Felix Doubront To Make Debut Friday Night

22-year-old lefty Felix Doubront will make his major league debut on Friday night at Fenway Park, when he starts against the Dodgers.

Doubront had a 2.51 ERA in eight starts for Portland (AA) and has a 1.08 ERA in four starts for Pawtucket (AAA). He takes the rotation spot of the currently-DL'd Daisuke Matsuzaka.

(Sean McAdam and Joe McDonald had reported the news before the confirmation.)

As long as the team is doing okay, it's sort of exciting in the face of injuries to see management scramble to assemble something workable out of bits and pieces of veterans and minor leaguers. May be all smoke and mirrors and unsustainable in the long run, but, as I say, exciting.
