Doolittle (2-0) blew a save opportunity but still ended up collecting the win against Pittsburgh on Thursday. He allowed two runs on two hits while striking out a batter during the ninth inning.

EDGE Analysis

The lefty had converted 21 straight save opportunities as a National entering Thursday, so a hiccup in a meaningless game isn't a concern. After all, Doolittle rewarded fantasy owners with a win and still boasts a high-end 2.40 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 10.9 K/9 for the campaign.

Doolittle struck out one in a clean inning of work to earn his 24th save of the season Monday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Doolittle pumped in 13 of 17 pitches for strikes as he sat down the side in order. He was rested in a save opportunity in favor of Brandon Kintzler on Sunday, but this outing showed that decision was likely related to maintenance. The lefty has been remarkably effective of late, allowing just one unearned run in his last 11 appearances while racking up nine saves in nine chances during that span.

Doolittle pitched a scoreless 10th inning to collect his 23rd save of the season during Saturday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Make it 20 in a row for Doollitle since joining the Nationals, and he sports an impressive 2.55 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 11.0 K/9 for the campaign. He should continue to be viewed as a high-end fantasy asset in all settings, and the lefty is probably the favorite to open the 2018 campaign as the Washington closer.

Doolittle struck out one in a clean ninth inning to pick up his 22nd save of the season in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Doolittle needed only 12 pitches to retire three Braves hitters en route to his 21st consecutive converted save opportunity. The lefty's last blown save came all the way back on April 15 with the A's. The 30-year-old should continue to be a consistent source of saves over the final weeks of the regular season.

Doolittle struck out the side in his only inning of work to earn his 20th save Friday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

The Nationals entered the ninth inning with a four-run lead, but after the bullpen gave up three runs without recording an out, Doolittle came on and didn't allow the Phillies to put a single ball in play. He's been an outstanding fantasy option at closer with a 2.25 ERA along with pitching for one of the best teams in the National League.

Doolittle will not be available out of the bullpen for Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Following a pair of scoreless outings the past two nights, Doolittle will get the day off for the series finale. In his place, Ryan Madson or Brandon Kintzler will likely be called up to close, if needed.

Doolittle picked up his 18th save of the season in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Marlins, allowing an unearned run on one hit in the ninth inning.

EDGE Analysis

After Marcell Ozuna led off the inning with a single, a Pedro Severino passed ball put him at second base and he moved station-to-station to score on a pair of deep fly balls. Doolittle now has a 2.45 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 20:6 K:BB in 22 innings since coming over to the Nats, and he has yet to blow a save in 15 chances.

Doolittle allowed one hit in a scoreless inning against the Brewers on Saturday en route to his 17th save of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Since his arrival from Oakland, Doolittle has provided much-needed stability at the back end of the Nationals' bullpen. He's been a bit more hittable lately (eight hits in his last four appearances), but Doolittle has issued just one walk over the past month and he's a perfect 14-for-14 in save chances with Washington.
