On March 7, A’s pitcher Sean Doolittle’s brother Ryan pitched in a spring training game. He even looks like Sean with the red beard, but Ryan is a lefty, while Sean hurls from the right side.
Ryan is hoping to make the A’s big league roster after pitching for Double-A Midland in the A’s organization in 2014. Ryan posted a 5-3 won-lost record and 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings, pitching in 30 games in relief.
Sean was an all-star reliever with the A’s in 2014, posting 20 saves.
