Oakland A's relief pitcher Sean Doolittle, who has pitched in just one game this year because of a shoulder injury, was activated from the 60-day disabled list Saturday, according to CSN Bay Area. Doolittle threw the ball well during his rehab assignment with Triple-A Nashville, sporting a fastball that was clocked at 93 miles per hour while notching 13 strikeouts in six innings. Doolittle was expected to reprise his closer role season, and manager Bob Melvin said he hopes to have Doolittle back in the ninth inning at some point. The A's, though, will work him back gradually, Melvins said. "I want him to close," Melvin said. "I'm not sure we'll have him do that the first time out, but I want him to close." Drew Pomeranz could see opportunities in the ninth inning before Doolittle returns to the closer's role.

Oakland Athletics relief pitcher Sean Doolittle is expected to begin a rehab assignment this weekend as he recovers from a left shoulder strain, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Doolittle completed a simulated game Tuesday, which reportedly went well, and barring any setbacks will be cleared for a minor league assignment. He has been limited to only one appearance this season due to separate shoulder strains. Upon his return, he could push Edward Mujica for ninth inning responsibilities. Mujica just inherited the closer job following the trade of Tyler Clippard last week. Doolittle saved 22 games last year for the A's in 61 appearances, posting a 2.73 ERA and 0.73 WHIP over 62.2 innings while striking out 89. Doolittle struck out 60 in each of his first two seasons as a set-up man, posting an ERA of 3.13 or lower and a WHIP of 1.08 or lower.
