Sean Doolittle (knee) placed on 10-day IL

The Nationals placed Sean Doolittle on the 10-day injured list with knee tendinitis.

Fantasy Impact

Doolittle blew another save last night, giving up four runs on three homers. Perhaps this knee issue explains why he has been struggling lately. Daniel Hudson should see some save chances in his absence. Add him everywhere.

Sean Doolittle earns 28th save Friday

Nationals closer Sean Doolittle allowed one walk and struck out one over one inning to earn his 28th save of the season in Friday's win over the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Doolittle has hit some rough patches this season as evidenced by his 3.66 ERA, but he remains one of the most valuable closers in fantasy.

Sean Doolittle earns 27th save in shaky outing Monday

Nationals closer Sean Doolittle earned his 27th save of the season in Monday's win over the Reds, but he allowed two earned runs on three hits and a walk in the process.

Fantasy Impact

Doolittle has now allowed six earned runs over his last three appearances to see his ERA jump to 3.73 on the season. He was pitching for the second day in a row and third time in four days, so it's possible he just didn't have it on Monday. He is not in any danger of losing the closer's job in Washington at this point, but that has as much to do with the lackluster Nationals bullpen as it does their confidence in Doolittle.

Sean Doolittle bounces back for 26th save Sunday

Nationals closer Sean Doolittle struck out one over a perfect ninth inning to convert his 26th save of the season in Sunday's win over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

Doolittle had allowed four earned runs in his previous appearance, so Sunday was a nice bounce back performance by the veteran closer.
