Player Notes
Sean Doolittle was charged with two earned runs in two-thirds of an inning Sunday against the Rays.

Advice: It was his first outing since May 27 and he did not look sharp. A's manager suggested Saturday morning that Doolittle might be able to earn back his old closer gig, but he'll have to string together several good appearances before that happens. Drew Pomeranz seems to be the guy to own right now in Oakland, though he blew a save on Saturday.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that he expects Sean Doolittle to get his closer job back.

Advice: "Whether it’s put him right in there or give him a lesser role to start, we’ll see," Melvin said. "Well, that’s what he does. So as long as he’s healthy and feels good, we’ll get him back there at some point." With Edward Mujica struggling and Drew Pomeranz having blown a save on Saturday, Doolittle could return to the ninth inning in short order. He's missed almost all of the season with a shoulder issue, but started to see his velocity creep back up in his last handful of rehab outings. Fantasy owners will want to go ahead and scoop Doolittle up if he's available.

Athletics activated LHP Sean Doolittle from the 60-day disabled list.

Advice: He's missed the last three months with a shoulder injury. Doolittle looked sharp during his five-game rehab assignment, recording a 1.80 ERA with 10 strikeouts in only five innings of work. It shouldn't be long until Doolittle overtakes Edward Mujica for the closer's role, though the struggling A's haven't provided many save opportunities this year.
