Nationals' Sean Doolittle: Throwing from 75 feet

Doolittle (elbow) has been throwing from 75 feet recently, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Doolittle was cleared to begin a throwing program this week and has progressed well in his rehab after receiving a PRP injection in late April. The southpaw still needs to increase his intensity, so he's likely several weeks away from returning to game action.

Nationals' Sean Doolittle: Starts throwing program

Doolittle (elbow) recently resumed playing catch and is throwing long toss, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports. The veteran left-hander was shut down from throwing for six weeks after receiving a PRP injection in late April, but he's been cleared to resume throwing. Doolittle will need some time to build him arm strength back up before returning to mound work, so he's likely still at least a few weeks away from being ready for game action.

Nats' Sean Doolittle pleads for 'common-sense reforms' on gun laws

On Tuesday night, just after the Washington Nationals held a moment of silence for the victims of the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, a middle school choir sang the national anthem at Nationals Park. And that's when Nationals reliever Sean Doolittle says he "broke," thinking about how the children murdered in Texas were younger than those singing America's song, and about how this country "can't even guarantee enough safety in schools to make it so kids can reach that age."

Nationals claim Cory Abbott, move Sean Doolittle to 60-day IL

The Nationals announced that right-hander Cory Abbott has been claimed off outright waivers from the Giants. Abbott has been optioned to Triple-A, and left-hander Sean Doolittle has been moved to the 60-day injured list to create a 40-man roster spot. Abbott is changing teams for the second time in two weeks, as San Francisco only acquired him from the Cubs (for cash considerations) on April 21 after Chicago had previously designated Abbott for assignment.

Nationals' Sean Doolittle: Shifts to 60-day IL

The Nationals transferred Doolittle (elbow) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports. The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for waiver pickup Cory Abbott while ensuring that Doolittle is sidelined for the foreseeable future after news of his left elbow sprain first surfaced following his April 19 appearance against the Diamondbacks. According to Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post, Doolittle received a PRP injection last week and will be shut down from throwing for the next six weeks, so he'll likely be sidelined through the All-Star break.

Nationals' Sean Doolittle: Not yet throwing

Manager Dave Martinez said Wednesday that Doolittle (elbow) hasn't yet been cleared to resume throwing, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Doolittle has been on the injured list for a week and has been cleared to resume workouts, but he'll presumably require more than a minimal stay on the IL since he isn't yet throwing. A better timetable for the southpaw's return to game action is unlikely to be revealed until he begins a throwing program.

Nationals reliever Sean Doolittle on IL with sprained elbow

WASHINGTON (AP) — “I couldn’t stop thinking about it last night. Flew too close to the sun, man: ‘Finally develops a breaking ball and ends up on the IL.’ It had been a long con; I’d been setting guys up for 10 years without a breaking ball, and I start throwing a breaking ball now, and look where it got me,” Doolittle said in the Nationals Park home clubhouse, before quickly making sure everyone realized he was kidding and added: “I don’t think that’s the reason, by the way.”
