The good news is official!! From the Nats:

“The Washington Nationals agreed to terms on a one-year contract with left-handed pitcher Sean Doolittle and placed right-handed pitcher Joe Ross on the 60-day Injured List with a right elbow burn spur removal on Wednesday. Nationals President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo made the announcement.

Doolittle, 35, returns to the Nationals where he recorded 75 saves and a 3.03 ERA in 147 games across parts of four seasons (2017-20) in Washington. A National League All-Star in 2018 and a World Series Champion in 2019, Doolittle’s 75 saves as a National are tied for eighth-most in a career in Nationals history (2005-pres.).

Doolittle went 3-1 with one save and a 4.53 ERA in 56 games between the Cincinnati Reds and Seattle Mariners in 2021. He struck out 53 batters in 49.2 innings pitched along the way.

A veteran of 10 Major League seasons, Doolittle is 26-24 with 112 saves and a 3.23 ERA in 457 career games. He began his career with the Oakland Athletics (2012-17) before being acquired by the Nationals in July 2017.”
