— Player Notes
Advice: Doolittle has spent the first two months of the 2015 regular season rehabbing a slight tear in his left rotator cuff. He allowed five runs in five innings on his rehab assignment, so the A's will likely ease him back into high-leverage situations. The 28-year-old southpaw should eventually take over for Tyler Clippard at closer.

Advice: The A's received glowing reports from Doolittle's last rehab outing on Friday, and barring any setbacks it looks as though he will be cleared to rejoin the bullpen at some point next week. Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated that he would probably be used in lower leverage situations his first couple of times out, easing the hard-throwing southpaw back into the closer's role. His return would spell the end of the fantasy value for Tyler Clippard.

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.
