss the playoffs altogether.

Sean Doolittle threw a scoreless 10th inning for a save against the Mariners in his return from the disabled list Saturday.

Advice: Doolittle hadn't had a hitter take a swing off him in three weeks, but the A's threw him right back into the closer's role and he turned in an easy nine-pitch inning to finish a 3-2 victory, which evened the crucial series ahead of Sunday's finale. Jon Lester and Chris Young will go in that one.

Wed, Sep 17 Rotoworld
Athletics activated LHP Sean Doolittle from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: Doolittle has missed the last three weeks with with an intercostal strain, but he's thrown off a mound a couple times this week with no issues and is ready to go. The left-hander should immediately resume his role as Oakland's closer.
