Felix Doubront has been claimed off of waivers by an unidentified team according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.  Rosenthal thinks this could be part of a deal that would send Doubront to the Twins for catcher Joe Mauer who was placed on waivers.  Nick Cafardo reported that Doubront was place on waivers on August 17 so he would have cleared by now.  Either Rosenthal or Cafardo were wrong in their reporting or Doubront was placed on waivers a second time where he could not be pulled back.

The Red Sox placed Aaron Cook, Felix Doubront and Andrew Miller on trade waivers. Doubront won't be going anywhere. Sox could move Cook.

Jon Heyman does not think the Red Sox are going to claim Mauer though.

#redsox wont claim mauer on trade waivers. @ken_rosenthal 1st reported he was on waivers.
