A’s beat: Sean Doolittle returns to disabled list with strained shoulder - SFGate

This has to be frustrating.

This setback involves a different muscle in Doolittle’s shoulder than his previous injury. That offered scant solace as he contemplated at least two weeks of inactivity; only then will Doolittle pick up a baseball again and start another throwing program.

“It’s really frustrating to work your ass off for four months, come all the way back, throw one inning and then I’m back on the shelf,” he said.

The A’s activated Doolittle on Tuesday, after he made four minor-league rehabilitation appearances without a problem. He pitched one scoreless inning Wednesday against Detroit, then felt some discomfort later that night.

Sean Doolittle’s girlfriend will buy your tickets to A’s Pride Night

As part of their special events this season, the Oakland Athletics recently introduced Pride Night. Pride Night will “celebrate the Bay Area’s LGBTQ community.” Partial proceeds from the event will benefit a non-profit charity supporting the LGBTQ media arts. After hearing about the promotion, some fans decided they did not want to attend the game, and would rather sell their tickets. Enter Eireann Dolan, girlfriend of A’s reliever Sean Doolittle. Dolan put up a post on her website, telling Athletics’ fans that she will buy their tickets if they don’t want to go to Pride Night.

A’s fans; if attending a baseball game on LGBT Pride Night makes you at all uncomfortable, it is probably a good idea to sell your tickets. And I have the perfect buyer. ME! If you’d like to sell your tickets to June 17th’s LGBT Pride Night game, I will buy them from you at face value. As many as I can. No judgments. No questions asked. From there, I will donate any tickets I purchase to the Bay Area Youth Center’s Our Space community for LGBTQ youth.

Dolan writes in the post that she was raised by two moms, both of who are die-hard A’s fans, and that’s why she’s so passionate about the cause.
