Mopping up after Clay Buchholz was pulled, Felix Doubront gave up six runs while getting just two outs in the sixth inning Monday against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox brought Doubront in with the idea that he'd pitch at least a couple of innings and maybe even finish the game. Instead, he gave up six hits and two walks to the 10 batters he faced, throwing 36 pitches in the inning. It's possible that it was his last outing with Boston, as he'd like a trade if he's not going to be a starter, but it's quite a bit more likely that he sticks around and gets another chance to start later this year.

Felix Doubront said Sunday that he'd rather be traded if he's not going to start for the Red Sox.

"If something happens, it’s going to happen because it’s going to be the best for me," he said. "I just want to be a starter and stay there. If I stay (with the Red Sox), they have to know I have to be a starter. If I go, the other team is going to give me this chance to be a starter." Doubront has little to complain about here, as he holds a 5.22 ERA this season and a pedestrian 4.70 mark during his career. Manager John Farrell indicated that the lefty isn't going to be starting again for the Sox anytime soon. "There's a clear role for him in the bullpen and sometimes performance guides where you're slotted," the skipper said.
Jul 27 - 1:52 PM

Felix Doubront will not start next week versus the Cubs as previously expected.

Doubront had been expected to make one more start in order to get other rotation members some rest. However, with Chris Capuano being designated for assignment, Doubront is needed in long relief right away.
Jun 27 - 5:02 PM

The Red Sox have moved Felix Doubront to the bullpen.

He's expected to get another start next week against the Cubs, but that's merely to give the other starters some extra rest. Brandon Workman will remain in the rotation at the expense of Doubront, who holds a 5.19 ERA over 10 starts this season. Workman will start on Friday versus the Yankees.
Jun 24 - 8:09 PM

Felix Doubront overcame a three-run first to hold the A's scoreless for the next 3 2/3 innings Friday in his return from the disabled list.

Doubront didn't allow a hit after Josh Donaldson's three-run homer in the first, but that was as much due to luck as anyway. He wasn't all that sharp, and his velocity was disappointing, as he typically worked below 90 mph. If he's no better next time, the Red Sox should strongly consider sending him to the pen.
Jun 21 - 1:46 AM

Red Sox activated LHP Felix Doubront from the 15-day disabled list.

Doubront, out for about a month with a left shoulder strain, will return to start in the place of the suspended Brandon Workman on Friday against the Athletics. It's unclear if he'll remain in the rotation moving forward. The southpaw had a 5.12 ERA and 31/19 K/BB ratio in 45 2/3 innings over nine starts prior to going on the DL.
Jun 20 - 7:21 PM

Felix Doubront (shoulder) will start on Friday against the Athletics.

He's taking the turn for Brandon Workman, who is serving a six-game suspension. It's possible Doubront will be sent to the bullpen after Friday's outing, as both Workman and Rubby De La Rosa are pitching well. Fantasy owners should steer clear of him against the A's.
Jun 19 - 6:50 PM

Felix Doubront (shoulder) could be used as a reliever when he returns from the disabled list.

Doubront struck out 10 in his last rehab start and appears ready for activation, but both Rubby De La Rosa and Brandon Workman have been great in the Red Sox' rotation. Clay Buchholz (knee) will regain his rotation spot when he's ready, but Doubront might not be so lucky.
Jun 17 - 10:14 PM

Felix Doubront (shoulder) struck out 10 and didn't allow a hit over five innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket Sunday.

Doubront walked four, needing 93 pitches to cover the five frames. Still, it has to be considered a positive showing for the left-hander in what is expected to be his final rehab start. Brandon Workman or Rubby De La Rosa are likely to be bumped from the rotation later this week to make room for Doubront.
Jun 15 - 2:54 PM

Felix Doubront's (shoulder) rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday is expected to be his last.

Doubront gave up six hits and two runs over 4 2/3 innings in his second rehab outing Tuesday, getting his pitch count up to 75. Neither stat line has been impressive, but the Red Sox have been pleased with how the lefty has looked. "The more important thing is watching him in his bullpens between the two outings and leading up to it, and hearing him talk about how he feels the ball is coming out of his hand," said manager John Farrell. "Clearly, there's improvement being made. But we know our plan is to have him go one more start with Pawtucket to have him get up and down six different times, and that will be five days from now."
Jun 10 - 9:33 PM

Felix Doubront (shoulder) will make at least two more rehab starts.

Doubront allowed two runs but didn't walk anyone over four innings at Double-A Portland on Thursday. He'll go five frames on Tuesday and six on Sunday at Triple-A Pawtucket before being re-evaluated. The lefty should be activated after that if all goes well, but it's probably not a given that he rejoins the big league rotation.
Jun 8 - 9:14 AM

Felix Doubront (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Thursday at Double-A Portland.

The left-hander is expected to make at least two minor league rehab starts. He has been on the disabled list since May 21 with a shoulder strain and had a rough 5.12 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 45 2/3 innings before the injury.
Jun 3 - 5:15 PM

Felix Doubront (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Monday.

Doubront's been out since May 21 with a left shoulder strain. While a date hasn't been set for Doubront to begin a rehab assignment, manager John Farrell indicated that they'll continue to ramp up the number of pitches for the lefty. "We'll start to incorporate some simulated innings before we get him out on a date for a rehab assignment," Farrell said. Before the injury, Doubront was sporting an ERA north of 5.00, and it remains to be seen whether he'll be pitching in the rotation or bullpen once he returns.
Jun 2 - 9:48 PM

Felix Doubront (shoulder) is scheduled to throw long-toss Thursday.

Doubront landed on the DL a week ago with a left shoulder strain, an ailment that came up as a result of him bumping his shoulder on a car door. He shouldn't be out long, but it's not a given that the lefty will rejoin the rotation once healthy.
May 29 - 7:03 PM

Felix Doubront told the Red Sox medical staff that he bumped his left shoulder on a car door Monday.

That might help explain his feeling of shoulder weakness (and subsequent dip in velocity) in Tuesday's five-run, four-inning thrashing by the Blue Jays. Doubront was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with what's being termed a "left shoulder strain" -- though it sounds like it might just be a contusion. Allen Webster, Brandon Workman, and Rubby De La Rosa are the candidates to fill Boston's vacant rotation spot.
