Sean Doolittle plans to continue his pitching career next season.

Doolittle, who will be a free agent this offseason, expressed a desire to return to the Washington Nationals.

"I really would like a do-over," said Doolitte, who only appeared in six games in 2022 before being shut down with an elbow sprain that would lead him to undergo an internal brace procedure in July.

"I realize that there's a lot that I have to do on my end to even have that be a possibility. But hopefully January or ahead of camp in February, I can show them that I'm healthy and come in and compete for a spot."
