Felix Doubront has officially been confirmed as the Blue Jays' starter on Tuesday in Chicago.
It had been the assumption that he was taking the ball as long as he wasn't need in relief the last couple days, and he was not. Doubront posted a 2.44 ERA and 43/18 K/BB ratio over 48 innings at Triple-A Buffalo and allowed one run over 2 1/3 relief frames last Friday with the big club. Jul 7 - 12:19 AM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of LHP Felix Doubront from Triple-A Buffalo.

The Jays need a fifth starter following the demotion of Matt Boyd, although it's unclear whether Doubront will immediately be thrust into the rotation. The left-hander has earned a shot with some nice work at Buffalo, where he's posted a 2.44 ERA and 43/18 K/BB ratio over 48 innings.

Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports that Felix Doubront is the "likeliest candidate" to be called up to serve as the Blue Jays' No. 5 starter.

The Jays had been considering skipping the fifth spot for a turn, but they now might give Drew Hutchison some extra rest after he threw a season-high 109 pitches in five innings Monday. Doubront, who was inked to a minor league deal just before Opening Day, holds a 2.85 ERA and 38/14 K/BB ratio over 41 innings for Triple-A Buffalo this season.

Blue Jays signed LHP Felix Doubront to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

Doubront was released by the Cubs on March 28 after allowing nine runs on 17 hits in seven Cactus League innings. The 27-year-old left-hander will serve as organizational rotation depth for the Blue Jays, who open the 2015 season with a mixed bag of very young and very old starting pitchers.

Cubs released LHP Felix Doubront.

The veteran southpaw was knocked around in his seven spring innings, allowing nine runs on 17 hits. He will receive 45 days of termination pay from the Cubs, roughly equaling $473,000. He'll look to latch on elsewhere.
Mar 28 - 2:33 PM

Cubs and LHP Felix Doubront avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.925 million contract.

Doubront joined the Cubs at the end of July in a trade with the Red Sox. He finished the 2014 season with an aggregate 5.54 ERA with a 51/33 K/BB ratio in 79 2/3 innings. The lefty battled a shoulder injury with the Red Sox and a calf strain with the Cubs, limiting his playing time and his effectiveness. Still, Doubront has yet to find success close to 500 innings in the majors, but he's still 27 years old with some time left to prove himself. He can become a free agent after the 2017 season.
Jan 15 - 12:17 PM

Felix Doubront was rocked for six runs over just 2 1/3 innings Saturday against the Dodgers.

Doubront allowed six hits (including two home runs from Adrian Gonzalez) and was chased after giving up four runs in the third inning. He struck out two and walked two in the no-decision and now owns a 3.98 ERA and 8/6 K/BB ratio in 20 1/3 innings over his first four starts with Chicago. He'll try to rebound when he makes his final start of the season next weekend against the Brewers.

Felix Doubront fired six scoreless innings Saturday in the Cubs' 6-4 victory over the Pirates.

Doubront struck out just one batter, but he held the Bucs to four hits and one walk over his six shutout frames. The 26-year-old left-hander has been sharp in all three of his starts since joining the Chicago rotation and suddenly looks like an intriguing fantasy option for the final two-plus weeks. Talent has never been an issue. De La Rosa faces the Orioles in Baltimore next.

Felix Doubront allowed just two runs over five innings but the Cubs fell to the Pirates on Saturday.

Doubront threw seven innings of one-run ball against the Cardinals in his Cubs debut last weekend and looked sharp again Saturday night at Wrigley Field. Maybe the 26-year-old left-hander is ready to right the ship after a rough end to his Red Sox tenure.

Felix Doubront fired seven innings of one-run ball Saturday as the Cubs won the first game of a doubleheader against the Cardinals.

Making his first start with the Cubs, Doubront scattered seven hits while walking one and striking out four. The only run scored on a double-play grounder from Jon Jay in the second inning. The southpaw really struggled during his time with the Red Sox this season, but he could be relevant in NL-only leagues if the Cubs give him a look in the rotation in September.

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

Doubront will make his Cubs debut on Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cardinals. The Cubs plan to utilize a six-man rotation in the month of September, meaning Doubront should stick around for the remainder of the season and could carve out fantasy value in NL-only formats.

The Cubs plan to use a six-man rotation in the month of September, with Felix Doubront remaining after his spot start on Saturday.

That means that Jacob Turner, Kyle Hendricks, Travis Wood, Jake Arrieta and Tsuyoshi Wada will all receive extra rest down the stretch run. While it's helpful to keep all of their arms fresh, it's a blow to the fantasy value of all involved hurlers.

Felix Doubront (calf) allowed three runs over six innings Sunday in a rehab start at Triple-A Iowa.

The three runs came on eight hits. Doubront has been on the disabled list with a calf strain since the Cubs acquired him from the Red Sox on July 30 and he may be asked to take another turn in the rotation at Iowa. The left-hander had a 6.07 ERA this year in Boston.

Felix Doubront (calf) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Iowa.

Doubront was acquired from the Red Sox late last month before being placed on the disabled list with a left calf strain. Look for him to join the Cubs' rotation once he gets stretched out.
Mon, Aug 11, 2014 05:11:00 PM

Felix Doubront (calf) threw a bullpen session on Sunday.

Doubront will throw a couple more bullpen sessions before beginning a rehab assignment. It's highly debatable whether he was actually hurt in the first place, so Doubront should join the Cubs' rotation once he gets stretched out.
