Injury to insult

Sean Doolittle

Pitcher • Washington

A day after allowing three ninth-inning homers and blowing his sixth save in a 14-inning loss to the Brewers, the Nationals closer was placed on the injured list Sunday because of right knee tendinitis. Doolittle (6-4) is 0-2 with a 7.36 ERA since the All-Star break, and his 52 innings pitched are his most since 2014.
