Cubs Release Struggling Southpaw Doubront

The Chicago Cubs released lefty pitcher Felix Doubront today per MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat. Doubront signed with the Cubs in January as the ball club intended to shore up some left-handed depth, although he wanted to be a starter rather than a reliever. Unfortunately he was out of options and couldn’t be sent down to Triple-A Iowa, which could have done him some good. Doubront...

Felix Doubront Signs 1-YR Deal With Cubbies

(AP Photo/Matt Slocum)Former Red Sox starter Felix Doubront re-upped with Theo Epstein's Cubbies on a one-year, $1.925 million contract. Doubront—due to multiple injuries—had a disappointing 2014 (5.54 ERA). The lefty has always shown "plus" stuff, but has never really lived up to his potential. At age 27, he is still young enough to put it all together—and Chicago's North...

Sox Finally Get Compensation For Doubront

It took a while, but the Cubs finally gave the Red Sox something for LHP Felix Doubront. According to Boston.com's Nick Cafardo, Boston will get shortstop Marco Hernandez—a 22-year old left-handed hitter (although some scouting reports list him as a switch-hitter). The book on Hernandez is that he is a steady (but not spectacular) defender with a good bat. Hernandez hit .270 last...

Cubs Trade Russell and Speedy Neifi to Braves

Yesteday, the Cubs acquired LHP Felix Doubront for a player to be named later from the Boston Red Sox. A trade that I like a whole lot presuming the PTBNL isn't much and considering Doubront's ability to strikeout many hitters. A move to the NL Central certainly won't hurt his numbers either. Today, the deadline has been rocking and the Cubs big moves were out of the way earlier...

Felix Doubront has said openly that he does not appreciate the bullpen role that he has been given by the Red Sox for much of the season.  Doubront indicated that he considers himself a starter, so if he is not to start with the Red Sox he would like to be traded to a team where he would be given that opportunity.  Doubront has also had some poor showing on the mound when he has...
