— Player Notes
Advice: Doolittle's working his way back from a slight tear in his rotator cuff, diagnosed in late January. He's started to pitch in minor league games at High-A Stockton and will continue on that front in a rehab appearance on Sunday. He could be ready to return by late May or early June, though the A's are likely to ease him back into the closer's role.
