Athletics | Back to closer-by-committee?

Wed, 14 May 2014 13:29:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle hadn't allowed a run in his last seven outings, and he had 13 strikeouts in that span over 8 1/3 innings entering the game Tuesday, May 13. "He certainly has the stuff to do it," manager Bob Melvin said of Doolittle as potential closer, "but he's so good coming in with guys on base." Doolittle recorded his second save after RP Fernando Abad walked a hitter in the ninth Monday, May 12. Melvin said it appears the team has gone back to a closer-by-committee situation after trying to get RP Jim Johnson back in the closer role. Melvin said that Johnson just isn't there yet.

Fantasy Tip: Doolittle was likely dropped by his previous owners in most leagues. If you have the room and could use some potential save chances, to go along with nice peripherals, grab him now.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle nails down save

Tue, 13 May 2014 07:35:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle pitched a perfect ninth inning and struck out two for his second save Monday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: RPs Fernando Abad and Jim Johnson were ineffective when they opened the ninth inning. They combined for two runs on two hits and a walk without retiring a batter. Doolittle appears to have the clear path to save chances.

Athletics | Four locks for bullpen

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 20:30:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics RPs Jim Johnson, Luke Gregerson, Sean Doolittle and Dan Otero are each considered locks for the bullpen for manager Bob Melvin. Left-handed RP Fernando Abad is also expected to get one of the vacant bullpen spot, with RP Evan Scribner looking like a good bet for another spot as a long reliever. That likely leaves on spot from a group of Ps Drew Pomeranz, Josh Lindblom, Joe Savery and Arnold Leon. Lindblom is believed to have the edge in the battle.

Nationals | Ryan Mattheus continues to rehab

Tue, 16 Jul 2013 19:01:59 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Ryan Mattheus (hand) moved his minor-league rehab assignment to Double-A Harrisburg Tuesday, July 16. He allowed one run and one hit in an outing for Class A Hagerstown Sunday, July 14. Mattheus has been sidelined since May 19 after he suffered a broken right hand punching a locker. "He probably needs three or four outings to make sure that there's no problem coming back," manager Davey Johnson said. When Mattheus is ready, the team has a difficult decision since RPs Fernando Abad and Ian Krol have performed well lately.

Nationals | Impressed with Fernando Abad

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 15:24:25 -0800

The Washington Nationals have been impressed with RP Fernando Abad so far in camp. "I was really impressed with the way he threw the other day," manager Davey Johnson said. "The way he attacked the hitters (Wednesday), he threw a couple good curveballs. That was great. (Pitching coach Steve McCatty) wanted him to throw another inning. I said, 'No. I want to see that again the day after tomorrow.'" The Nats have only one other left-hander penciled into their bullpen (RP Zach Duke). Abad said his poor 2012 season was attributed to arm fatigue, and he built his endurance by running long distances in the offseason. Also, his arm slot was too far from his body a year ago, which led to him flying open when he threw. He worked this winter to stay closed and hold his arms higher, and the results so far this spring are encouraging - no hits, two strikeouts and two walks.
