Felix Doubront has been traded to the Chicago Cubs, according to Jon Morosi (Fox Sports).
The Red Sox, clearly selling low on a once-promising lefty who ran up a 6.07 ERA this season, will receive the proverbial "player to be named later".
Doubront gave the Red Sox some extremely important relief innings in Games 3 and 4 of the World Series last fall. I was one of many people who thought he'd finally put it all together this spring, but clearly, that did not happen.
Banished to the bullpen in late June, Doubront then proceeded to allow 11 runs in nine innings of relief (seven appearances), as opponents had a 1.034 OPS against him.
