Felix Doubront (elbow) threw his first bullpen session on Tuesday.

Doubront missed the entire 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery last April. The Athletics re-signed the left-hander to a minor league deal over the winter and he'll function as rotation depth assuming all goes well as he ramps things up this spring.
Feb 14 - 1:17 PM

Athletics re-signed LHP Felix Doubront to a minor league contract.

Doubront underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery this past April and probably won't be recovered until next May or June. It's a low-risk, shot-in-the-dark depth signing for the A's.

Athletics sent LHP Felix Doubront outright to Triple-A Nashville.

Doubront is working his way back from Tommy John surgery and is likely to be non-tendered this offseason. His rehab could bleed into the 2017 campaign.

Felix Doubront (elbow) is participating in sock throws.

Doubront just underwent Tommy John surgery in mid-April, so his sock throws aren't an indication that he is close to a return (a return from Tommy John in three months would defy the laws of physics), but this is one of the early steps toward a mid-season return in 2017. The next step in his rehab will come when he begins to play catch.

Athletics transferred LHP Felix Doubront from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Doubront underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery earlier this month. He's done until mid-2017.

Felix Doubront underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Tuesday.

A's head trainer Nick Paparesta told the media that it was a pretty standard procedure as far as Tommy John surgeries go. Doubront will miss the entire 2016 season.

Felix Doubront is scheduled to undergo Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Tuesday.

Doubront was supposed to open the 2016 season as the A's fifth starter, but he tore his ulnar collateral ligament in late March and will now be sidelined for the next 12-15 months. It's awful news for the 28-year-old left-hander, who had been hoping to reinvigorate his career in Oakland. He'll be a non-tender candidate next winter.

Felix Doubront will go for a second opinion on his left elbow.

Doubront was expected to begin the year as Oakland's fifth starter, but he was forced to begin the year on the disabled list with an elbow sprain. The southpaw had something he believes was similar in 2010 and was fine within two or three weeks, but surgery hasn't been ruled out depending on what is found.

Athletics placed LHP Felix Doubront on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left elbow.

Doubront suffered the injury in his final spring training start Saturday versus the Giants. It was originally called forearm tightness, but tests apparently showed some form of structural damage. He had been lined up to serve as Oakland's fifth starter to open the 2016 season. Maybe the time has already come for Jesse Hahn's return to the majors.

Felix Doubront left Saturday's start against the Giants with left forearm tightness.

He came out after throwing just 17 pitches. Doubront was scheduled to make his season debut Friday against Seattle but that might have to be pushed back. Doubront earned a 5.82 ERA across 17 innings this spring. Jesse Hahn, who was recently optioned to the minors, could be asked to fill in if Doubront lands on the disabled list.

Felix Doubront has won the fifth spot in the Athletics' rotation.

Doubront didn't have a great spring himself, posting a 6.19 ERA and 13/5 K/BB ratio over 16 innings, but the Athletics want Jesse Hahn to work on some things in the minors. The southpaw owns a 5.52 ERA over the past two seasons and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Felix Doubront said he's okay after getting hit by a comebacker Saturday against the Giants.

Trevor Brown smacked a ball off his right leg in the second inning. Doubront said he briefly lost feeling in the muscle behind his knee but the numbness subsided and didn't affect his mechanics. Players don't always feel pain when they're running on adrenaline and it's possible Doubront could experience some swelling in the next few days. Consider him day-to-day.
Sat, Mar 19, 2016 08:25:00 PM

Felix Doubront allowed one run over four innings in a start Saturday against the Giants.

Doubront scattered five hits and a walk while striking out two. The expectation continues to be that Doubront won't be in the team's starting rotation come Opening Day, but he's making a case with a 3.00 ERA this spring. It still may not be enough, but he's at least showing the A's that they have options in the event that they need a spot start during the year.
Sat, Mar 19, 2016 07:39:00 PM

Felix Doubront struck out six over three scoreless innings in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Doubront allowed just one hit and did not walk a batter. The southpaw will likely serve as a long reliever in 2016. He can be safely avoided in all fantasy formats. For his career, he holds a 4.89 ERA, but he managed to crater even worse in 2015, posting a dreadful 5.50 ERA between the Blue Jays and A's over the course of 75 1/3 innings.
