Description: Cubs left-hander Felix Doubront worked out in the bullpen over the weekend.
Insight: It's unclear if Doubront will get a chance to start with Chicago, as Kyle Hendricks and Tsuyoshi Wada ave pitched well lately, but he needs a rehab assignment before he'll be ready to pitch.

Description: The Red Sox have traded left-hander Felix Doubront to the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named later.
Insight: Doubront said earlier this week that he wanted to be traded if Boston didn't plan to give him his starting job back, and he then went out and gave up six runs on six hits over 2/3 of an inning in relief on July 28. It's unclear if Doubront will get a chance to start with Chicago, as Kyle Hendricks and Tsuyoshi Wada ave pitched well lately.

Insight: He'll move to the bullpen when Brandon Workman's suspension ends later this week. Doubront (2-4, 5.19 ERA) can safely be dropped from all fantasy teams, though we doubt he was on many to begin with.

Description: Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront (shoulder) will start Friday against the Athletics, according to Tim Britton of the Providence Journal.
Insight: Brandon Workman is serving a suspension, so Doubront will come off the DL to take his turn in the rotation. However, he may be moved to the bullpen when Workman returns.

Description: Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront may be relegated to the bullpen when he returns from a shoulder injury later this week. SOURCE: RedSox.com
Insight: The emergence of Rubby De La Rosa and Brandon Workman at the back end of the rotation has complicated things. Doubront (2-4, 5.12 ERA) has only been average this season and John Farrell may be better off going with the hot hand. Clay Buchholz (hyperextended knee) is also close to making his return.

Insight: Doubront (2-4, 5.12 ERA, 1.55 WHIP) threw 31 of his 43 pitches for strikes, punched out two and didn't walk a batter while allowing two runs on three hits over four innings. He's expected to make a few more rehab starts before the Red Sox hope he's ready to rejoin the club in late June.
 
5/22/2014 10:39:00 AM
Description: Boston starter Felix Doubront will head to the disabled list with a strained left shoulder.
Insight: Doubront is just 2-4 with a 5.12 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP. He's won 11 games each of his last two seasons but the left-hander's ERA and WHIP have never been at fantasy-worthy levels.
 
5/20/2014 10:54:00 PM
Description: Boston left-hander Felix Doubront left Tuesday's start with shoulder fatigue and will undergo an MRI Wednesday, according to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald.
Insight: Doubront gave up back-to-back doubles to start the fifth inning and exited after a visit to the mound by the trainer and manager John Farrell. He allowed five earned runs in four innings and has a 5.12 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP this season.

Description: Boston left-hander Felix Doubront left Tuesday's start with shoulder fatigue, according to Sean McAdam of csnne.com.
Insight: Doubront gave up back-to-back doubles to start the fifth inning and exited after a visit to the mound by the trainer and manager John Farrell. He allowed five earned runs in four innings and has a 5.12 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP this season.

Description: Boston left-hander Felix Doubront left Tuesday's start with an apparent injury.

Description: Boston left-hander Felix Doubront had his start pushed back to Wednesday. SOURCE: Pete Abraham, Boston Globe
Insight: Doubront (1-3, 5.09 ERA) and Jake Peavy (1-1, 3.09 ERA) are switching places so the Red Sox will only use one left-handed starter this weekend against Detroit. The Red Sox could afford to do this because they've had three off-days in the last week and a half.
 
Cold4/24/2014 9:55:00 PM
Description: Red Sox lefty Felix Doubront gave up seven runs (three earned) on six hits in 2 2/3 innings Thursday against the Yankees.
Insight: Doubront has a 6.00 ERA, a 1.71 WHIP and a 16/11 K/BB in 24 innings this season. He walks far too many batters to be trusted in fantasy leagues.
 
Cold4/8/2014 9:32:00 PM
Description: Red Sox lefty Felix Doubront got lit up Tuesday in a loss to Texas (6 H, 3 BB, 5 ER).
Insight: He lasted just 2 2/3 innings. Doubront (1-1, 9.00 ERA) has never finished with an ERA lower than four and his strikeout to walk ratio was one of the worst in MLB last season (1.96). He's not a reliable fantasy option and never has been.
 
9/22/2013 7:12:00 PM
Description: Making his first start in over two weeks, Red Sox lefty Felix Doubront allowed two runs in seven innings Sunday against Toronto.
Insight: Doubront improved to 11-6 with the victory. He's 6-4 at home this season with a 3.84 ERA in 91 1/3 innings pitched.
 
9/17/2013 7:08:00 PM
Description: According to Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal, Felix Doubront will rejoin the Red Sox rotation Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Doubront was removed from the rotation once Clay Buchholz returned from the DL. He allowed 10 hits and 10 earned runs in 7 1/3 innings over his last two starts. However, he could be a decent streaming option against a Toronto team that will be without Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion.
 
9/16/2013 8:36:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN's Joe McDonald, lefthander Felix Doubront will rejoin Boston's starting rotation during their weekend series against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Doubront lost his rotation spot last week when Clay Buchholz came back from his shoulder injury. The 25-year-old had a nice stretch earlier this season but he's looked pretty ordinary since the All-Star break (4.58 ERA in 10 appearances).
 
Cold9/11/2013 9:24:00 PM
Description: Felix Doubront will rejoin the rotation at some point but the team hasn't determined when that is yet, according to MLB.com.
Insight: "He'll get another start," said manager John Farrell. "We've just skipped him in this turn in the rotation. He'll get some side work with (pitching coach) Juan (Nieves). We have yet to determine when he's going to actually be inserted back into the rotation." Doubront went 7-5 with a 2.99 ERA from May 16 to Aug. 27 but allowed 10 earned runs in 7 1/3 innings over his last two starts.
 
9/1/2013 10:50:00 PM
Description: Felix Doubront has had a surprising year for the Red Sox but he couldn't make it out of the fourth inning Sunday against the White Sox.
Insight: It was Doubront's shortest outing since September 1st of last year. All four of the runs Doubront (10-6, 3.89 ERA) surrendered came in the fourth inning. Despite his struggles, the Red Sox were able to hold on for the win, stretching their lead to five and a half games in the AL East.
 
8/21/2013 8:14:00 PM
Description: After throwing four innings in two straight starts, Boston lefty Felix Doubront doubled up on that Wednesday with eight innings of one-run ball against the Giants.
Insight: Doubront allowed five hits, walked one and struck out three to improve to 9-6. He has a solid 3.79 ERA despite holding a subpar 1.40 WHIP.
 
8/5/2013 12:03:00 PM
Description: Boston lefthander Felix Doubront, who posted another good outing Sunday against the Diamondbacks, is probable for Friday's scheduled start against Kansas City due to tightness in right oblique.
Insight: Doubront (7 IP, 5 H, 5 K's) has allowed three runs or fewer in 15 straight starts. That's the longest streak by a Boston starting pitcher since Pedro Martinez did that 16 times in a row between 2002 and 2003.
