Sleeper Candidates for the American League All-Star team

Sean Doolittle – Oakland Athletics

Oh, look! Another Oakland A! Sean Doolittle’s numbers are just crazy ridiculous this year, man. In his 34 innings of work out of the bullpen, he has struck out 48 batters, and walked one. One walk in 34 innings (!!!). He made it a smooth transition for Bob Melvin when he was forced to remove Jim Johnson’s awfulness from the closer role and tab Doolittle as the new 9th inning guy in Oakland. Some people might not even know he’s closing right now. Well, he isn’t closing. He is DOMINATING.



Just missed the cut: Wade Davis (Kansas City Royals), Lonnie Chisenhall (Cleveland Indians), Kurt Suzuki (Minnesota Twins).
