Felix Doubront demoted to bullpen


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Red Sox pitcher Felix Doubront will join the bullpen beginning Wednesday according to The Boston Globe, with the return of Clay Buchholz to the rotation.

Doubront has failed to finish the fifth inning of either of his last two starts, and is just 2-4 with a 5.19 ERA in 50 1/3 innings overall. The Globe also reports that the Red Sox are looking to make a trade to free up a roster spot, and Doubront is a possibility to be moved.

(6/21/2014) Red Sox pitcher Felix Doubront came off the disabled list Friday in time to start against the Athletics, but he struggled in a 4-3 loss.

Doubront actually settled for a no-decision in the start, despite failing to get out of the fifth inning. He was tagged for three runs on just two hits in 4 2/3 innings of work, as he walked four batters and allowed one home run. He also struck out four batters on 90 pitches before he was pulled from the game.

Doubront is now 2-4 with a 5.19 ERA on the season, with his next turn in the rotation set for Wednesday in Seattle.

(6/19/2014) What was expected is now official: Felix Doubront will return to the rotation for the Red Sox on Friday night in Oakland while Brandon Workman serves his six-game suspension for throwing at Tampa Bay third baseman Evan Longoria.

Felix Doubront likely starting Friday for Red Sox


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Red Sox starting pitcher Felix Doubront (shoulder) will likely be activated off the 15-day disabled list and start Friday against the A's in place of Brandon Workman, who is serving a six-game suspension, according to MLB.com.

Doubront is on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket and made his last start Sunday. He has a 1.86 ERA, .182 opponents' batting average and 13 strikeouts in 9 2/3 innings in his two rehab starts for Pawtucket.


Felix Doubront a candidate to start Friday in Oakland


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) With a ruling on Brandon Workman's appeal expected any day, the Red Sox might need a starting pitcher Friday in Oakland, reports CSNNE.com. Felix Doubront is a candidate to make that start if Workman's six-game suspension is upheld, manager John Farrell said.

Doubront is on the disabled list with a shoulder injury but was brilliant in a minor-league rehab start Sunday, tossing five hitless innings with 10 strikeouts.


Felix Doubront dominant in latest rehab start


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Red Sox pitcher Felix Doubront threw five hitless innings for Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday, striking out 10 and allowing only one ball to be hit to the outfield, reports WEEI.com. His fastball was routinely clocked in the low 90s.

Doubront, who's coming back from a shoulder strain, did walk four batters.

"I thought he showed better stuff," PawSox manager Kevin Boles told the Providence Journal. "I thought he had a feel for a breaking ball at times. His fastball ticked up in velocity and I thought he threw with quality. He got out of his delivery a few times, but thought it was pretty impressive because he was able to get back on track."

In three rehab starts, Doubront has a 2.63 ERA with 15 strikeouts and five walks in 13 2/3 innings. It's unclear when he'll rejoin the Red Sox.


Manager expresses loyalty to Felix Doubront as starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) John Farrell admits there is a competition forming at the bottom of the rotation, but he is not ready to place left-hander Felix Doubront in the bullpen for the Red Sox despite the emergence of Brandon Workman and Rubby De La Rosa.

Doubront made his latest rehab start Tuesday from a shoulder strain and gave up two runs in 4 2/3 innings while his fastball topped out at around 88 mph. But Farrell appears set to stick with him as a starter upon his return from Triple-A Pawtucket.

"We're not crossing that bridge yet," he told WEEI.com. "That means someone else [from the bullpen] is going to go and you've got guys out there that don't have options or they're not movable."

Workman and De La Rosa, however, do have options.


Felix Doubront expected to return after next rehab start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Red Sox pitcher Felix Doubront is expected to return to the team after making one more rehab start Sunday, MLB.com reports.

"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."

Out since May 21 with a shoulder strain, Doubront owns a 5.12 ERA and 31:19 K:BB ratio in 45 2/3 innings.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Felix Doubront encouraged following latest start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Red Sox starting pitcher Felix Doubront was very encouraged by his performance after allowing a season-low one earned run during a no-decision Tuesday against the Reds, per The Boston Herald.

"I’m happy -- I think I threw really good breaking balls and I felt good," said Doubront, whose ERA dipped from 5.70 to 5.09. "I didn’t get the win but we all did; this was an important game. Overall, I feel more confidence throwing the ball, a couple of walks and a couple of mistakes, but overall, I think I threw the ball well."

Doubront said he was at his best Tuesday when using his changeup.

"When I had my changeup everything changed, because I can use it in any count and get back to the count if I’m behind," he said. "It’s a good pitch for me and I have to keep it like that always, every start."

Still, Doubront realizes he needs to remain consistent to be effective.

"I think I have to be more aggressive, sometimes the long innings (while the Sox hit) make you cool down a little bit and it’s hard to go out there and try to be aggressive, because you’re opening too much and trying to do too much," Doubront said. "I tried to keep myself calm and that’s when that happened. It’s hard to throw strikes, but I have to figure out something to get that tempo and throw more strikes."

He pitched into the sixth inning before walking two of the first three batters and being pulled. He was charged with one run on five hits, while walking three batters and striking out three.

Doubront has struggled to open the season, and is now 1-3 with a 5.09 ERA in seven starts. His next outing is set for Tuesday in Minnesota.

He was charged with our runs -- three earned -- in six innings of work, while allowing five hits and a walk. Three of the four runs allowed came on a pair of home runs, but he still left the game in line for the win before the bullpen's struggles.
