Felix Doubront took a no-decision in Monday's loss to the Angels, yielding four runs over six innings.

Doubront gave up five hits and walked four while striking out four in the effort. One of the hits included a solo home run to Marcus Semien. The lefty has an ugly 5.57 ERA with a 1.52 WHIP and a 55/26 K/BB ratio over 74 1/3 innings. Doubront closes the book on his season with a road start against the Mariners.

Felix Doubront was whipped again on Wednesday, this time surrendering seven runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rangers.

The left-hander coughed up two homers after giving up five across his last three starts. There had been some hope that the A's could squeeze some value out of Doubront and perhaps get his career back on track, but that has not happened. He's been drummed to the tune of a 5.53 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and .304 opponent's batting average in 2015.

Felix Doubront failed to keep the ball in the park in Sunday's loss to the Rangers, allowing seven runs (three home runs) on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Shin-soo Choo cracked a solo homer off Doubront with one out in the first inning, but his true nemesis was Adrian Beltre. Beltre took him deep in both the fourth (a two-run homer) and the fifth (a three-run shot). The other run on his line scored on a measly RBI single by Elvis Andrus, also in the fifth inning. The 27-year-old southpaw holds a 4.99 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 40/18 K/BB ratio across 51 2/3 innings. The strikeout numbers are decent, but the rest is just a bag of sadness. Doubront will search for happier times when he toes the road rubber against the Astros in his next scheduled start.

Felix Doubront allowed four runs in six innings and earned the win on Monday facing the Angels.

Doubront had allowed three over six innings, but allowed a single and a walk to lead off the seventh before departing. Reliever Edward Mujica allowed one of his inherited runners to score. Overall, the lefty gave up seven hits and walked four while striking out five. Doubront, who had battled a foot contusion, now has a 3.99 ERA with a 1.48 WHIP and a 35/16 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings. He'll make a start at home against the Mariners next.

Felix Doubront (foot) will have his next start pushed back until Monday.

He had been scheduled to work against the D'Backs on Saturday, but the A's want to play things cautiously and give his foot a couple of extra days to heal. Aaron Brooks was recalled from Triple-A and will start in his place on Saturday.

Felix Doubront (foot) has been cleared for his next scheduled start on Saturday in Arizona.

Doubront exited Monday's outing after just two innings due to a right foot contusion, but he ran and threw without issue Wednesday. The left-hander holds a 2.41 ERA over 18 2/3 innings since joining the A's.

Felix Doubront (foot) will be re-evaluated on Wednesday before a decision is made on whether he can make his next start.

Doubront left Monday's outing after just two innings due to a right foot contusion. He's still limping on Tuesday but said the foot is feeling much better. We'll know soon whether the A's will have to find another fill-in starter.

Felix Doubront left Monday's start against the Mariners after just two innings due to a right foot contusion.

Doubront was hit by a Robinson Cano liner in the first inning. He gutted it out through another frame but was in too much pain to continue. It's unclear whether Doubront will undergo an X-ray.

Felix Doubront held the Dodgers to an unearned run over six innings, but got a no-decision as the Athletics needed 10 innings to win 5-4 on Tuesday.

Doubront went toe-to-toe with Clayton Kershaw and nearly came out a winner. The Dodgers' only run came in during the second inning on a Jimmy Rollins ground out. The lefty allowed only one hit and struck out eight, but walked six batters. Doubront, who's been a journeyman over the last two seasons, carries a 3.89 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP and a 26/14 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings. It's not known yet if the Athletics will give him another start, but if they do, he's on track to face the Mariners in Seattle next.

Felix Doubront is expected to join the Athletics' rotation on either Monday or Tuesday.

Sonny Gray is hoping to return from a back injury on Monday, which means Doubront is likely to start Tuesday's game against the Dodgers. Doubront has bounced around, beginning the year with the Cubs in spring training and getting another chance in Toronto before joining the A's at the trade deadline. The journeyman left-hander can probably be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Felix Doubront pitched 6 1/3 innings of relief Wednesday, allowing two runs against the Blue Jays.

It's the second longest relief appearance of the year, behind Vidal Nuno's 6 2/3-inning outing for the Diamondbacks in May. One can argue the Jays weren't trying very hard with their huge lead, but for a lefty to hold them to two runs in 6 1/3 is an accomplishment.

Athletics acquired LHP Felix Doubront from the Blue Jays in exchange for cash considerations.

Doubront had been designated for assignment earlier this week. He's been added to the major league roster, though it's unclear if he'll be used as a starter or reliever.

Blue Jays designated LHP Felix Doubront for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Troy Tulowitzki. Doubront pitched well in his first start with the Jays but wasn't so good his last three times out.

Felix Doubront lasted only four innings, allowing three runs as the Blue Jays were defeated on Tuesday by the Phillies.

All three runs came in the fifth inning, as the Phillies used an infield single and three doubles to plate two runs and chase Doubront out of the game. The lefty gave up six hits and a pair of walks while striking out three. Doubront has made only four starts this season, but only one of them was passable. He has a 4.76 ERA, a 1.63 WHIP, and a 13/5 K/BB ratio over 22 2/3 innings. He will take on the Royals at home in his next outing.
